He angitūtanga: The opportunity


At Auckland Council, we are redeveloping our intranet Kotahi to make the most of our size and scale with a fit for purpose tool that connects our complex and diverse organisation and empowers our people to do their best work. This is a rare opportunity for a Change Manager to join our highly motivated project team.

Your role as Change Manager will be to design, develop and deliver change management activities to support the Kotahi Upgrade project while maximising employee adoption of, and minimising resistance to, new ways of operating. Working closely with the Project Manager and Kotahi Lead, you will be the bridge between the project team and Kotahi’s end users. In short, you will provide the project workstream leads, sponsor and business/benefits owner with the tools, coaching and support required to make the refreshed Kotahi a success.

Additionally, appreciation for the complexity of working in a political and high-profile environment is vital. If you are driven and passionate about delivering to a high standard we want to hear from you.
