Napier City Council is amid an exciting period of positive change. This is reflecting in the level and scope of renewal and new build projects that are occurring across the city. Excellence in engineering design and project management sits at the heart of Napier's ongoing development.

Reporting to Director of Infrastructure, as Manager of Design and Projects you will be responsible for the day to day management and strategic leadership of a busy team working across an established project management office. Your remit will be to oversee the design and delivery of capital projects across the council. There are some significant projects on the horizon, and many already underway. Your brief will be to ensure integrated project planning, development, implementation of design and delivery strategies and programmes which will run right across Council.

This role has a strong focus on transformational leadership and project delivery. You will need to be able to demonstrate a relevant project management experience. You will need to show strengths in managing and leading a design team, and an ability to relate across roading, three waters and building development. A key competency will be your ability to run an integrated programme of council design projects, and you will be adept in producing and working with strong project management principles. In terms of personal and leadership qualities, we need someone who embraces challenge, has high levels of accountability, and has a collaborative approach with your stakeholders, at all levels. Relevant engineering qualifications will be highly regarded, and CPENG would be the icing on the cake.

If you have the relevant infrastructure design and project management experience and the leadership qualities to perform in this role then we would love to hear from you.
