Do you have an interest in local government and the democratic process? Are you an organised person?

At Kaipara District Council we have a new Governance Advisor opportunity. Based in Dargaville with travel across Kaipara, this role will see the successful applicant support our governance processes, including the conduct of Council and Committee meetings.

You will enjoy organising and coordinating meetings, along with preparing agendas, minutes and correspondence that relates.
