Administration & Office Support, Administrative Assistants

Our fantastic Urban Design Assistant has progressed into an exciting new role within our wider business, meaning we now have an opportunity for an Administrator with a passion for design to join our team and support the design review process, as well as provide general administrative support.

What's the role?

In this diverse role you will support the Masterplanning and Urban Design Team in facilitating a seamless design review process, checking builder plans, coordinating meetings, creating and managing industry/knowledge-sharing events, relationship management of builder partners, and more. Your typical day will include a mix of very detail focused, process driven work, whilst also allowing you the opportunity to stretch out and take on ad hoc project work, and bring your own style of innovation and creativity to the team. You will work closely with stakeholders across the business, and will provide exceptional customer service to both internal and external clients. 

Are you who we're looking for?

Perhaps you are a high level administrator with a passion for design, or a Graduate Urban Designer looking for your 'foot in the door'. Maybe you already have experience working in a design firm, or you are a Planner looking for a change of direction. Without question you have strong administration and coordination skills, and you pride yourself on exceptional customer service. Ideally you will have previous experience in coordinating events and perhaps some exposure to marketing/graphic design. You are recognised among your friends as having great taste. In terms of personality, in order to fit right in with our team you will bring energy, positivity and a sense of fun to the workplace, and you love a good debate!

Why should you apply?

In joining HLC you will benefit from working within a relaxed, supportive environment with people who are passionate about what they do. HLC is a flexible, innovative, agile place to work and the projects we are delivering are ground-breaking in NZ. Plus there is a really big 'feel good' factor. A very competitive salary is on offer along with a comprehensive set of benefits including 5 weeks annual leave, medical, life and income protection. We are open as to whether this is a full or part time position (reduced hours, 5 days per week) so let us know what works for you!

I know you'll do your own research - but a bit about us...

At HLC community is at the heart of what we do. Getting houses built is not enough on its own. Whether we are masterplanning a new community from scratch as at Hobsonville Point, or building upon an existing community, our goal is to create great places to live. That means adding to the urban environment in a way that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable for the people who will make those communities their home – both today and for future generations.

On 1 October 2019, HLC becomes part of Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities.
