About us

At the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. 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 New Zealand. 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 Property Services team is part of the Corporate Services group that provides key specialist corporate functions that are core to the value chain to enable the Agency to run efficiently and achieve organisational excellence internally and for the land transport system.

We provide the full range of services such as the acquisition, property management, and disposal of properties for the NZ Transport Agency’s projects. This is often complex, challenging work that requires an attention to detail, and engagement with many stakeholders including property owners and local communities.

The role

We are looking for a Senior Facilities Manager who can provide expert advice on facilities management and can implement strategies to improve the overall performance of our corporate offices.

This is a dynamic and varied role which includes all aspects of relationship management, property compliance, maintenance and project management, risk management, financial and contracts management and reporting.

The Senior Facilities Manager will work within an internal team of property and facilities managers to manage the portfolio of properties leased and owned by NZTA for its corporate purposes. These properties are spread right across New Zealand.

You will need

To be successful in this role, you will need:

  • Extensive leadership experience with specific experience in asset, property and facilities management at a portfolio level
  • In-depth understanding and expertise in facilities management, building services and relevant legislation
  • Proven experience in leading, influencing and building credibility across a range of stakeholders
  • Ability to apply a strategic context to the work
  • Excellent commercial best practice and asset management skills
  • Relevant tertiary qualifications at a graduate level, or in a relevant discipline and at least 5-10 years facilities management experience
