- Be the builders of change in the building system!
- Start solving some of the more complex issues within the building sector
- Provide advice to others who care just as deeply about NZ's building industry
Be part of the biggest reform of the building regulatory system in the last 15 years.
We are looking for an experienced professional with a well-developed understanding of the New Zealand building regulatory framework to help us create a better building sector - not only for those in the industry, but for all New Zealanders.
Play your part in shaping one of New Zealand's leading sectors that employs 250,000 workers and is set to contribute more than $41 billion to New Zealand's economy in 2023.
About the role
The Senior Advisor within the Determinations team will use their building sector knowledge to lead the development of determinations and take a lead role in the investigation of complaints against Building Consent Authorities.
This is your opportunity to step up and utilise your extensive building legislation knowledge to solve some complex issues and support compliance with building regulation. You'll be dealing with others who care just as deeply as you do about New Zealand's building industry to help them better understand the building code.
The Determinations team are customer-facing and provide their customers with binding decisions, guidance and clarity about the application of building legislation. Their customers include building owners, building consent authorities (e.g. local councils), agents for building owners (e.g. lawyers and consultants) and industry professionals (e.g. engineers).
You will be supported by a team of experienced senior advisors who work collaboratively to test and challenge your points of view. As a senior member of the team, you will contribute to best practice both from a technical and process perspective. You will also be given the chance to coach more junior members of the team as you work together on casework or projects.
Skills and experience for the role
- At least 5 years' experience in the building sector either in a regulatory role (e.g. at a Council) or as a practitioner
- Clearly explains the building regulatory framework to a non-technical audience both verbally and in written communications
- Enjoys providing outstanding customer service and has experience in a client facing role
- Successfully manages stakeholder relationships including customers and technical experts
- Analyses complex information and quickly identifies key issues
- Thrives in a demanding and complex environment with statutory timeframes
