Kaipara District Council

We are Kaipara District Council. A small, friendly team that operates in one of the most beautiful coastal townships in the country. We're not like other big councils where you might feel like a number. Everyone in our team is proud of their contribution to our mantra of making Kaipara a place where it's easy to live.

We have a rare and exciting opportunity for someone wanting to take the next step into a management role, as a Team Leader for Building Control in our regulatory services area.

You are preferably from a trade background - you understand the building industry and have experience in building control so it goes without saying that you understand the local regulations and standards. You'll have the ability to communicate with a wide range of people in the community and speak at all levels. You are great at conflict resolution, culturally sensitive and firm but fair. Importantly, you're ready to take the next step in your career, whilst making a difference in a proud community.

In this role, you'll be responsible for:
• Leading a team of building control officers
• Allocating work and conducting performance reviews
• Mentoring and training your team
• Responding to and resolving property related building complaints
• Negotiating solutions to resolve conflicts and complex problems
• Inspecting buildings to ensure that all works undertaken within the district are compliant
To succeed, you'll need relevant qualifications to New Zealand Trade Certificate level and several years' experience in a regulatory inspection role. Some leadership experience is also preferred, but not essential.

Making the move
If you're not a local, we said that it's easy to live here, and we weren't wrong: this is a great lifestyle in a scenic environment where the country meets the coast. If you're the right person for the role, we'll even offer relocation assistance, making this one career and lifestyle opportunity not to be missed.

In exchange for your hard work, you'll be rewarded with a competitive salary and opportunities to progress. We believe in innovation and continuous development, so if you're looking for a stepping stone to management, this is the place to excel.
An opportunity this good won't stay for long. If this sounds good, don't delay - apply now.
