Whangarei, New Zealand

Reference : 5773838

Here at Whangarei District Council we're in a bit of a transition phase while we wait for the new Civic Centre to be ready.

Currently spread across multiple sites within the CBD and further afield, each location has its own unique set of security considerations and we're looking for a Security Coordinator with experience in security planning and implementation to work with us for 6 months to coordinate our security efforts and put plans in place across all sites.

This role plays a pivotal part in the oversight and development of measures to safeguard our employees and the physical environments in which we all work.

As the successful candidate you will develop effective Security Policies, contingency management plans and SOPs ensuring security risks to Council and its staff are effectively managed and planned for as well as developing and facilitating training across council to increase staff knowledge, readiness and capability around dealing with potential security issues.

Another key focus will be to actively co-ordinate the security response for on-site and / or organisational incidents or events, including arrangements for crowd control.

To secure this fixed term opportunity working within our fantastic Business Support Team you will be able to demonstrate experience in some or all of the following :

  • Extensive relevant security co-ordination or planning experience
  • Experience in developing effective and pragmatic security related policies, procedures and management plans
  • Experience in effectively developing and facilitating security related training programmes
  • A strong customer focused approach to work
  • Highly adept at de-escalating emotive situations
  • Experience in coordinating incident responses
  • Ability and desire to embrace and work in accordance with our organisational tikanga.
  • Whangarei is a district on the rise. It is Northland's only city and largest commercial centre. Nestled between the forest clad hills at the heart of the beautiful Whangarei Harbour, nowhere in the district is more than 40 kilometres away from our spectacular coastline and commuting to WDC's CBD location is a breeze.

    There's a lot that'll make you 'Love it Here!'
