Do you like working collaboratively on a wide range of matters across teams that will make a difference to our community?
New Plymouth District Council plays a key role in supporting community well-being, the economy, the environment and the overall quality of life in the New Plymouth District. To fulfil that role we need great people on board, and right now we are looking for a highly motivated and experienced lawyer to join our Risk, Legal and Assurance team. While we prefer full-time applicants we will consider part-time availability.
Our vision is to build a sustainable lifestyle capital, and being part of our team means you will help to make our district a better place to live and to work. The successful candidate will be familiar with a range of commercial, regulatory, and enforcement matters, and be able to provide practical advice and review of legal documents. They will work on various matters to assist Council staff to manage their legal risks and maintain compliance with legislative requirements. Ideally the successful candidate will have experience practising in a local government environment but this is not a pre-requisite.
At Council we aim to create and sustain a truly rewarding workplace environment for our staff. We have put together an integrated Total Rewards Framework that spans Wellbeing, Development, Benefits, Culture and Recognition. The Framework provides a range of opportunities and benefits to our staff. We embrace diversity and have a culture that is built on trust and respect. We offer flexible working (where available) and you get to work with a team of dedicated experts who share a passion for making a difference.
If you're looking for your next career opportunity, in a role that will be varied and provide plenty of scope for growth, we would love to hear from you!
