Team Leader - Building Consents
Te Tai o Aorere is a place that has always been highly sought after. Desired by iwi for its natural resources, while European explorers spotted its potential too, and over time they were followed by the artisans, creatives and entrepreneurs, all those who embody the spirit of the district today. The popularity of our region continues with our local economy largely invested in residential and commercial development, and providing for future growth.
The Tasman District Council is an accredited Building Consent Authority, responsible for processing around 1400 building consents annually. We have a busy work programme over the next few years, and this is a premium opportunity for an experienced individual to continue to shape and develop a team of 9 Building Consents staff.
This is a senior specialist position, however you will also demonstrate your capabilities as positive and supportive leader, your ability to coach, and develop others with varying levels of experience is vitally important. We have a highly colloborative and dedicated 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 Surveying. With lots still to achieve you will be highly influential in setting the future direction of the consent processing team, and in doing so combining a lifestyle that others will envy, with a challenging and rewarding career.
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 to our ratepayers and other stakeholders.
