Location: Auckland Wide, NZ, 1010

Company: Auckland Council

  • Showcase your skills in building and structures asset assessment
  • Work to ensure that our facilities are the standard setters across the Asia-Pacific region


He angitūtanga: The opportunity
Community Facilities (CF) is committed to making great places Aucklanders love while supporting a number of related services such as asset management and renewals of existing structures and open areas. Committed to a lifecycle approach to asset management, we work to build, maintain and renew our world class community buildings and public spaces including parks, walkways, libraries and leisure centres. As kaitiaki (guardian) of Auckland Council facilities, we play a vital role in promoting the wellbeing of our communities while also delivering strategically significant programmes. 
We have an opportunity for you which will allow you to assist in strengthening our ability to deliver the best Auckland we can for our residents, ratepayers and visitors. As our Senior Asset Assessor, you’ll be part of a team that works across the council to put together condition data, costings and investment feasibility for acquisitions, renewal or disposals. 


You’ll mentor our more junior team members and assess and make decisions 'on the spot' in terms of construction and structural and civil engineering matters. This might include closing an area down if necessary or taking remedial action on any assets that are less effective or require further attention. Supporting your team manager in conducting an impartial and objective analysis of the Community Facilities buildings and structures portfolio will help to determine technical performance, condition, compliance, efficiency and useful service life expectancy. 


Providing assistance in ascertaining the criticality of an asset’s integrity in relation to the required service provided - often identifying both future state opportunities and immediate interventions – will be key. Finally, you will work to ensure that our facilities are the standard setters across the Asia-Pacific region.
He kōrero mōu: About you
As the preferred candidate for this role, you’ll be tertiary qualified in structural or civil engineering and/or building surveying along with experience in assessing infrastructure and building assets. Together with extensive asset management experience, you will have proficiency in information systems relating to GIS and asset data management. Experience working in an asset intensive industry will be required in order for you to understand the complexities of the field asset surveys that you will be regularly conducting. 
Ngā āhuatanga kei a mātou: What we offer
We will offer you a career enhancing opportunity, competitive remuneration and to be part of Auckland’s meaningful history. At the forefront of our community development, you will be given the opportunity to guide the team toward being dynamic and passionate about what CF does. You will play a crucial role, not only in CF but across Auckland Council. Working 40 hours per week Monday to Friday, you will have some flexibility with how those hours are set. 
If you are high performing, passionate about Auckland and the world around you and would like the chance to lead in making tangible and visible improvements to our environment, then join us. Apply today (telling us why you are interested in and right for this opportunity) by cover letter along with your CV. 


You will be required to have a valid NZ driver's licence due to the nature of the position where you will be required to regularly travel to various Community Facility sites across the Auckland region.
This role is deemed safety sensitive and, in line with Auckland Council policy, you will be required to complete pre-employment drug & alcohol testing.
