Advisor (Infrastructure Strategy) - Relocate to New Zealand

He angitūtanga: The opportunity

Investment in infrastructure has long-term consequences for Auckland's future, and will shape how well Auckland functions for future generations. Decisions on the future of Auckland’s infrastructure are city-shaping, long-lasting and expensive, requiring careful and thorough consideration.

A new Infrastructure Strategy team is being established to provide advice on how to ensure the investment into Auckland’s infrastructure will underpin Auckland Council’s broader city goals such as ensuring the efficient integration of land use and transport infrastructure, reducing environmental degradation and enabling greater economic prosperity.

This is an intermediate level strategic role, where your analytical nature and strategic research skills will contribute to the development of infrastructure strategy and long-term infrastructure planning.  Be part of a team who provide strategic, compelling advice to the Mayor, councillors and the senior managers on a range of matters relating to Auckland’s infrastructure needs and investment. The team will also lead discussion on Auckland’s infrastructure needs both within council and with its partners.

He kōrero mōu: About you

You may have worked for central or local government bodies, utility or energy companies, or organisations with significant investment in asset management.  You are able to demonstrate skills in policy, analysis and research, and you are now looking at the next step in your career to hone your strategic skills.  Skills in infrastructure planning or asset management would be an advantage.  You may even be a recent graduate in a relevant field, but through your wider experience and academic background, you will be able to demonstrate the strategic nous which will make you successful in this role.  You have expansive interests, are able to quickly grasp unfamiliar topics and can draw connections between seemingly disparate ideas.  You are a polished writer, a natural communicator with excellent interpersonal skills, enabling you to quickly build strong relationships across the organisation.

Ngā āhuatanga kei a mātou: What we offer

This a rare, career-definining opportunity for you to work alongside, and learn from strategic professionals who tackle issues that really make a difference to the people of Auckland.  Being part of a division that aspires to be recognised as a centre of excellence in the provision of strategic advice will bode well for your future.

If you think you have the requisite experience and skills to fulfil this role, we encourage you to request a copy of the position description from Shar Mahon on +64-27-769-1880 or shar.mahon@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz Please do include a cover letter in your application conveying why you are interested in these opportunities and the relevant skills you have to offer.
