Waste Minimisation Advisor / Kaitohutohu Whakamahi Tukurua

Porirua's changing. Thanks to new housing developments, large scale regeneration projects and new transport links, it's rapidly growing into a diverse, well-connected city with big opportunities. With all that in mind, Porirua City Council is rejuvenating and expanding to prepare for its future growth and continue to develop a resilient, liveable city for our future generations.

We need an experienced waste minimisation advisor in our team who can own and embrace change as we get ready to think and work differently. You'll be a straight thinker and a resilient type who can foresee potential issues and challenges. We need smart people who are innovative and want to make things better. If you understand how to work with businesses and communities in delivering waste minimisation programmes, your engagement and leadership skills are just what we need.

You'll be energetic and excellent at getting other people on board with your ideas and sharing your enthusiasm for waste minimisation. You will need an understanding of working with communities and how to deliver programmes to help facilitate behaviour change. You will know how to prepare sound operational policy, manage contracts and have highly developed writing skills.

With huge changes from central government on how waste management and minimisation is to be delivered, now is the time for us to rethink our approach to waste minimisation. Our team is leading the charge, developing a new Resource Recovery Network including a Construction and Demolition facility, an Organics Processing facility and a Resource Recovery Park. We now need to turn our attention to community behaviour change - which is where you come in.

This is the kind of opportunity that might only come along once in a career. It could be a complete game-changer for you; you'll be directly shaping the direction of Porirua's resource recovery tools, infrastructure and behaviour change programmes for generations to come, and with your energy and drive you could do great things.

Experience the good life at Porirua City Council

Life is good here at the council, and you'll soon learn why. You'll be welcomed into a warm, fun team that genuinely values input and empowers you to make things happen. You'll be able to voice your ideas, and then actually see them take shape. You'll work alongside dedicated diverse teams and work for a city where things are happening. To top it off, the harbour and bush are at your doorstep; it's the perfect place to work. So, why wait? Now is truly the time to make the move.
