He angitūtanga | About the role
The Project Stream Lead Role will be responsible for leading delivery of multiple workstreams for the redevelopment of key visitor infrastructure for Rākau Rangatira in the Waipoua Forest.
The Rakau Rangatira project will create new infrastructure which will put the health of the Waipoua Forest first while also enabling a more immersive visitor experience that promotes Te Roroa as tangata whenua. The project is currently in the design and consent phase and is scheduled for completion in late 2024.
As a Project Stream you will be supporting the Project Manager to complete the design, consent, tendering and construction phases of the project by working with our project partners Te Roroa, engaging and managing consultants and contractors, working within agreed schedules, finances and reporting, as well as proactively managing risk and communications with key stakeholders.
The role will also support the development of the Detailed Business Case by leading workstreams that ensure the case for change is clearly defined, intended benefits are measurable and achievable, and planning for the transition to business-as-usual post construction is thorough.
The role will also play a key role in the management of health and safety for staff, consultants and contractors involved in delivering the project on the group, so a thorough understanding of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and your role within it is a must.
