Help shape the future of Education
At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.
Our organisation is made up of more than 3,000 talented and committed people around New Zealand, from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.
While we work in different groups and on different things, we all strive every day to make the biggest difference we can for every child, young person and adult student in our education system.
About our group and team
Education Infrastructure Service (EIS), a part of the Ministry of Education, manages the Crown's second largest property portfolio of around 2,100 schools with a book value of $19.
6 billion, the largest payroll in the country, and transportation of over 100,000 students to and from school each day.
Our vision for school property is that all schools have quality learning environments as part of a well-managed and sustainable portfolio that helps deliver equitable and excellent outcomes for every child.
We are standing up a new property team focussed on the asset and inventory management of our thousands of transportable classrooms.
The work is data-driven and works closely with a wide range of internal stakeholders.
Transportable classrooms are used to meet a range of short-term and long-term needs, including roll growth, decanting and emergency response.
The team will play an integral role in the overall preparedness and resilience of our stock, and in enabling positive impacts on the learning experience of àkonga across Aotearoa.
About this role
The Assistant Data Analyst supports the Data Analyst / Inventory Lead and plays a key role in collecting and generating granular data, forensic QA of current data, and creating valuable IP.
You will be a daily interface for colleagues around the country involved in identifying and assessing units and recording movements of transportable buildings.
This role will prioritise the updating of business-critical data items to maintain our emergency readiness and identify surplus units for normal redeployment.
We are looking for someone who is proficient in database management who can add further value to our team. A combination of a logical approach and application of forensic levels of detail will see you thrive in this role.
If you bring school or property experience such as asset management, all the better.
We are a small central team working with colleagues across the country, so good communication, resilience, empathy and diplomacy will serve you well.
You will be capable of managing your own workload / priorities, as well as being proactive with colleagues outside the immediate team.
The transportables space is in the early stages of its establishment within the Ministry - this gives the team a real opportunity to shape its own future and make maximum impact within the wider property group.
With the unusual twist of buildings that move, plus emergency preparedness, data will need to be constantly refreshed and solutions and options updated, particularly for stock that could be mobilised into emergency situations.
