About the organisation

At the Otago Regional Council (ORC), their mission is ‘for our future’. ORC is here to protect and enhance the environment and enable their communities to do the same. To be sure ORC can deliver on its responsibilities, they are evolving as an organisation, and they’re not overstating when they say they have some really big targets to reach. ORC need the right people, in the right roles, to help them get there. 

The Environmental Monitoring Team is a core function at ORC, providing vital information to other parts of the organisation and customers to support the management of Otago’s natural resources. An  exciting opportunity now exists for a highly capable network management and maintenance professional to join ORC. Could this be you? 

About the opportunity

Reporting to the Manager Environmental Monitoring, your primary purpose is to manage the planning, delivery and maintenance of Otago Regional Council’s environmental monitoring network – ensuring that the assets are fully functioning so that data can be collected and reliably used for everyday decision making and to assist ORC in making long-term decisions. In doing this, the Network Infrastructure Lead will: 

  • Lead the planning for the physical monitoring network - exploring innovative and strategic thinking to ensure achievement of objectives while championing ORC’s safety culture.
  • Manage maintenance, installation and renewal programmes for the environmental monitoring network - ensuring assets perform now and into the future.
  • Manage relevant supplier relationships - ensuring adherence to contract deliverables and safety compliance.
  • Work closely with the Team Leader Monitoring and wider Council teams to understand future requirements for the environmental monitoring network.
  • Be a champion for safety and wellbeing – actively supporting a culture of safe and responsible behaviours and attitudes. 

This is a critical role that requires a combination of technical talent and a strong understanding of asset management principles, to lead the current and future performance of the physical monitoring network. Interested? 

About you

To be successful in this role, you will bring a can-do attitude of planning for the future and delivering today. Everything you do will adhere to sound safety and risk management, financial management, project management and contract administration principles. Further, you will be a strong advocate for change and improvement. Knowledge of legislative requirements for health and safety and experience with environmental monitoring, will be key. As will your ability to build strong working relationships with a range of stakeholders – you’ll understand the benefits in connecting closely with your colleagues and the wider team. You’ll be known for being highly organised and will have a proven ability to prioritise tasks and work independently.
