We are seeking an entry-level town planner with a hunger to learn 'real-world' planning for land use, the future of our houses and our economy. You will be open-minded and ready to be part of a close team.

Make Amazing Happen!

We believe that sound and well-managed development creates opportunities for everyone. We are a close-knit team of town planning specialists working across all aspects of development and regulation for land use, subdivision and infrastructure projects.

As a graduate, you will have the chance to work with us, not only alongside like-minded professionals as they manage applications that shape and connect our cities and communities but also with your own portfolio of applications and matters to manage and show us your initiative, adaptability and drive for a successful career.

What are we looking for?

Excellent written and verbal communication skills

Demonstrated time management and organisational skills

A strong sense of commitment, a willingness to learn, and a desire to work in a dynamic deadline-driven environment

Qualifications of undertaking/completion of a tertiary degree in one of the following:

  • Bachelor of Urban or Environmental Planning
  • Diploma in Planning Studies
  • Masters in Planning

We pride ourselves on our ability to achieve results for our community and love the problem-solving and negotiation that come with our work. We love seeing developments, both big and small, be well-designed, incorporate neighbours, Council goals, the natural environment and Maori values. Success means having a small part in making good outcomes become a reality.

This role is fast-paced and varied, and yours to make your own.
