Policy and Planning Support

At the Otago Regional Council, our mission is to support the sustainable management of our environment. We’ve recently made some transformational changes within our organisation, enabling us to focus on how we work together to be sure we can deliver on our promises and continually improve how we serve our communities. We’re not overstating when we say we have some big targets to reach, and now we need the right people, in the right roles, to help us to get there.

The Opportunity

ORC is currently seeking a motivated and enthusiastic individual to take on the role of Policy and Planning Support. This role includes the provision of project and technical support services as well as general administrative activities to help enable this important function of the council to deliver organisational objectives.

About You

So, enough about us, what do we need from you? We need you to be an excellent communicator, both orally and written, with a minimum of two years’ experience working within a group of people in a similar role. Ideally you will also have worked in a political environment, have a general knowledge and ability to read and understand legislation and would have had some exposure to the Resource Management Act (1991).

Think you can tick all those boxes? We just have a couple more to go: we’d like to hear from you if you believe you can deliver a great service across a broad remit of potential activities from providing support for workshops and other, similar, forums to when required, facilitating those projects. You’ll be able to think critically, be resourceful and with those resources, be committed to the best possible outcome for our customers both internal and external.

So, why ORC? Well, we think Otago is an amazing place – to live in, work in and to visit. At the Otago Regional Council, we’re proud to be working each day, together with our communities, to keep it that way for our future.

If you share this passion and can align your skills and experience to what we’ve outlined above, we would love to hear from you!
