Senior Technical Project Manager

Role : Senior Technical Project Manager

Location : Wellington

Job type : Fixed Term

Duration : 30th June 2022

Salary : $110,000 - $160,000

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to be a part of the programme team who are delivering a greenfield Enterprise Data and Analytics Platform (EDAP) which will support the transformation of delivery of data services.

Oranga Tamariki expects the EDAP to be one of its key strategic platforms going forward. Migration of data assets from the existing data platform (provided by another agency) is also a key element of our work.

The new platform will enable us to improve the lives of tamariki, rangatahi and their whānau throughout New Zealand.

The data we hold is precious; it enables us to support tamariki and their whānau, it allows us to understand what works and develop and refine our services, it enables whānau, hapū, iwi and community organisations to care for their children, and it tells the stories of the tamariki who have been in our care - something they and their descendants may return to in the future.
