  • Get your work/life balance back
  • Building background
  • Broaden your horizons

Are you looking for a role in the building industry which uses your technical knowledge and expertise, and offers you opportunities to grow and develop your skills, as well as a more balanced lifestyle? Perhaps you’re ready for a change, seeking more variety or want to extend your career longer?

Flexibility and options: As a result of an internal promotion we are seeking an experienced Building Officer/Inspector to join our team on a full-time permanent basis. In return, we offer you the opportunity to get involved in many interesting projects; from inspecting the new airport terminal building, through to temporary structures such as circus marquees and extra stands for All Blacks games. While it is a busy role, we work business hours (Monday to Friday only), so this is your chance to get your weekends and evenings back, and achieve a better balance in your life.

Use your broad skill set: We are seeking your proven skills and experience in inspecting buildings, together with a good understanding of building design, construction, regulations and a relevant qualification. You also need a positive and professional approach to customer service, enjoy building great working relationships, be computer literate, with good physical fitness and a full drivers licence. We have a continuous learning culture where we provide opportunities to achieve technical qualifications, and we support and encourage you to extend and develop your skills further.

Lifestyle and enjoyment: As a team we work hard, and to relax and unwind you’ll find us catching up with our workmates across Council, for a competitive game of pool. We believe in work/life balance, so you can enjoy all that the Nelson region has to offer.

About us: “Working together to make Nelson an even better place.”

Nelson City Council is an organisation filled with supportive people who love this beautiful city of ours. It’s an exciting time to live, work and play in Nelson, as the city continues to grow and thrive. We have amazing weather and gorgeous natural environment to play in, and our city always has something going on. From major events or just a general buzz in town, it’s a great place for all ages.

Applications close: Midnight Sunday 9 December 2018.
