Group Manager Engineering & Assets

  • We are growing!
  • We are building things!
  • We are the best small rural council in Aotearoa!


Roger is leaving us. After eight years he has decided he wants to be closer to his family. So we need someone to fill his shoes (and they are big shoes to fill!).

We are growing, developing and changing. We have exciting things happening in our district and we have been given the green light by our community and council to do some really cool stuff. Some of the cool stuff is in the Engineering & Assets Group, and we need a real leader to help us map out how it’s all going to fit together.

Join us and live the dream. Well that’s Kev’s words anyway. He’s one of our awesome Water Operators. For Kev’s team, and the rest of the Engineering & Assets Group, to nail their jobs, we need someone who can lead us through a period of immense change, with a strong vision, clarity of thought and a soft heart.

We need you to be nimble - we want someone who can front a Council meeting one day, and then throw on some work boots and a hi-vis vest and get out and around our district the next.

We’re a passionate team with a commitment to each other and to our community to be kind, be innovative and be accountable.

If that’s your way of working, we reckon that you could make a significant contribution to our team and our district and in return we think we can add squillions of achievements to your CV.

So are you keen? C’mon, what have you got to lose?

To top it off we can lure you with:

  • Big bucks
  • A realistic work-life balance
  • No traffic lights or parking meters
  • The choice of mountain biking or surfing in the weekends
