Resource Consents Planner

Permanent Full Time

  • Variety of work
  • Team culture a rare find
  • Make a real difference in Nelson

Are you an experienced Resource Consent Planner wanting to develop your portfolio? Nelson is experiencing rapid growth and high demand for residential land, so we are expanding our team.

Our team has a unique opportunity to process a range of notified and non-notified consents. These include waterfront and inner city apartments, comprehensive housing developments, water permits, air and coastal discharges with a significant and complex science component, hillside earthworks and subdivisions, as well as the more conventional resource consents.

The team culture is what makes this role even more attractive, and is a rare find. Within our team of 11, the sharing of knowledge and resources, and supporting each other to be successful are some of the elements we are proud of. The team structure and focus on development enables plenty of career progression. Finally, the shared morning tea shouts are enviable… if you like chocolate!

Bring your creativity as we are always looking for ways to improve what we do, to help ourselves and our customers.

A relevant qualification and familiarity with the Resource Management Act is required. It would be an advantage to have at least 2 years’ experience in a similar role, ideally in a Unitary Authority or both regional and district Councils.

You would be joining a team of people who are passionate about Nelson, and rightly so. Nelson is a desirable location whether you are wanting to play in the array of stunning beaches, a playground of mountain bike tracks and walkways, or just relax in them. It is a perfect city to balance a fulfilling career with a great lifestyle.

To help us make Nelson an even better place, apply now!
