About the role
We are looking for a Senior Investigator to join our newly establish Compliance team.
In this role, you will contribute to ensure smooth and robust running of the Compliance Team by bringing your specialist investigative expertise. The unit is responsible for managing the delivery of compliance, general investigation, and prosecution activities across New Zealand both onshore and offshore.

We are looking for someone who understands that compliance is in everyone's best interest, and when investigations do take place, they happen in a robust manner. You will play a key role in ensuring quality and consistency of advice and practices.
The Senior Investigator is expected to develop and maintain good working relationships and networks with regulators such as Worksafe, local government, Environmental Protection Authority and Department of Conservation, as well as with Petroleum and Minerals companies.
Ideally you bring the following skills and experience;
- Extensive experience in leading, planning and undertaking complex investigations and prosecutions.
- Tertiary qualification, preferably in law enforcement or related field or relevant experience
- Excellent understanding and application of the NZ legislative framework around investigations and prosecution
