Corporate Planner (part-time) :
Te Kaunihera aa Takiwaa o Waikato (Waikato District Council) is not a 'typical local government' employer, we are on a journey to become exceptional, and we'd love for you to be part of that! Our vision is to build Liveable, Thriving, and Connected Communities as our district grows.
Who are we looking for
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced local government operator to join our Corporate Planning team on a part-time basis (between 2 and 3 days per week).
You will join three other Corporate Planners, a Policy Adviser and a Team Leader working on a diverse range of bylaw and policy work, Key Performance Indicators reporting, and Annual Plans and Reports.
If you're looking for a flexible opportunity to build on your local government experience, and have a strong community and engagement focus, this is the role for you!
We're looking for an experienced corporate planner, someone with an inclusive and effective engagement style, great communication and project management skills, and a good knowledge of the Local Government Act.
You'll also need to be a structured thinker, combined with the ability to think laterally about future scenarios and a relevant tertiary qualification in planning, social sciences or similar.
If this sounds like you and you're ready for the next challenge, we'd love to hear from you!
Why join our team
Our head office is based in north Waikato's Ngaruawahia, just 10 minutes from Hamilton. You've got the benefits of an easy commute, free parking, work-life balance and the chance to hit the Hakarimatas on your lunch break.
