Job Ref:  13222
Employer:  Christchurch City Council
Job Type:  Fixed Term 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.

Joining the team for a fixed term period of up to six months, 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.

Coming on board during crucial peak-season, 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 will be the same, with a busy schedule and demanding 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 and providing assistance where required for the use of our brand-new My Council CSR platform. 

You will be an outgoing, high achiever who is prepared to step in and utilise your leadership capability. 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.

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. 

Even though this is a short term opportunity, 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. With some time spent on the field, we encourage you to identify opportunities for improvement 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.
