Recreation Officer - Waitaki District Council

Are you passionate about supporting your community's recreational aspirations? Do you want to live, work, and play in one of New Zealand's most beautiful districts?

The Waitaki District Council is looking for a self-motivated individual to lead the delivery of Council's recreational activities in the Ahuriri Valley including our Parks and Reserves, Lakes Camping Grounds, and the maintenance of the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail in Waitaki.

A good sense of humour, a can-do attitude and the capability to work collaboratively with others are essential.

In return, you can expect to be part of a friendly and committed team that is passionate about doing their bit for the community.

Waitaki is one of New Zealand's most vibrant on-the-grow districts and home to great lakes, ski fields, cycle trails, epic tramping, fishing and hunting, surf beaches, and so much more. Award-winning restaurants, wineries, craft breweries, Steampunk, and Oamaru's fascinating Victorian Precinct will be at your doorstep, along with Aotearoa's longest national heartland cycleway (the Alps to Ocean) and the fabulous Waitaki Whitestone Geopark. In 2020 Oamaru was voted the most welcoming town in New Zealand by Add to this affordable housing, great schools and a real sense of community with no traffic jams.
