Executive Manager - Strategy

Tararua offers you the country lifestyle you have always dreamed of.  Take advantage of adventure, scenic attractions and country hospitality at its best!  If you are keen on tramping, hunting, fishing or canoeing you will be spoilt for choice.  All the facilities are nearby; swimming pools, gyms, tennis courts and championship golf courses. The Tararua District provides an enviable lifestyle and work location.

Are you a visionary and strategist with significant policy and planning experience?  We’re looking for someone to join our Council team based in Dannevirke as an Executive Manager – Strategy.  As a member of our Executive Leadership Team, you will help guide the development of visions and strategies for our Council and communities.  You’ll be required to engage with a wide range of stakeholders and build strong relationships with our Elected Members and local Iwi.  While you’ll need to be able to think big picture, but you’ll be equally as ease digesting the details of policies and Central Government funding opportunities.

This is fantastic opportunity to have genuine input into the strategic direction of a district that is, and will continue, to experience strong growth.

If you possess the right skills and experience, we would love to hear from you!
