Richmond, New Zealand

Reference: 5201843

  • Do you want a job where you will add value every day?
  • Do you want to take a meaningful part in shaping our communities and environment for the benefit of future generations?

The Tasman region is thriving and this is a fabulous opportunity to join our team to assist us in our resource consenting role as a Unitary Authority. This position is unique in the fact that it has a defined scope of subdivision consenting work, which will focus on processing Section 223 and 224 applications and updating Council's property records, as well as assigned subdivision consent applications and Right-of-way approvals.

Our ideal candidate will be team orientated, self-motivated, analytical and customer-focused. You may come to us an Assistant Planner looking for a next step up, or as an experienced Legal Executive, Planner or Surveyor wanting a change of pace and the benefits of a distinct scope of work.

You'll have a diploma in planning, resource or environmental management, or associated field and be familiar with the RMA and consent processing and compliance requirements. Experience with Landonline for subdivision approvals would also be an advantage.

This is a permanent full-time role, however, we are open to considering a variation of working hours for the right person.

In return, we will offer ongoing professional development, a stable but flexible working environment, plenty of collegial support, and a benefits package to suit your personal preferences.
