Kapiti Coast District Council is looking for an enthusiastic and energetic Team Leader for our Resource Consents team. The Council is committed to building an organisation that is respected for its caring, dynamic and effective 'open for business' approach. As a diverse, friendly and supportive Council, this role offers a great opportunity for someone wanting to further their career leading a knowledgeable and innovative team of professionals responsible for resource consent processing.

With increasing population and financial growth, major expressway roading projects underway, and a diverse and dynamic coastal environment, now is a great time to be a leader in a team that assists in developing the district. Beautiful beaches and a short journey to Wellington make the Kapiti Coast a great place to live and work.

The consents team has strong focus on improving our practices so we're after someone who takes pride in their work, a passion for continuous improvement and has sound technical expertise in resource consents and RMA processes. With recent decisions issued on the Proposed District Plan, adaptability and being a good problem solver are essential skills required for the role. Incorporating technology, being efficient and effective and fostering relationships with customers are key focus areas for the consents team going forward, so demonstrated experience in these areas will be of benefit.

The right person for this position will thrive in a dynamic and progressive working environment and enjoy the challenge of managing people and getting the best of them. Your ability to work effectively across a wide range of issues and enable a customer-focussed environment is important to your success in the role. As part of the resource consents and compliance leadership group you will be responsible for empowering your team and providing direction through supportive coaching and mentoring.

The right candidate for this role has:

  • strong knowledge and understanding of the RMA, particularly resource consents
  • excellent communication skills
  • a demonstrated proactive and collaborative approach
  • a relevant tertiary qualification in resource management or planning, and
  • minimum of seven years' experience.

Enquiries about this position should be directed to Vijay Soma, Resource Consents and Compliance Manager on 04 296 4700 or free phone 0800 486 486.

Preferred candidates will have to undergo the usual pre-employment checks including a drug and alcohol screening test.

Please note you must be eligible to work in New Zealand.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
