Team Leader - RMA Consents


Reference: 4658498

Our RMA Consents Department are on the hunt for a new Team Leader to lead and mentor staff as they review resource consents for our District.

Currently the processing consents team consists of Planners and Admin support, and we are always looking for additional talent to add to the team. We are a busy bunch and we work well together.

The RMA Consents team currently manage on average 50 applications per month. The purpose of this role is to ensure that council meets the legislative responsibilities it has under the RMA for processing those consents. The role is also about becoming a trusted leader, maintaining a good and healthy team environment and adding innovative thinking to Council.

Skills and Experience

We want a person who has a genuine desire to make a real difference in the community we serve. Your great people skills will enable you to work successfully with a wide range of staff and customers and your collaborative approach will enable work across the organisation. You enjoy a positive team culture and interacting with a wider team consisting of specialists from other parts of Council to see projects succeed and outcomes delivered. A resilient and adaptable attitude will be an asset to you in this role.

We are looking for an individual with at least 5 years' experience (including a minimum of 2 years working in a leadership role). Experience with hearings is expected, and Environment Court experience would also be beneficial. A full NZPI membership, or commitment to pursuing full membership, is preferred.

A key attribute for this position will be an interest in leading, managing and growing a team. You have to be comfortable with modelling the behaviours we expect all staff to exhibit, and providing direction for our less experienced planners.

If you are looking to move your planning career forward into a people leadership role where you will also have a direct impact on the district you live in, all the while growing and developing a team … this role is for you.

In return for the skills and experience you bring to the Team and Council, we offer a range of benefits including:

  • Health Insurance - provided through Southern Cross Health Care
  • Life Insurance
  • Flexi Work Options
  • Active Social Club
  • Contribution to a Professional Membership
  • Access to a wide range of corporate discounts

Because we are only as good as the people we employ we encourage you to bring your whole self to work.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the People and Capability team on (09) 430 4200 or 0800 932 463.
