We want all people in New Zealand to receive the support they need to avoid injury and manage their own wellbeing

We think the ability to make a real difference to the lives of all New Zealanders is a great reason to come to work each day! This role provides you with an opportunity to deliver meaningful outcomes for the people we serve through the policy's team mahi, and you will be recognised and rewarded for your achievement.


You’ll be recognised as a thought leader, bringing innovative approaches to solving complex problems. Working collaboratively across ACC and externally, you’ll support robust decision making by the ACC Board, Senior Management and Ministers through effective use of evidence and maintaining strong relationships.


We have the advantage of being able to draw on a wealth of diverse perspectives, experience and technical expertise to develop robust and practical advice, as well as the satisfaction of seeing the policies you’ve developed right through to operational implementation.


We’re committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi by providing space for mātauranga Māori-based approaches to develop tools, actions and knowledge that serve Māori and Tangata Tiriti (non-Māori).  Our Te Tiriti o Waitangi direction is guided by the Whāia Te Tika - ‘Pursue What is Right’ – Māori Strategy. It illustrates our commitment to improve Māori access, experience and outcomes through our role in managing the ACC scheme.


Through our client-led focus to understand people’s needs, we ensure our policies are fit-for-purpose and our services are effective – after all, they are needed by most people in New Zealand at some point in their life.


What we are looking for from you to be successful in this role:

  • An experienced policy professional who is passionate about delivering robust, relevant policy advice to decision makers.
  • Experience within a regulatory environment.
  • Sound judgement with an analytical ability allowing you to assimilate complex information and provide advice accordingly.
  • Superb relationship management and communication skills allowing you to present information in a meaningful way.
  • A natural ability to form strong, credible relationships with stakeholders across an organisation.
  • Inclusive, safe and collaborative working style which creates space for diverse perspectives
  • Commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and understanding of its application to the role.

If you can tick off a few of the list above we’d love to hear from you.  For us, it’s about how you go about your work – the relationships you build along the way and how you work with others for success.

We have two opportunities that would suit people from a strong policy background with legislative and regulatory processes, particularly with experience in a financial or economic field and/or a health sector role.


Working at ACC:

We know that a diverse and inclusive team helps us meet the needs of our customers. Here are some ways we encourage that:

  • Employee networks to support our colleagues from diverse backgrounds.
  • The option to explore flexible working that suits your needs and ours.
  • Development opportunities in te reo Māori me ngā tikanga.
