Risk Manager - Palmerston North City Council

Reference Number: 413642aa

Location: Palmerston North

Palmerston North is a vibrant, progressive and ambitious city. The city is experiencing growth in all sectors and competes with other regional centres amidst technological and demographic change for capital, talent and visitors.

Palmerston North City Council (PNCC) provides services to 90,000 residents, employing 600 staff across a broad range of functions. PNCC is leading a bold new vision for Palmerston North: small city benefits, big city ambition that will help the metro achieve its potential, capitalise on its strengths, and thrive in the future. To support its transformation, PNCC is currently seeking expressions of interest for the following unique career and lifestyle opportunity.

Reporting to the Chief Financial Officer, the Risk Manager will partner with the Executive Team to plan for, identify and mitigate risks connected with potential operational, financial, reputational, legal or regulatory risk for the Council. This role will lead the implementation of an enterprise-wide risk management framework and strengthen risk management capability across the organisation.

This role requires an ability to collaborate broadly with a range of internal stakeholders, leading by influence rather than via formal reporting lines. A commitment to continual risk assessment, relevant policy development and the provision of expert advice will ensure the position delivers a ‘best practice’ approach to risk management across PNCC.
