Lauren Symmons


My client is seeking specific experience to assist in the development of its ISSP to clearly define the future technology platforms and environments required to enable the organisation to meet its strategic priorities.  

The ISSP will feed into the long-term vision, goals and objectives of the organisation, as well as developing a comprehensive and integrated view of annual work planning, decision making and performance monitoring. This ultimately feeds into how they create increasing value for its customers and New Zealanders over the medium to long term, within the available funding.

The ISSP will also describe the investment and implementation approach to move from their current state to the defined future state and develop a high-level business case and roadmap to articulate key milestones on the journey towards the defined future. It is expected that the roadmap will consider a range of factors: technology requirements (for example network and infrastructure, integration, interoperability and applications), information management, service requirements (functional and non-functional in response to business needs), enabling policy and process changes, people capability and capacity, and will include a plan for renewing/replacing legacy systems.

Responsibilities of the role

The ISSP Project Director will provide specific expertise to lead and manage the ISSP Project under the direction of management and in conjunction with technical and business staff. This role will report to the Chief Technology Officer.
  • Previous hands-on experience leading the delivery of an ISSP within a public sector context; note that private sector experience is also desirable if possible
  • Detailed working knowledge of successful ISSP frameworks
  • Establishment and management of project governance including Project Board and key stakeholders
  • Oversee preparation of detailed project plans including resources, milestones, timeframes, deliverables and performance indicators
  • Manage strategic and long-term risks and issues

We need an agile, flexible, resourceful person who is able to deliver under pressure.  This person will need to know how to contribute as part of a successful and driven team.
