Building Advisory Officers - Horowhenua District Council

We’re on a journey to take our region from good to great and having a lot of fun along the way. This is Council in the midst of a transformation journey driven by passion, pride and genuine aroha for our community. As we welcome on board our new Chief Executive, Monique Davidson, we look forward to great things ahead. Monique is considered a hugely capable leader who will lead us through change that firmly positions the council to navigate unprecedented growth that is around the corner!

Horowhenua is growing faster than predicted and this is expected to continue for the next twenty years. We anticipate we’ll need to double the number of houses built every year to accommodate new residents – to support this growth, we need a future-focused Building Officers to join our Consents team and play a key role in helping our region go from good to great.
About the Role
Working closely with our diverse community, you’ll process building consent applications, inspect, and certify consented works. You’ll build solid relationships in the community as well as Council, taking a hands-on approach to problem-solving and guiding applicants through the consent process. Your days will be split between site visits and the office, with scheduled time for processing applications and completing inspections.

Part of a tight-knit team of Building Advisory Officers and cadets, you will report to Megan Leyland, the Consents Manager, an inclusive leader who started with Council over 10 years ago and has worked her way through a variety of roles, getting to know the ins and outs of how things are done here (and becoming a pretty good case study for the career progression opportunities available). We’re a diverse, sociable bunch who get on well and take real pride in our mahi.

About You
As a core member of the Consents team, you’ll bring a positive and customer-focused approach to inspection work and are keen to get stuck in. You will have proven building control knowledge and the qualifications to back it up (a qualification listed under Regulation 18 of the building (Accreditation of Building Consent Authorities) Regulations 2006 is required).

A strong communicator with sound knowledge of the Building Act, Building Regulations, Building Code, and inspection/consent process, you’re comfortable reading and interpreting design plans and specifications and have comprehensive knowledge of construction principles and practices. Your keen eye for detail means you have a diligent work approach and you take real pride in getting things right the first time.

So, what’s in it for you?
Along with continuous development and opportunities for future growth, you will enjoy a competitive salary and stable role within a thriving Council where the culture is great, innovation is ongoing, and your work has a genuine impact on the positive growth of the community. We also want you to be able to juggle successfully both work and home life – we get it! Modern life is busy enough, right? So, we offer a flexible work program that we think will be attractive to you!

We’re reviewing applications as they come in, so if a Levin lifestyle sounds like a bit of you please apply now by clicking the Apply button, or for more information contact Adam Miller on Mobile 0272 414 798.

    Architecture is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements. The term architecture is also used metaphorically to refer to the design of organizations, software, and other abstract concepts. Construction is the process of constructing a building or infrastructure. Construction differs from manufacturing in that manufacturing typically involves mass production of similar items without a designated purchaser, while construction typically takes place on location for a known client. Construction as an industry comprises six to nine percent of the gross domestic product of developed countries. Construction starts with planning, design, and financing; and continues until the project is built and ready for use.
