What would you do about the stuff that really matters?


Right now, we need people who can turn their thinking into solutions for the future of an even Greater Wellington.

There's a lot more to us than meets the eye. Here at Greater Wellington Regional Council, we're working on the big things that will impact everyone in our region. Ensuring we have uninterrupted access to drinking water, staying safe from the threat of flooding, protecting and enhancing the environment, improving the quality of our fresh water, ensuring we are all connected through our public transport network and planning ahead for the potential impact of climate change across our region. We're people who are genuinely passionate about the work we do, because we believe what we do counts.


About the role:

We're offering an exciting new opportunity for a designer to join our in-house creative solutions team. This team has been hugely successful in its first year and is now looking to lift the bar even further in terms of design thinking, digital design and customer service.

In this role, you'll:

  • help build a high performing team that delivers cohesive solutions spanning design, multimedia and content creation that are on-brand and meet our business and customer engagement objectives
  • support the creative solutions lead to upskill the team in digital design
  • provide high-quality design advice and services to internal customers and stakeholders
  • understand our strategic direction and ensure our visual communications reflect these objectives while meeting the needs of the client
  • ensure our design contributes to a positive customer experience for external audiences.


A bit about you:

You're an experienced conceptual ideas based designer with a ‘can do' attitude and a proven track record of working with others to effectively solve business problems. You'll love delivering high quality, multi-channel creative solutions both individually and as part of a team, have a great eye for detail, be enthusiastic and motivated.

You'll “get digital” – you'll understand where and how social media can add value and be able to integrate video, animation and motion graphics to creatively enhance our customer's experience. You'll also get the need for multi-channel design and able to turn your hand to anything from a brochure or signage solution through to online campaigns. 

While all this is important, we're really looking for a team player who shares ideas, enjoys working with others and breaking the mould in terms of design thinking.


Our benefits

We provide a diverse range of benefits including flexible working options that help our staff balance their own lifestyle and needs with their work commitments. We're also all about growing our people through professional development and experience across everything the council does.
