Te Aranga Alliance is a rolling programme of infrastructure improvement and land development works programmed over the next 7+ years. Land development throughout eastern Porirua is underway to accommodate Kāinga Ora’s new housing developments.

Our current forward programme includes a major new sewer replacement through Bothamley Park that will prevent more than 40,000m3 of raw sewage discharging into the Kenepuru Stream and Porirua Harbour each year, a new reservoir that will significantly improve the capacity and resilience of water supply to the area, and a new wetland that will help manage stormwater runoff. Many kilometers of old wastewater and water mains are also to be renewed.   

We are looking for people who want to be a part of this amazing initiative and join our great team, to not only design and build some awesome new infrastructure, but to achieve outstanding outcomes for the community of Porirua. 

The Role

Reporting to the Planning & Regulatory Manager, you will be leading prescriptive communications to support our design and construction activities.  Be responsible for:

  • Alliance communications – tasks across external & internal outlets
  • Coordinating relevant communications for private properties within eastern Porirua
  • Liaising with Kāinga Ora on resident notification for Kāinga Ora properties
  • Coordinating public notification events and public co-design events, in liaison with Kāinga Ora communications and marketing groups
  • Coordinating project update communications to the community, in line with Kāinga Ora requirements and expectations
  • Liaising with project teams to determine when appropriate communications are needed
  • Keeping records of interactions with neighbours and the community

This role can either be part time or full time – we are offering flexibility to secure the right person. Maybe you’re looking to work school hours, perhaps you are semi-retired and are looking to work less than 40 hours a week? Whatever you are looking for – this is a great role and one not to be missed!
