Manager - Asset Management Planning

Is asset management planning your bread and butter? Are you looking for an opportunity to transform the future of a growing city?

The city of Palmy is constantly growing and developing, living up to its vision of ‘small city benefits, big city ambition’. The asset and planning division is key to achieving this goal, being a centre of excellence for asset management and information intelligence. We’re looking for an experienced senior manager to head this critical team and lift asset management maturity across Council.

This is a role you can really make your mark on - you’ll drive the development and implementation of strategic asset management at the organisation level. You’ll have a long-term strategic view, working to ensure a coordinated approach that is sustained and integrated across Council. To succeed in this role, you’ll be skilled in analysing complex issues, and have a thorough knowledge of asset management as a business process, and how asset data on condition and performance is translated into business cases and programmes of work.

Your team is critical to developing the Infrastructure wide programme of works. You’ll have a tangible impact on the city, with your work in developing Asset Management Plans and informing the Long Term Plan and 30 year infrastructure strategy. As you can imagine, significant collaboration is required in this role, so you’ll have a history of building and maintaining relationships.

Palmerston North (or as we like to call it, Palmy) is a growing, innovative and exciting city. With small city benefits and big city ambition, Palmy has secured its place on the map as a creative and exciting city, with leading innovation and developments! We’re proud to be a city that includes, supports, connects and uses the talents of the whole community in our pursuit to provide a connected and safe community. We’re also a future-focused city who cares about enhancing our natural and built environment. Our future looks bright, it looks vibrant and progressive.

PNCC offers a wide range of benefits to the right candidate. If you’re looking for a role that has all the benefits of being in the regions, but allows you to influence city growth and a $2Bn asset portfolio – Apply today!

We are an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer and welcome applications from all those suitably qualified for this position.
