2d ago

We want more good people to come and do great things with us!

We love where we live. That's why we work so hard to look after our region and the people who live and work in the Waikato region.

Our work is as diverse as the region we care for; from the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu. We've got ambitious goals and there are some tricky issues, but that's what makes it so interesting!

The Education team within the Communications and Engagement Section at Waikato Regional Council has been tasked with the job of enabling youth to become lifelong learners and sustainable thinkers, passionate about our region's natural resources.

We are a looking for a positive, resilient, can-do advisor who is full of ideas, passionate about youth led initiatives, behaviour change action, social marketing and community education and knows how to get the job done!

Mahia te mahi he painga mo te iwi!

The Education team is responsible for the delivery of Enviroschools, road safety, waste management, sustainability and other environmental initiatives.

However, this role is much bigger than this; the Education projects advisor will work right across the organisation designing and implementing effective and targeted programmes that support council's priority work programmes with a focus on youth and secondary schools.

This role is permanent part time (0.5 FTE), with flexibility around when those hours are conducted.

Critical to success in this role is your ability to take people on the journey with your inclusive and collaborative working style, sharing your knowledge, skills and experience.

You will be a creative and strategic thinker with excellent communication skills and an understanding of how to take a project from concept to completion.

Your relationship skills will be second to none, and building strong networks both internally and externally will come naturally to you.

You will be able to demonstrate previous experience in :

  • Working collaboratively
  • Co-design
  • Programme delivery within a schools / early childhood or youth environment.
  • Planning and evaluation of programmes.
  • Waikato Regional Council is a great place to work and if this sounds like the challenge you have been looking for apply today.
