Buller District Council

CEO Recruitment

Are You Our New Chief Executive?

As the new Chief Executive of Buller District Council you will be committed to staying for at least the coming 5 to 7 years.  You will be someone who, above all else:

  • Shares and understands the unique culture and values of the West Coast
  • Is personally committed to being a rewarding person to work with – whether that be for the ratepayers or stakeholders, the staff of the Council, or the Mayor and Councillors
  • Is happy to be judged by your results and actions rather than by your words.

As Chief Executive you will aspire to Councils own goals and aspirations for the organisation as an influential and important employer, as well as being a crucial shaper in the future of the Buller District.  Your core areas of accountability will include the typical components of a Chief Executive role: organisational leadership, service delivery, culture and capability, systems and processes, change management and relationship building.

You will also be able to detail examples of how you have led comprehensive results-driven performance together with the measures you have used to prove your results.  Council is committed to fully supporting you through clearly articulating its performance expectations and putting in place the systems and processes to ensure that you are successful.  A draft discussion document of Councils intended approach on organisational and Chief Executive performance is included below within the candidate briefing pack.

Crucially, you will be able to demonstrate that you are, and have been, an inspiring and motivating leader.

What do you get in return?  You get the opportunity to:

  • Work for a supportive elected Council and an enthusiastic organisation keen to make you succeed for the benefit of the district and ratepayers
  • Stamp an indelible mark on the future of the district
  • Categorically demonstrate your passion and talents somewhere that you are both wanted and needed
  • Live in a stunning part of New Zealand while making an important and fulfilling contribution to the place you live and the people in it.

So … If you think you want to be part of something amazing, then we want you here!!  Apply now!
