Dunedin City Council has set a clear vision for Dunedin to be “One of the World’s Great Small Cities”.  This is focused on fostering a city with a thriving economy and a healthy environment with an active, creative, resilient and vibrant community.  The City of Dunedin is one of New Zealand’s progressive urban centres with a population of 127,000.  Renowned for its outstanding quality of life, heritage buildings and international reputation as a centre for tertiary education, it also has strengths in the primary sector, engineering and tourism.

As a key component in achieving its vision and commitment to the community, Council has committed to a significant programme of investment with both its extensive existing property portfolio and key new facilities.  This investment by Council led to a revised structure for the Property Services Team and the creation of a number of new roles, representing an exciting opportunity and not business as usual!

Candidates of interest will be tertiary qualified with a minimum of five years’ experience in building/facilities or an asset analysis role, and ideally possess skills in developing master maintenance plans.  You will also have strong communication skills with the ability to articulate technical information to non-technical audiences.

This represents a unique and exciting career opportunity for a facilities professional to make a difference for the community and build a legacy for the future of Dunedin.
