About the Company

Able is NZ’s leading provider of media access services - providing captioning and audio description to make sure content can be seen and heard by everyone. From media and news, through to the Olympic Games, Able provides this incredible service to some 880,000 deaf and hard of hearing people and some 180,000 blind low vision kiwis.

Able is a For-Purpose organisation with a dedicated team who work hard to produce accessible content, and who all passionately believe in this basic human right.

About the Role

It’s all about “getting things done”. You will refresh, develop and implement processes and strategies, helping create well-oiled and efficient business frameworks.

Tweaking the current, while designing new ways of working – you will lead the charge when it comes to ‘whole of business’ operational tools that work practically today but are scalable for the future.

Business continuity will underpin everything you do – as will collaboration and great communication.

In short, the remit includes such things as

• Developing and leading best practice standards to align with the Executive’s organisational objectives

• Contributing to initiatives and supporting business leaders across all things people, performance, capability and culture

• Partnering with the CE to support governance, compliance and the Board’s organisational expectations – you will be a trusted advisor

• Reviewing of financial planning, budgeting and reporting processes for optimum delivery and decision making, including risk mitigation

• Reviewing and designing business tools and frameworks to maximise productivity and quality of operational functions. Be that systems, property, health & safety, procurement and contracts, or people – you will enable people be their ‘best selves’.

What will be pivotal to the success of this however, is you…

About You

With a genuine ‘nothing too big – nothing too small’ aptitude, you can think strategically with the commercial maturity to lead others on a journey. Complement this with your eagerness to do whatever it takes to make things tick and contribute at every level – then we should talk!

Taking burden away from the CE, you’re a thinker and a “doer” and know how to pre-empt what is needed before it’s even needed!

Being self-directed and confident, you can work as effectively on your own, as you can with others a team, and you constantly exude a warmth that engages everyone around you. Wherever you work you become that “go to person”.

Your customer centricity will be supported with a tertiary qualification, and of benefit could be exposure to the broadcasting world.

…But, being a purpose led person, this matters to you above all else – and you are nothing short of excited after reading this advert!
