Business Support Officer - Incident Response (Fixed Term)

We want more good people to come and do great things with us. We love where we live. That's why we work so hard to look after our region and the people who live and work in the Waikato region. Our work is as diverse as the region we care for; from the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu. We've got ambitious goals and there are some tricky issues, but that's what makes it so interesting.

An exciting fixed term opportunity has arisen to work as a Business Support Officer with the Incident Response team.  Based at our Hamilton office, this busy role will work closely with the Incident Response Officers undertaking a range of administrative duties.

Tasks will include:

  • File management
  • Transcribing voice recordings from the Incident Response Officers after they have undertaken site visits as well as additional data entry support.
  • Downloading media from devices into relevant temporary drives and Discover
  • Creating and updating IRIS requests
  • Developing new resources and streamlining existing resources used by the team.
  • Using mapping systems (E.g. Smartmaps, Google Earth) to assist with determining spatial locations of incidents

The ideal candidate will have excellent time management and organisational skills, an understanding of the administration requirements of the Resource Management Act, proven experience in developing and improving systems and procedures.

If you take pride in delivering excellent customer service, have an eye for detail, and are passionate about providing excellent business support then this role is perfect for you!
