A very rare opportunity has arisen for an experienced planner or urban designer who would like to work part time, two days per week.

In this role you will be a pivotal member of the design review panel meetings, focused on the approval of designs being proposed by developers and builders. The approval process is based on the application of Design Guidelines. Compliance with these guidelines and with planning requirements is overseen by the Design Review Panels.

This is an autonomous role based in Hobsonville where you will be administering teams of professionals and maintaining organised calm in a pressured environment.

The role will be expected to:

- Schedule DRP meetings for four panels
- Ensure panel members are supported with relevant information
- Ensure submissions are of an appropriate quality
- Assist with the drafting of DRP notes in response to applications
- Provide assistance with general design related tasks and projects as required

While this may appear on the surface to be quite an administrative role, it is far more than that, hence the planning or urban design background we are seeking.

You will be smart, driven and organised and have a good eye for design and what is good and bad, you will have an interest in landscape architecture or urban design and be able to ensure documentation and plans are of quality and provided to allow the panels to make their decisions.

Attending the DRP meetings will see you amongst a professional group of high powered architects and urban planners so you are well presented and articulate. Part of your role is to keep them focused. Booking these meetings can sometimes feel as though you are hearding cats.

If we have sparked your interest then do call for a confidential chat. We do have a full job description which will be made available for suitable candidates.
