About this role
The Asset Planner will work across the transportable classroom inventory, ensuring the readiness and suitability of emergency stock, and working closely with our colleagues and stakeholders to set up data-driven forward work plans for retiring and replacing older stock.
This is a complex and sensitive area where targeted and achievable plans will be required to have had input from multiple stakeholders.
The Planner may find themselves onsite assessing condition or commissioning detailed surveys, followed by planning the replacement of dozens of units in a single tranche.
We are looking for someone who is as comfortable with data as they are onsite. A combination of a logical and practical approach, detail-focus and creative problem solving will see you thrive in this role.
Your asset management experience is based on solid understanding of IIMM and NAMS protocols.
We are a small central team working with colleagues across the country, so good communication, resilience, empathy and diplomacy will serve you well.
You will be capable of managing your own workload / priorities, as well as being proactive with colleagues outside the immediate team.
You will also offer :
The transportables space is in the early stages of its establishment within the Ministry - this gives the team a real opportunity to shape its own future and make maximum impact within the wider property group.
With the unusual twist of buildings that move, plus emergency preparedness, this work is not standard asset management. Data will be constantly refreshed and solutions and options need to be updated, particularly for stock that could be mobilised into emergency situations.
Are you ready to make a difference?
The role is fulltime, and Auckland is the preferred location, however candidates from other main centres will be considered.
We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds, including Māori, Pacific and people with disabilities, who will enrich our understanding of the education system.
As a government agency, the Ministry is committed to keeping to the Treaty of Waitangi's guiding principles in our work for and with Māori students, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
