Group Manager Strategy & Community


  • New role, new team, new you!
  • The best small rural council in Aotearoa!
  • Go home every day punching the air!

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 real cool stuff. You want to be part of that…go on, you know you want to!

Join us and live the dream. Well that’s Kev’s words anyway. He’s one of our awesome Water Operators. We don’t just want a leader. We want an inspirational leader. A fire-cracker. Someone with passion, spark, and energy.

We need you to be nimble – to be in the helicopter one day, and down at the coal-face the next. We want someone who is a people person, who will get out of the office and get round our beautiful district.

To go home punching the air in this role you will need to LOVE customers, LOVE communicating, LOVE libraries, LOVE the Long Term Plan, and most of all, LOVE the community.  

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
