The organisation’s performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for Aotearoa. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years time.

The role is busy and varied and you will provide technical advice to our stakeholders and be the local spokesperson for highway management, including media interactions and fronting community engagements.

Your expertise in relationship management and working collaboratively with customers and stakeholders will be crucial to your success, as will your ability to build and lead your team.
