Tauranga is on a journey to become a talented and innovative city full of opportunity, a city with heart and soul; and a city of great spaces, places and environments.

In this key role you will lead a team of Corporate Solicitors & Risk and Procurement Specialists to provide outcome-focused commercial advice to Commissioners, the Executive Team and the broader organisation.
A key focus will be the development, management and delivery of an effective and sustainable organisational risk framework; and the management of a robust audit programme, legal services framework and associated policies. You may represent Tauranga City Council at formal and informal mediations and negotiations.
This is a fantastic opportunity to bring your outstanding leadership capability to this high performing, collaborative and supportive team. You will be someone who thrives on the opportunity to lead and influence in a diverse setting, building relationships and working with key stakeholders across the organisation on a broad range of matters.
To thrive in this role, you will have/be:
- Strong leadership skills at senior management level

- Strong experience supporting decision making and governance through designing, forming and implementing appropriate frameworks and processes
- Demonstrated experience working with a diverse and complex range of stakeholder groups
