Senior Policy Advisor
- Broad portfolio of work.
- Contribute to the importance of the sector for our country.
- Autonomous position.
The Road Transport Forum NZ (RTF) is the national body representing the commercial road freight industry. It provides unified national representation for several regional trucking associations, and it works with national, regional and local government to further develop an efficient road freight sector. RTF actively promotes measures to encourage further development of the sector, within key policy settings and alongside enforcing government departments.
Reporting to the Chief Executive, the Senior Advisor Policy will provide expert policy advice to the CE and RTF’s member associations. There will be a focus on raising public awareness of the sector, helping the Forum gain an understanding of the implications of legislation and regulations, and developing policy that supports the industry. The portfolio is broad and includes primary sector transport, fuel, ports, education, health and safety, and employment. An important part of this role involves a high level of engagement with sector professionals and key sector corporates.
This position requires a person with well-developed policy experience to an intermediate or senior level. Ideally, you will have experience from the transport or infrastructure sector, be comfortable engaging with people from all walks of life, and be a person who can effectively work autonomously. Good writing skills are also important.
If you would like the opportunity to join a small but high-profile organisation, and contribute to the importance of road freight transport and the positive impact it has for our country, then we would like to hear from you.
