23d ago

Dunedin is experiencing the biggest growth in its economy in a decade, and at the heart of this is a construction boom, with large projects by the university already under way, and more in the pipeline such as the new Dunedin Hospital.

In addition, our heritage buildings are being revitalised, commercial buildings are being upgraded, earthquake strengthening projects are underway, and new dwellings are on the rise.

Be part of this exciting future by joining our Building Services team as a Senior Officer. This is a newly established multi-

faceted technical role which is likely to morph over time. The role will therefore suit someone receptive to change and can work in an environment of ambiguity.

  • Balancing customer service and a regulatory function, the Senior Officer is primarily responsible for training (and in the future possibly leading) of new technical recruits;
  • undertaking technical competency assessments of Building Consent Officers and Inspectors; leading technical improvement initiatives;
  • undertake back up processing of building consents / inspections.

    If you have experience in this field of work, and are looking for a new challenge, then this is your chance to be part of a motivated and supportive team, while earning a competitive salary.

    To be successful in this role, you will ideally have many of the following :

  • An appropriate NZQA L6 qualification as per regulation 18 of the Building (Accreditation of Building Consent Authorities) Regulations 2006.
  • A minimum of 5 - 6 years' trade experience, which would ideally include residential and commercial projects
  • Effective decision making skills
  • People leadership skills; being able to effectively lead, manage and motive teams and individuals
  • Communication skills; ability to effectively communicate verbally (including providing feedback) and write reports (including competency assessments)
  • Customer focus; ability to deliver expectations for both internal and external customer using a one team approach
  • Computer skills; ability to learn new / bespoke computer software and well as an intermediate knowledge of Microsoft suite of products
  • If you are ready for an exciting new challenge within the Building Services team, in one of the world's great small cities, then we look forward to hearing from you!

    Remuneration range is up to $88,423 depending on qualifications and experience.
