Oamaru, New Zealand. Posted: 2020-03-02

Life's good in Waitaki. Big enough for some alone time yet small enough to care, if you lived here you could climb a mountain, look up at a sky full of stars, earn heaps and spend an average of two minutes a day commuting. House prices are low compared to the rest of the country and the work life balance is tipped in the life direction.

We need experienced Planners to assist our small but busy Planning team. It's a job with plenty of variety, room for career progression. You'll get to do a bit of everything including heritage, urban design, landscape and biodiversity. In addition to handling a variety of activities we're looking for help in expanding our current systems and practices to ensure greater consistency and communication.
