Job Description

Forensic Accountant (Asset Recovery Unit)

Permanent, Full-time

Remuneration range : $80,902,00 - $ 109.457,00

Job Requisition 7259

The New Zealand Police Asset Recovery Unit's primary roles are to deny criminals the opportunity to benefit from their offending or the ability to re-

invest in criminal activity. Police do this by forfeiture of their "ill-gotten gains" and making sure that crime really doesn't pay.

International trends among Law Enforcement Agencies indicate that recovering assets is often more successful and may be a bigger deterrent than the criminal prosecution.

That trend is being mirrored in New Zealand.

The Criminal Proceeds (Recovery) Act 2009 is a relatively new piece of legislation based on civil court processes. You will be encouraged to use your initiative and explore ways of using the Act to recover criminal gains.

You will be part of a successful team based in Wellington. Nationally ARU are recruiting 19 new staff. Wellington has received 5 of those positions, with one assigned to Forensic Accountant.
