Head of Transformation


Hamilton is a city on the rise and on the cusp of the most exciting period in our city’s history. We’re one of the fastest-growing cities in the country and we are also the country’s most youthful city.

Over the next 10 years alone, more than $2B is being invested in the city’s largest-ever capital works programme. We’re in the heart of New Zealand’s fastest-growing tech industry, a booming tourism sector and powerful economic region.

Our city is buzzing with change, and we’re on the hunt for a Head of Transformation who can harness the opportunities coming our way.

The fundamental changes our great river city is experiencing need to be matched with a shift in the way Hamilton City Council operates. We’re determined to reimagine local government, and think differently about every aspect of Council activity. As Head of Transformation, you’ll lead our people to deliver on this aspiration. Accordingly, innovation and disruption should come naturally to you, along with leadership in leveraging data and technology, change management and strategy development.

In addition to reshaping the business and culture of Hamilton City Council, you’ll also be responsible for enabling Hamilton to become a Smart city. The role will require proven expertise in inspiring and influencing stakeholders across the organisation as well as external partners. You should be comfortable in shaking things up, and confident in creating and connecting people to your vision.

This is your chance to transform our organisation and have meaningful impact on how we achieve our purpose of improving the wellbeing of Hamiltonians. Bring your skills, experience and leadership to our team and spearhead Hamilton’s journey of change.

All candidates will be notified of the outcome on their application via email. Short-listed candidates may be required to complete an interview process, reference checks, pre-employment medical, drug and alcohol assessments, credit check and a Ministry of Justice or Police vetting check.
