He angitūtanga: The opportunity


Community Facilities (CF) provides world-class open space and building facilities that are fit for purpose, financially considered and deliver on Auckland's expectations and aspirations. As kaitiaki (guardian) of facilities, we have an important role in facilitating the wider social, economic, environmental and cultural outcomes that promote the wellbeing of our communities. The Contracts & Supplier Management Unit of CF supports and provides high quality contract management services for contracted suppliers through effective procurement, establishing performance management measures, auditing process development and contract performance improvement. This unit delivers on energy management and sustainability outcomes for CF and the wider corporate operations of Auckland Council (AC).

Reporting to the Manager - Audit Team, this role involves conducting physical audits to ensure the quality of maintenance being delivered by CF maintenance contracts, valued at $120M per year. The Audit Lead will visit assets (both open space and built) that are owned and maintained by CF and carry out audits that are robust and technically accurate. These audits will help to ensure that contractors are operating at a sufficiently high standard and will contribute to key performance indicators used by contract managers.
