HR Business Partner - People & Organisational Development - Rotorua Lakes Council


Te Kaunihera o nga Roto o Rotorua (Rotorua Lakes Council) has an exciting opportunity for a seasoned HR practitioner to join our People and Organisational Development team.  This is a rare chance to make the career defining move you've been waiting for - the opportunity to put your generalist HR prowess to the test and really 'sink your teeth' in!

We are looking for an HR superstar with broad experience in an advisory role to provide functional leadership, and deliver seamless business partner support to an assigned portfolio and the wider organisation. Confidence when working in Maori environments is considered desirable.

We are committed to working in partnership with Te Arawa, our local iwi.  We aspire to being a bicultural organisation and we value staff who speak te reo Maori, have an appreciation of Maori values, and a working knowledge of tikanga Maori.

This comprehensive role encompasses the complete HR spectrum - in fact given the scope of our organisation you'll enjoy all new professional challenges, and the resulting rewards.   With a demonstrated HR background you'll thrive in the diversity these roles will deliver - everything from investigating, analysing and recommending on the broad range of HR matters, and the ability to advise and coach managers and business partners in people processes and practices, down to how to respond in culturally appropriate ways when working with mana whenua and Maori in general.

If you are an energetic, experienced people professional with a sound understanding of HR legislation and a relevant tertiary qualification, then this could be an opportunity for you. 

Diverse, career enhancing HR opportunities like this do not come along often, so if you're ready to make the most of all it, we'd love to hear from you! Kia mataara!
