Hamilton is buzzing – and here’s your chance to be part of it!

We are on the hunt for a Corporate Planning Manager to join our Strategy and Planning team at Hamilton City Council.

Our great river city is buzzing. With an extra 21,000 people expected to call Hamilton home over the next 10 years, it’s our role at Council to make sure we plan well for the future of our city – while retaining the things that make our city so special today.

We’re all about connecting our community and our council. It’s about making sure we work alongside our community so we can understand, and plan for, the things that make the most difference for Hamiltonians.

This influential role is responsible for delivering some of the organisation’s most significant plans, including our 10-Year Plan and Annual Plan. In doing so, you will ensure that these plans give effect to our strategies to improve the wellbeing of Hamiltonians. You’ll also be in charge of setting the standards for the development and delivery of corporate planning and reporting across the organisation.

If you think this sounds like you, you will need to have excellent programme management and planning skills and be able to take a range of stakeholders on the journey with you.  You will need to establish credibility quickly so experience in local government corporate planning is a must.

There’s no doubt it’s an exciting time for Hamilton.
