Dunedin is arguably the heritage capital of New Zealand and has a wealth of built and cultural heritage, and a community that is dedicated to its retention and celebration. DCC has been a leader in encouraging heritage conservation and adaptive re-use and is seeking someone to continue that legacy. Are you the can-do, positive person that is ready to take up that challenge?
The Heritage Advisor also has a key role to play in heritage strategy and policy formation and implementation as part of District Plan changes, resource consents and other DCC policies and strategies.
You will have a talent for networking, and for bringing together diverse groups to achieve great outcomes for our city. A tertiary degree in Resource Management, Planning or a heritage-related discipline is essential, with experience in heritage protection or policy.
DCC is seeking an experienced heritage expert with a passion for working with building and landowners, key stakeholders, and the wider community to encourage heritage conservation, reuse of heritage buildings, and heritage celebration. This includes supporting the Dunedin Heritage Fund and running a range of events that promote and support heritage work in the City.
If you have the passion to continue the legacy that has seen some significant revitalisation projects completed to date, we would welcome your application.
Applications for this role will be considered as they are received, and suitable applications may be progressed prior to the closing date of 27 October 2021.
