Team Leader Regional Consents - Gisborne District Council

Reference Number: 227728

Location: Gisborne

“It’s time for your promotion”

What do we mean by, “It’s time for your promotion?” We know that most organisations are too slow to recognise that you have reached the next level of professional development – whether you are Graduate moving to Intermediate Planner, or Intermediate moving into Senior or Principal Planner.

Gisborne District Council (GDC) is wanting to recognise professional planners who are ready for the step up to the next level and can provide both the professional development, mentoring and experience in the complexity of a Unitary Authority (both regional and district consenting together) to do so.

Matching the exceptional professional development opportunity is a warm staff environment which is genuinely values-led, a closeness of community and the everyday outdoors experience of the beach and bush to explore and grow a thriving family in. All this with low cost of living and just a quick and inexpensive direct flight to Auckland. Enjoy the best of both worlds in this area tagged by Government as a ‘surge region’ for its growth potential in the next decade.

GDC is genuine about attracting professionals who believe in its values of Piritahi Tairawhiti.  The council works in a ‘risk-based approach’ to planning and backs planning advice. You will be well suited to these roles if you have a strong values alignment, and are pragmatic and solutions-focused in work style. 

The Team Leader Regional Consents is a leadership role with 7-8 staff who are seeking a strong leader, a team player, a competent communicator tailoring their style and message to different groups, can develop excellence in the team’s professional and problem-solving skills, and has the personal resilience needed for this field.
