Closing Date : 26 Apr 2019
We believe in doing things differently and to make a difference, we need a team player keen to be part of “the big picture” with a direct impact on the local community.
Our organisation is all about innovation and creative solutions, working with the community to create a new way forward and progress the Rotorua district’s shared vision and goals.
Our back yard is the mountain biking and tourism mecca of New Zealand with forest trails, a unique geothermal landscape, lakes, activities and attractions galore, excellent fishing, great events, good schools and great cafes and restaurants with beaches and ski fields nearby.
We think this is a pretty great place already and we’re working to make it even better.
We are looking for an experienced and professional individual with well-developed debt collection skills to join our busy Finance team. As one of 2 collection officers, you will be responsible for the management and collection of overdue rates and other debt owing to council.
As our ideal candidate you will have previous rates debt or general debt collection experience, although more essentially, a professional confident manner and exceptional interpersonal and communication skills with the right attitude. You will have an aptitude for figures, the ability to work under pressure while remaining calm, personable and positive. Good computer skills including proficiency with Excel, Word and database management are essential. It also goes without saying that you’ll be a demonstrated self-starter with the desire to show ownership and commitment to the job.
Te Kaunihera o nga Roto o Rotorua (Rotorua Lakes Council) is committed to working in partnership with Te Arawa, our local iwi. We aspire to being a bicultural organisation and we value staff who speak te reo Maori, have an appreciation of Maori values, and a working knowledge of tikanga Maori.
