Team Leader - Building Consents

Richmond, New Zealand

Reference: 5335163

Our Building Assurance team are proud contributors to the growth of our community. We put all our energies into providing peace of mind through the delivery of building consent and inspection services across the Tasman District. Our focus is on developing a progressive Building Consent Authority with great people, great attitude and great tools. We like to challenge ourselves to do better - in everything we do.

We are looking to build on our existing strengths and are on the hunt for the right person to take over the leadership of our Building Consents team responsible for processing around 1800 consents annually.

In this senior specialist position, you'll be leading your capable team of 9 by developing and motivating them using your proven leadership skills. As a positive team leader, your ability to coach, supervise, mentor and develop the Building Consents team is vitally important. This is a productive processing team who last year were recognised as the leading BCA in NZ for their collective outcome in their first year's Regulation 18 Diploma - Building Survey, and with lots to achieve in a rapidly growing District - you will lead the way!

You'll bring to the role a robust knowledge and understanding of relevant building legislation, and a demonstrated ability to develop high performing teams. You will also have a strong focus on delivering exceptional customer service.

Climate and lifestyle are some of the major factors for people choosing to live and work in the Tasman District. If you love the great outdoors, the Tasman District provides plenty of action, great wines and food, and a beautiful coastline.

We also promise you a great collegial environment and active interest from the Council and community stakeholders in Tasman in dealing with a variety of building control issues. If your skills and knowledge match to this role, then apply now.
