Recreation Planner / Pukenga Whakarite Rehia
Rotorua Lakes Council CLOSES 17th January

Position Description

At Rotorua Lakes Council we believe in doing things differently. Our organisation is all about innovation and creative solutions, working with the community to create a new way forward and progress our district’s shared vision and goals.

Vision2030, "The Rotorua Way" is the cornerstone of everything we do. In developing our vision for Rotorua we asked residents, visitors, workers and businesses, what kind of district they wanted. They told us – a vibrant city heart and a district that cares about the environment, has a strong economy, supports the arts and connects its people to each other and the rest of the world.    Ultimately everything we do is about making things better for our district and its residents, now and into the future.

This role will be responsible for developing strategies and policies to deliver outstanding places for recreation and sporting development that meet the needs of the community and partners for activated spaces that align with Council’s Vision 2030 opportunities.  You will lead the redevelopment of reserve management plans and levels of service as well as provide recreation and open space policy and Reserve Act advice.

Te Kaunihera o nga Roto o Rotorua (Rotorua Lakes Council) is committed to working in partnership with Te Arawa, our local iwi. We aspire to being a bicultural organisation and we value staff who speak te reo Maori, have an appreciation of Maori values, and a working knowledge of tikanga Maori.
