You Need To Be Quick





Dear SSANZ members,

Are you looking for a new job, then you might consider this:
There are some interesting phrases in the text of that advertisement. For example,
An admission “Police led the development of policy “
A warning “There is still much to do…”
And more “to enable the delivery of elements of the proposed new legislation.
It looks as though Police are preparing for more and more policy changes through their new powers to create regulation.
Will their sights be aimed at your favourite firearm?
Do your mates know about this?  Sign them up to SSANZ today. 

Best regards,

Got this just a few minutes ago. The job has been deleted. They obviously don’t like the attention it has been getting. I wonder why they would advertise on Seek. I guess it would help being from the LGBTwhateverthefuckyoueare community.
This is the kind of language you would need to be conversant in.

  1. It said

    Manager – firearms policy
    Police National Headquarters
    Salary Range: $130,730.00 – $176,870.00
    2 Years Fixed Term
    Job Requisition ID 11893

    Are you an experienced and energetic policy manager looking to make a real difference in a high profile area of legislative reform?

    Since the attack on Christchurch mosques on 15 March last year the Government has had a focus on improving the firearms legislation. Police led the development of policy which resulted in the prohibition of most semi-automatic and large capacity firearms, and the establishment of a large scale amnesty and buyback of prohibited firearms. The Minister of Police also introduced the Arms Legislation Bill to Parliament in September 2019. This Bill seeks to modernise the regulatory framework for the safe use and possession of firearms.

    There is still much to do. The successful candidate will lead a highly dedicated team of Policy staff, working alongside our operational policing colleagues to lead the establishment of regulations to enable the delivery of elements of the proposed new legislation.

    The ideal candidate will have the ability and experience to lead legislative reform in a highly complex and fast-paced environment, with a high level of public interest and work with the Minister of Police, senior Police colleagues and a range of highly engaged stakeholders.

    • This will be a waste of yet more taxpayers money as Simon should make it clear it won’t happen under the National Govt come 20/2/2020 so the Bush Kommander can concentrate by removing ILLEGAL guns from gangs, we pay taxes for Police to the job of protecting citizens not writing legislation or conducting armed raid on innocent select committee submitter s. SIMON are you listening or will you rely on ACT to suggest sensible policy???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????



  2. This is wrong on so many fronts.
    The Police should not be leading policy development.
    That is the responsibility of the Government.
    It is unbelievable that at the top levels of this body they don’t understand their role.
    Scary stuff.



  3. The advert says this is a business. No it is not a business. Police are a service provided at taxpayers expense.

    To suggest this service should be developing regulations that they will enforce is very wrong.

    The activity from Police since 15 March on Arms legislation amendments using the Christchurch incident as a catalyst has not been helpful to this country in my observation. This advertisement indicates to me that serious change at the upper level of that organisation may be necessary. My view is that Ministerial oversight has failed as well.



  4. Did they withdraw the ad because SLG received an unsolicited text that she didn’t reply to from A Friend who just happened to have her phone number and who might have some skills that could be put to use and who Just happened to Accidentally share a table at a cafe with a government minister who may have offered SLGs friend a contract for a job that hasn’t been approved yet?
    That wouldn’t happen, would it?
    Oh, wait …
