Roading Manager


Permanent Full Time

Based in Otorohanga, a rural community approximately 50 kilometres south of Hamilton, that offers affordable housing and easy access to services.  It is a potential opportunity to escape the ‘rat race’ of some larger centres.

Reporting to Council’s Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for overseeing the construction, maintenance and operation of 805 kilometres of local roads within the district, of which 70% are sealed.

Applicants must have:

  • significant knowledge and experience of road construction and maintenance

  • the ability to effectively direct and manage roading contractors who carry out the physical works

  • strong people management skills.

This role requires:

  • effective management of Council staff engaged in associated design, contract management and administrative works

  • capability to manage all aspects of roading works including design, consultation, and the preparation, awarding and management of contracts.

Whilst many of the necessary skills may have been gained in a contracting environment, complementary experience in local government or consulting is desirable to provide the breadth of capability being sought.
