Compliance Officer

  • Experience in a Compliance role?
  • Problem solver who looks for positive outcomes?
  • Minimal call-out work.

We have had some changes in our compliance team and consequently would like to hear from experienced Compliance Officers who would like to live and work in our fantastic region.

Ruapehu District Council (RDC) is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our community.  We believe by working together, we can create a unified, prosperous future for us all.  Our compliance team play a significant role towards this, by ensuring that all compliance policies and regulations are met.

From problematic dogs, to wandering stock, runaway horses, abandoned vehicles and litter, no two days are the same in this busy and varied role.  Our district is one of the largest geographically, so the role will involve a lot of driving, often over rural roads.

Exceptional reliability, patience and discretion are paramount as is a confident assertive nature along with the desire to treat everyone with respect, dignity and impartiality.  A sense of humour doesn't go astray either.  Clearly there are a wide variety of Acts as well as council by-laws, policies and the District Plan to be enforced, but wherever possible our compliance team always endeavour to achieve positive outcomes for all parties.

Rostered after-hours work is not required however you may have to assist with the occasional call-out to support our after-hours service provider.

Please contact us if you would like to know more or just send us your application if this sounds like you.
