Richmond, New Zealand

Reference: 5442506

Building and maintaining positive community partnerships is key to ensuring Council's success in delivering to the people of Tasman.

As a natural communicator, you will be responsible for creating and maintaining collaborative relationships with the community. You'll come to us with a range of relevant experience in natural or physical sciences, education or community development, and a good understanding of local government and its obligations with regard to community relationships.

You'll be relied upon to partner and support meaningful community relationships by providing events and programmes to support community development, environmental education, recreation, environmental initiatives and wellbeing.

This is a full-time position and ideally you'll have the confidence and connections to hit the ground running. Add to the mix your eye for detail, the ability to manage any number of projects at one time and a need to make a difference and this could be your ideal role.

Sound like you? Let's talk.
