Using data insights to deliver operational improvement for New Zealand’s justice sector


Ministry of Justice



Project description

Sector Group is a multi-disciplinary team that brings together the best of strategy, policy, data analysis, research and evaluation capabilities to inform decision making by Justice Sector leaders.

The successful applicant will contribute to data analysis, performance reporting, and “what-if” modelling across Ministry of Justice.  The data-driven insights generated from this work ensure the Ministry’s operational leaders have a clear view of external trends and operational issues. This allows them to focus their front-line improvement efforts on the operational areas that will make the biggest difference to New Zealanders.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference and be part of a motivated team.
