Job Ref:  12804
Employer:  Christchurch City Council
Job Type:  Permanent Full Time
Christchurch Central, Christchurch, New Zealand (Show on map)

The Parks Unit within Christchurch City Council has a clear focus on helping Christchurch maintain the iconic Garden City image that makes it such a great place to live, work and visit. We are out there every day, ensuring our spectacular garden parks and inner city green spaces are maintained to a high standard.

Your Impact:

As Parks Advisor, you will be the face of the Council parks management team and will perform a pivotal role in ensuring the levels of service provided are fit for purpose for the enjoyment and use of our communities.

You will be responsible for fielding all manner of maintenance requests for service relating to the upkeep, development and usage activities of city parks and assets, delegating your area requests to your team of rangers and contractors. No two days are the same, with a busy schedule and workload that varies from job to job so your ability and discretion to ensure the right jobs are sent to the right person at the right time is crucial.

You will be a people person, able to relate at all levels of the community and within your team. You have an optimistic outlook, with the flexibility to be involved in board meetings outside of normal working hours. 

The formal stuff:

We welcome applications from any industry, as ultimately we seek to recruit an outgoing, high achiever who is ready to continue to demonstrate their leadership capability. With credibility comes confidence, and you will be comfortable leading challenging meetings with various interested parties and community groups, both internal and external to the organisation. With all of this comes the capability to remain rational and impartial.

We're looking for someone who can take on everything that comes their way and who can self-manage, influence people at all levels and adapt to the forever changing needs of the organisation.

You will have a focus on accuracy, as you will be required to complete daily recording of tasks, completion of maintenance requests and hazard identification/risk assessment documentation. 

The fun stuff:

In return we offer the chance to make a real difference to the city that you live in by providing leadership and guidance to the team who are doing great things for our community. Receive the autonomy to really make this role your own, with some time spent on the field that can be used to identify opportunities for improvement and changes which you have the influence to make a reality.

We are a small, supportive team who are passionate about what we do. Join us and share the passion.
