Mō mātou - Our Organisation

At Kāinga Ora, ours is the important responsibility of transforming New Zealand's housing choices, outcomes and the entire housing sector by creating homes and communities that allow New Zealanders to thrive.

What is exciting about working for Kāinga Ora is getting the chance to make a real and positive impact on New Zealanders' lives. With skills, planning and purposeful action, our people are creating the homes and neighbourhoods that will build the future of Aotearoa.

We are passionate about transforming New Zealand for the better. That includes being a trusted partner for Māori and iwi, protecting and enabling their rights, interests and aspirations under the guidance of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Ko tā mātou mahi - Our Role

The Community Development Manager plays a key role in the property development process, facilitating and promoting strong, sustainable communities with a sense of place and belonging for our customers.

Kāinga Ora construction sites are supported by community development initiatives to help smooth the transition before, during and after completion. These initiatives are designed to encourage a sense of community, acceptance and integration, promote being a good neighbour and build partnerships with the community, people and organisations.

The Community Development Manager provides development management support to the Place-based group and regions. This role will focus on the community development initiatives as part of the build programme in view of protecting the long term social and asset value of our developments.

Ngā pūmanawatanga ōu - What you will bring

You'll have a wealth of experience in a community development role, with extensive experience in best practice engagement. An understanding of, or familiarity with, Asset-Based Community Development is highly desirable.
You'll be adept at working in diverse communities with a wide variety of stakeholders, balancing professionalism with a friendly, approachable and trustworthy manner when partnering with our tenants and the community.
Naturally, you'll have exceptional interpersonal, communication and networking skills, coupled with confidence in public speaking and presenting to internal and external stakeholders

As this role requires travelling around the local area and community (you will have access to a company vehicle), a current NZ driver's license is required.

Due to the nature of community engagement work, flexibility is also required including some evening and weekend work.

Nōu te rourou - What's in it for you?

We offer competitive salaries, five weeks' annual leave and a benefits package including a range of insurances, flexible working arrangements and career development. These benefits are described in more detail here . 

As a Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities employee, we want to make sure that you have all the tools and support you need. We want to ensure you are healthy and have work-life balance.

    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.
