Waikato District Council is working on delivering its vision of creating Liveable, Thriving and Connected Communities. To do this we need people who are innovative and community-focused.
We're looking for people who embody our Do It Right values and aren't afraid of getting stuck in.
Part of this includes creating this role to revamp our halls portfolio to ensure the running of our halls is sustainable for the future.

Being enthusiastic about community participation, you will have a handle on procurement and Health & Safety responsibilities, understand proactive maintenance and financial plans, and have clear processes for AGMS's, targeted rates and bookings.
As each of our halls are unique and come with a rich history, you will have a sharp eye for improvement and be good at working with people to find solutions.
You will have high standards in all areas and are driven to expand community participation.
Ideally, you'll have experience engaging in the community, working with multiple stakeholders, been involved with asset management, along with an understanding of local government.
