Planning Officer

Located in the heart of the beautiful Wairarapa valley, the Carterton District is growing rapidly! We’ve got big plans – from the town centre regeneration to a large urban growth development, Carterton is buzzing. And our Council is at the forefront of this success!

We are offering a fantastic opportunity for a qualified planning professional who is up for the challenge of working in an exciting period of growth. Our small, but perfectly formed Planning Team, works across the whole range of planning and consenting activities so you’ll need to be an adept juggler who enjoys a wide variety of work.

You will hold a tertiary qualification in planning, resource management, or a related field, and be a highly motivated team player with a positive attitude and excellent communications skills. You will thrive on working in a fast-paced environment, and be able to perform well under pressure to meet deadlines. Importantly, you will be innovative with an ability to think outside the square while maintaining a strong attention to detail and awareness of the current planning and legislative developments.

As well as offering a lower cost of living in Wairarapa, our people enjoy a great team environment with additional benefits such as flexible working arrangements, 5 weeks annual leave, Kiwisaver contributions of up to 6%, and professional development opportunities.
