Resource Recovery Advisor / Kaitohutohu Whakamahi Tukurua


Porirua’s changing. Thanks to new housing developments, large scale regeneration projects and new transport links, it’s rapidly growing into a diverse, well-connected city with big opportunities. With all that in mind, Porirua City Council is rejuvenating and expanding to prepare for its future growth and continue to develop a resilient, liveable city for our future generations.

We need an experienced resource recovery advisor in our team who can own and embrace change as we get ready to think and work differently. You’ll be a straight thinker and a resilient type who can foresee potential issues and challenges. We need smart people who are innovative and want to make things better. If you understand how to work with businesses and communities in delivering commercial resource recovery programmes, your engagement and leadership skills are just what we need.

You’ll be energetic and excellent at getting other people on board with your ideas and sharing your enthusiasm for resource recovery. You will need an understanding of commercial realities in resource recovery and how to deliver programmes to help business. You will know how to prepare business cases, manage contracts and have and highly developed writing skills.

With huge changes from central government on how waste management and minimisation is to be delivered, now is the time for us to rethink our approach to resource recovery. Ideally, you’ll have relevant tertiary qualifications and you’ll bring experience in local government and waste management and minimsation.

This is the kind of opportunity that might only come along once in a career. It could be a complete game-changer for you; you’ll be directly shaping the direction of Porirua’s resource recovery tools and infrastructure for generations to come, and with your energy and drive you could do great things.
