The Ministry of Transport, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and the New Zealand Transport Agency (the NZ Transport Agency) are seeking a full time Project Director for the Auckland Smarter Transport Pricing Project (the Project). The Project will provide advice to the Government and Auckland Council on whether to introduce pricing for demand management purposes in Auckland.
The successful candidate will have three key roles:
• managing the overall resources provided by agencies and external consultants for the Project and reporting to the Project Steering Group
• overseeing the stakeholder and public engagement process for the Project
• ensuring that the overall Project plan is delivered according to time, cost, scope and quality parameters.
We anticipate that the Contract will commence as soon as possible. The anticipated Contract term is 18 months to 2 years. Although it should be noted that the project is set up in phases with gateways at the end of each phase for the decision-makers to agree to proceed with the project. This would mean the Ministry of Transport would have discretion to terminate the contract if the decision is taken not to proceed at the end of any of the phases.
The role will be based in Auckland. Travel outside of Auckland will be required from time to time.
