About the opportunity:

Central Hawke’s Bay District Council has a great opportunity to head our Infrastructure Operations within the Community Infrastructure & Development Group. The spotlight has never been more closely focussed on New Zealand’s Public Infrastructure and at Central Hawke’s Bay we know that thriving community needs infrastructure managed and maintained in the right way. Our Council has undergone fundamental change in its delivery of infrastructure-related services over the past 3 years with new contracts, new capital programmes and significant investment in people and assets. Now we are in search of a new star to lead the operational delivery across our 3 Waters and Solid Waste portfolios.

Reporting directly to the Group Manager but working in partnership with our internal capital projects team, our contracting partner Veolia and other stakeholders, the successful candidate will have strong operational management skills. An enthusiasm for asset management will drive behaviours across the team and the continual improvement in our asset management practices. The role demands more than a reactive approach to fixing problems and will be forwards focussed.

This role demands driven and proactive leadership with a passion for customer excellence with an outstanding relationship building and communication skillset. Working for the community it is critical that the successful candidate is a strong planner and organiser who doesn’t leave things to chance.

About you:

Ideally you would have the following skills;

  • An understanding of asset management principles
  • 5+ years project management experience in complex infrastructure projects working with contractors and engineers
  • The ability to interact with a diverse range of people
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Experience with 3 waters would be highly valued but is not mandatory
