At REANNZ we work to provide high-performance network solutions for our country's top researchers and educators, who often need access to emerging technology and niche creative solutions to achieve their ambitions. Our people are highly-skilled, passionate about our purpose, collaborative, and member-focused. As a small but highly effective organisation, we look for motivated, innovative people who can identify and implement creative yet pragmatic solutions for both REANNZ and our members.

Reporting to the Chief Engagement Manager, the Science Engagement Manager is part of REANNZ's engagement team, and will help REANNZ to build relationships with our members and represent us in key member forums. Key relationships will include executive and science staff, including universities, Crown Research Institutes, ITPs and others. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and delivering, in partnership with the wider engagement team, a science-focused engagement approach and lead its implementation nationwide.

The Science Engagement manager will:

  • build strong relationships and partnerships with relevant scientists and other researchers across the REANNZ member community;
  • provide a range of technical support and development initiatives for REANNZ members, problem solving and contributing to their user experience;
  • identify niche and wider business opportunities for REANNZ in the research and education community; and
  • contribute to the wider REANNZ culture.

The successful candidate will possess a relevant tertiary qualification in the research and/or sciences IT area and have experience in the pure or applied area of research and industry. You should be able to demonstrate excellent relationship development and senior level client management skills along with a passion for helping the cutting-edge research and education communities REANNZ serves across New Zealand.

An excellent working knowledge of 'big data' transfer methods and high-end networking, compute and storage infrastructure knowledge is essential. You will be able to hold credible technical conversations with confidence, and you will be comfortable interfacing at both the executive and academic level. You'll also like to get stuff done, prioritising commitments to deliver on outcomes.

So, if you are highly skilled, collaborative and passionate about our purpose, demonstrate good judgment and can 'do the right thing' in the best interests of REANNZ and its members we would love to hear from you.
