Our experience extends across multiple sectors including Education, Transport, Health, Buildings, Airports and Ports. We strongly believe it’s our job to share our real-world knowledge, leaving our clients better placed to navigate New Zealand’s complex project pathways.


Our Data Team provides in-depth assessment, insights and forecasting on some of the biggest and most exciting projects around New Zealand.

We get to the heart of the project issues allowing us to present deeper and more meaningful insights to our clients, in a project language they understand.


Joining the Frequency Data team will see you become part of a fast-growing sector of an exciting and booming industry, working on real-life projects that you will see be constructed, helping to shape a better New Zealand for all New Zealanders to enjoy.



We’re looking for a talented senior data expert and self-motivated problem solver, who loves to make the complex simple!


You will be working closely with clients to understand their existing data, systems and objectives, then design, develop and implement robust solutions to overcome their complex challenges. You will be working in the overarching data management area as well as the analysis area, unlocking insights to help client’s deliver their projects efficiently. To be successful in this role it will be vital to develop, manage and grow client relationships, whilst providing mentorship and leadership to data team members and advising the wider Frequency team on data related matters.


We are looking for candidates with experience in:


  • Identifying and proactively responding to opportunities to provide added value to clients via their data
  • Leading the design and implementation of technology solutions that meet client requirements using both cloud and on-premise technology (experience with the Microsoft Ecosystem is beneficial)
  • Implementing strong data governance and quality assurance practices to ensure high-quality solutions for clients and stakeholders
  • Establishing and managing complex data storage and data pipeline architectures; integrating multiple data sources to create a single source of truth (i.e. database/datalake/data lakehouse, set up and management, API integration)
  • Production and deployment of data visualisations (i.e. Reports & Dashboards using; Excel, Power BI, Tableau etc) extracting business insights from the data to assist management decision making.
  • Working knowledge and understanding of data analysis and data analysis tools (e.g. Excel, Power Query, Data Models, SQL, R, Python, Power BI, Tableau, Snowflake, Microsoft Azure, AWS etc)
  • Management of a team at a project level (direct line management experience beneficial)


Additionally it would be beneficial but not essential to have experience with:

  • Creating complex business solutions using the Microsoft Power Platform (i.e. Power Automate, Power Apps and Power BI) and Microsoft SharePoint.


Most importantly, you will bring a growth mindset and a problem solving attitude - we work in real-world projects where there are always interesting challenges to overcome! This is a genuine opportunity for the right candidate to stamp their mark by developing and growing a team around them, in a supportive company with an existing client base.



At Frequency we believe in empowering our people to make meaningful change. By providing a stimulating and supportive environment, our team are exposed to exciting and challenging projects while working alongside exceptional industry specialists. This ensures that everyone, from Graduate to Partner, has opportunities to learn and grow, and further develop their specialist skill base.
