Do you want to wake up every morning knowing that you are going somewhere where you can partner with passionate people who are truly making a difference to our extraordinary region?  We have an exciting opportunity for a senior HR practitioner to join our fun and busy Human Resources team.

We believe that the Greater Wellington region is a great place to live, work and play, and we are really proud to be taking a leading role in protecting and enhancing it so we can keep it that way for now, and into the future. We have a friendly encouraging culture filled with people who are passionate about keeping our region extraordinary every day. 

Our Human Resources team delivers operational and project HR support to Greater Wellington's managers and staff. This includes the provision of strategic policy and operational advice in the areas of recruitment, remuneration, performance management, training and development, and employment relations. There are also a number of organisational initiatives and projects to lead or to become involved in.

This is a hands on role, which offers you the opportunity to work alongside the business and provide advice in a range of areas.


We'd love to hear from you if you have:


  • 5 years plus experience in a generalist human resource role
  • Experience in an advisory capacity, working with management and staff
  • Practical experience in employment relations/industrial relations (preferably in a unionised environment)
  • An excellent track record as an emerging HR business partner - building and maintaining positive relationships
  • Sound knowledge of HR legislation, and HR processes and practices with experience providing sound advice
  • Experience with IR and collective employment agreements
  • Excellent people and communication skills to allow you to communicate effectively with a wide range of people, both verbally and in writing
  • A methodical and well-organised approach to work, with the ability to prioritise, meet deadlines, and to work accurately under pressure
  • Ideally experience using a modern Human Resources Information System
  • A commitment to delivering a high level of customer service, and being a great teammate.


Naturally, you will also demonstrate the highest level of integrity, a can do attitude combined with a great sense of humour. Flexible working arrangements are available.
