The Reserve Bank of New Zealand has a growing team of committed communication professionals who are supportive and focused in their efforts. While the Bank has an ambitious plan to deliver, they have fun along the way, celebrate successes and make the most of the rich opportunities for growth and learning.

The Bank’s work has a big impact on the lives of all New Zealanders, and they carry that responsibility with pride. If you’d like to join a team of professionals who are passionate about the prosperity and wellbeing of New Zealanders, and contribute to a sustainable and productive economy, we would love to hear from you.



You will provide support to implement the Bank’s communication programmes and plans, working closely with colleagues  across a wide range of communications activity including developing communication plans, monitoring and analysing the media in order to coordinate responses to public, stakeholder and media inquiries, organising stakeholder events. You will also help deliver the Bank’s daily media reports and provide summaries on key issues and activities.



Bringing experience in either communications or journalism, you will be comfortable working without a firm blueprint, allowing for your initiative and sound judgement.

An interest in the digital communications world such as web and social media channels, coupled with excellent interpersonal skills and your ability to write clearly and concisely for different audiences would make you a great asset to the Bank’s communications team and we want to hear from you.
