The Otorohanga District is currently entering a growth phase, presenting some excellent opportunities for the District. The Otorohanga District Council wishes to optimise its services and engagement with the community to ensure that the greatest possible benefit is obtained from these opportunities, and therefore has created a new role of Organisation and Community Development Manager.

The primary functions of this role are to:

* improve the systems and processes of Council

* enhance our internal and external relationships

* facilitate the economic and social development of our community.

To excel in this role, you will have a high level of initiative, confidence and organisation and be extremely effective in communicating in all forms and at all levels. You will be a strategic thinker with a passion for community engagement and economic development, and have a high level of credibility amongst a variety of parties who can constructively engage in pursuit of advancing our community. 

A sound understanding of the broad range of activities conducted by local authorities, and the associated processes of Council at both operational and governance levels is necessary, and as such some significant relevant local government experience is essential.
