NZSA launches security industry careers website

The NZSA are thrilled to announce the launch of a careers website for the security industry. This NZSA initiative is designed to provide a comprehensive and structured introduction to roles within the security industry and the pathway opportunities for those seeking career progression into more senior positions.

The website includes information on the roles, skill set requirements, training requirements and options, indicative pay scales and possible pathways into other sectors or industries, featuring short videos of employees in their roles, talking about their jobs and what they enjoy most – the inclusion of further videos will be a work in progress as we continue to develop the site content.

We view the website as a great support tool for the MSD Skills for Industry programme and introducing the security industry to those seeking employment – be it school leavers, those seeking a career change or the newly unemployed through the impact of Covid-19. In addition, we believe it will provide a valuable resource for our members in their recruitment process.

Privacy Act 2020 changes

The Privacy Act 2020 introduces great protections for individuals and some new obligations for businesses and organisations. The changes include the requirement to report serious privacy breaches to the Privacy Commissioner and to affected people.

The Privacy Commissioner has new powers to help people access their own information and to require businesses and organisations to comply with the law.

There are increased fines for organisations that don’t comply, and there are new rules when sending personal information overseas.

You can find out more about the changes on the Commisison’s resources page.
