The HPSNZ mission is “to create a world-leading, sustainable high performance sport system”. The philosophy of HPSNZ is “Performance Driven - Athlete Focused - Coach Led”.

Reporting to the General Manager - Strategy, Intelligence and Networks, the Intelligence Manager will work to increase data capability, align and leverage existing capabilities, promote and coordinate data linkage across the organisation, and lay the foundation for a system-wide intelligence model post-Tokyo 2020.

The role will also lead the organisation’s capability to understand and act on collective intelligence, to measure progress against strategic intent and improve data flow between the organisation’s staff and stakeholders.

Periodically, the Intelligence Manager will be required to deliver analysis projects, to support the dissemination of intelligence to the Senior Leadership Team and Performance Team Leads.

To be considered for this role you will have demonstrated success in an analysis / intelligence role with a high comprehension of data systems and data infrastructure. Your experience will preferably come from within elite sport or it may be from within a relevant high-performance business environment.

A strategic thinker with a desire to create proactive and sustainable change, you must be able to analyse data and statistics in order to diagnose problems and identify operational actions that inform business objectives. You will be experienced in managing end-to-end analysis projects as well as embedding intelligence and insights as a vital part of an organisation’s ‘decision-making toolkit’.

A high standard of communication and interpersonal skills is required, with the capability to listen, build consensus, and consider diverse inputs. You will excel at using data to ‘tell a story’ to both technical and non-technical audiences, identifying user requirements, engaging with external vendors, and implementing new systems and platforms.

This is an exciting time to be joining HPSNZ. With a new structure and renewed focus, you will be part of a world leading organisation committed to ensuring New Zealand's athletes and teams win on the world stage. HPSNZ is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to diversity and social inclusion.
