  • Do you enjoy leading people?
  • Do you have exceptional communication and people skills?
  • Do you have a passion for local government and working in the infrastructure services field?
  • An exciting opportunity has arisen at Waitomo District Council - we are looking for a General Manager - Infrastructure Services to lead and manage the effective and efficient supply of Infrastructure Services to WDC's internal and external customers.

    The key focus of this executive leadership role is to ensure the delivery of high-quality infrastructure services and community facilities for people living in the Waitomo District.

    The portfolio of responsibilities is large. Infrastructure Services provides a range of services across the Three Waters, Solid Waste, and Roading.

    The Group also provides Community Facilities (comprising Recreation and Culture and Parks and Reserves).

    You will provide strategic direction, long-term asset management planning, and explore new and creative ways to deliver cost-effective management of Council owned properties, land, and facilities.

    Reporting to the Chief Executive, the General Manager Infrastructure Services is a key member of the Senior Management Team.

    Your day-to day-work will be varied and there will be professional challenges, but more important than what we do is why we do it, which is to keep our District vibrant and helping it thrive into the future.

    To be considered for this role, you need to be a strong and inspirational leader. You will be a person that can form and maintain strong relationships with a diverse range of external stakeholders.

    It is also important that you are a problem-solver, a creative thinker, and a critical thinker.

    If you have the ability to build and enhance performance within a team environment, then this may be the role for you.

    It would be an advantage if you have worked as a senior leader in a local government environment delivering infrastructure-related services, however, this role may appeal to an experienced senior manager wanting to progress their career to a challenging and highly influential executive role.

    The position will be based in Te Kuiti and as an employee of Waitomo District Council, you will be part of a friendly, supportive, and goal-focused team.

    The work environment is varied and rewarding with opportunities for personal growth and development.

    We are a Council that is big on people. We work hard to have the right people working with us and are committed to building their capabilities.

    We offer flexible working options and a rewarding career with a team that's full of initiative and innovative thinking.

    Waitomo has so much to offer right on your doorstep and is located just one hour from major cities, lakes, and beaches. Plus there's the added bonus of never worrying about traffic or parking, leaving plenty of opportunities to get out and explore, creating an exceptional work-life balance.

    Application Closing Date : Tuesday, 26th October at 11 : 55pm.
