Waipa District Council has a reputation for being the 'Home of Champions' - and with good reason. Look back over the past ten years at how our district has flourished into a central North-Island hub for people to live, work, and play. The next ten years are going to be just as busy, with significant growth and future-proofing projects occurring district-wide. With growth comes opportunities, and we have a rare opportunity for a Principal Engineer - Growth to join our team.

We recognize that the growth of our district is important. As our Principal Engineer - Growth you will provide strategic and technical engineering advice to ensure that Council and community infrastructure is integrated and coordinated with development projects as well as ensuring that infrastructure funding and growth plans are available to support this growth. As a senior advisor to our Group Manager Growth and Regulatory Services, your recommendations will shape the future of our District.

You will be highly motivated and collaborative with the ability to think strategically and apply your technical engineering knowledge to identify and drive a coordinated approach to the provision of infrastructure and development. Working closely with our executive team and elected members you will be politically astute with an appreciation and understanding of Local Government. You will have exceptional communication skills, both oral and written, that showcase your ability to liaise at all levels and across a diverse audience.

If you would like to join a progressive forward-thinking Council, working together to achieve our communities aspirations we would love to hear from you.
