The opportunity
We are looking for an experienced Principal Project Risk Advisor to join our Auckland Council Risk team. You'll have the opportunity to lead the delivery of risk management activities throughout the organisation, working across several business units and key groups, including senior managers and other key stakeholders. Working within the Enterprise Risk team you will have exposure to a variety of risk assessments projects, but your initial focus will be on construction and infrastructure projects and contracts across Auckland Council including but not limited to Americas Cup 36. Finally, this is a senior role, so you will be a mentor to the rest of the Risk team driving performance and delivery.

About you
You are experienced. You know Risk. You can explain risk management in 30 seconds or less and probably give a 5-minute presentation as well. You have worked on a variety of project and contract risk assessments in the construction and infrastructure sector. You are degree qualified and almost certainly an affiliated member of a Risk organisation. Working in a large organisation with stakeholders from all levels doesn't worry you and you've been putting customers at ease with your knowledge of risk management for years.

You will have a great work-life balance in a team that is fun and outgoing. You will be exposed to a variety of projects like nowhere else including the Americas Cup and have the support to develop new skills. We take staff well-being seriously and have career opportunities like nowhere else. Don't delay, apply now to be a part of this fun, vibrant and unique Insurance and Claims team. You will join an award winning team who recently took 2 of the major RiskNZ awards 2018
