Our friendly Consents and Compliance team is committed to enabling a sustainable future for Nelson. As the result of team members moving to new roles within our team, we have opportunities for a Planner to further develop their skills.   As a Unitary Authority, we process both district and regional resource consents, including subdivisions, land use, water discharge and coastal permits.  Working on a diverse range of application types will provide you with a very strong career platform.  Whether you have some experience under your belt and are seeking to broaden your expertise, or seeking to return to the workforce, or simply want to move to a terrific part of the country; this role can be tailored to your needs.


Your understanding of the Resource Management Act (RMA) and relevant tertiary qualification will get you started, and your ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines, coupled with your strong attention to detail and, customer focussed, positive attitude will ensure your success. Career pathway opportunities exist within the team and broadly across the Council, so there is plenty of scope to grow.  If you are committed to ongoing learning, this could be the role for you.


The hardworking consents team have a great range of experience, are always up for a shared morning tea and are willing to share their knowledge and work collaboratively to help others develop.  Across Council we have a friendly workplace culture which makes us an employer of choice for the top of the south region / Te Tau Ihu.
