About Us

At Hutt City Council our vision is to build a connected, resilient and inclusive city where all of our people thrive - Kia noho mai tēnei tāone hei pou herenga waka, hei pou herenga kaupapa, hei wāhi whai hua ki hōna iwi.

Our council has set out a bold and ambitious plan for us to achieve. We are facing some new and exciting challenges and this offers our staff unique opportunities to create innovative positive changes with our communities.

We are reshaping our organisation to enable increased responsiveness to the needs and expectations of our communities, to be flexible in our approach, to meet future demands, to grow our capability, and to create an inclusive and progressive work environment for our staff.

About this role

This role is a great opportunity to create and develop programmes the way you always wanted to. We are a relatively lean organisation, so influencing outcomes is less complex, therefore very satisfying.

  • Manage assigned projects through all phases of the project life cycle to deliver the project to quality, on time, within budget and achieving the agreed outcomes
  • Assist with ensuring Council has a centralised Council wide programme management office and has developed and deployed project management processes and standards across Council
  • Establish and maintain effective and cooperative relationships with key individuals, local community groups and key stakeholders, ensuring a commitment to collaboration
  • Embrace and contribute to change management processes.
  • About you

    You have been working across projects and programmes for a while, and you love the idea of creating best practice solutions.

    Your project management experience allows you to be the subject matter expert and you love teaching others and creating innovative solutions.

    We are based in the Hutt, so if commuting has become a tiresome bother why not come and weave your magic in the Hutt community and make a difference to the lives of those who live here.

    Skills and experience we value in this role include :

  • Demonstrated business expertise in providing project advice as well as at least 5 years' experience as a Project Manager
  • An solid understanding of current PMI or PRINCE2 project management practices
  • Experience with budgets, forecasts and financial management with the ability to work under pressure to tight deadlines, prioritise workload and be adaptable to changing priorities.
  • What next?

    If you are ready to bring your skills to our City council and work with a collegial and fun team who love to share ideas and make things happen, this is the role for you.

    Working for Hutt City Council, you'll be rewarded with a career that you enjoy and can take real pride in in an environment to die for.

    Bring your passion to make a difference, along with your commitment to co-create positive outcomes for the community, and we know you'll be proud to be part of our success.
