Waikato Regional Council

Closing Date : 26 Jan 2020

We want more good people to come and do great things with us.

We love where we live. That’s why we work so hard to look after our region and the people who live and work in the Waikato region.

Our work is as diverse as the region we care for; from the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu. We’ve got ambitious goals and there are some tricky issues, but that’s what makes it so interesting.

Do you want to help make a difference for iwi and Māori in our region? 

We have a great opportunity for a skilled and experienced kaiāwhina (assistant) in our Community and Services Directorate. As part of the Tai-ranga-whenua team, you will work to grow, enhance and improve Waikato Regional Council's capability, systems and processes that contribute to its strategic goals of working with iwi Māori. 

This role leads strategy development for, and delivery of, cross-cultural educational programmes for Waikato Regional Council. 

You will also work with council and iwi partners to support their capability building to fulfil their co-governance aspirations. This position will contribute to systems and processes that assist iwi Māori-focused policy development and integration in a co-management context. 

You will have proven project management leadership experience and successful experience in learning and development capability building programmes. You will also have been successful in building relationships with internal and external stakeholders. 

It goes without saying that this role requires an excellent organiser and communicator. 

Fluency in te reo Māori, applied experience in kawa, tikanga ā-iwi and mātauranga Māori is desirable as is experience with local government.
