Are you looking to have a meaningful and direct impact through your work, plus to restore work-life balance and have the time and energy to do what you love outside of work?

This position may enable you to do both!  Join a forward-thinking Council that is leading the way with its integrated infrastructure planning. Plus enjoy the coastal and mountain environment, quality and affordability of houses, and the cafes, art scene and events calendar that make New Plymouth an excellent place to live. 

New Plymouth District Council’s vision is to build a lifestyle capital by putting people first, caring for our place and supporting a prosperous community. Key to achieving this vision is having a well-functioning multi-modal transport network that meets the current and future requirements of the district. That’s where you come in!  

We’re looking for an experienced Transport Planner to contribute to the strategic planning of the district’s transport infrastructure.  You will bring a tertiary qualification in Transportation Planning, Engineering or a related field (eg., Geography, Urban Planning) and 7+ years of related experience, including in any of the areas below:

  • Strategic transport planning
  • Multi-modal transportation
  • Urban transport & streetscape strategies
  • Interpretation of transport & traffic models
  • Integrated transport assessment, land use & development planning
  • Project identification & prioritisation, business case preparation
