What does Oliver love about the planning profession? No two days are ever the same. 

Oliver started with the 4Sight team in January 2022 as a Graduate Planning and Policy Consultant based in our Auckland office. 

Having worked at New Plymouth District Council for the past two summers as an intern, mainly in the resource consents team and working in compliance and monitoring, Oliver hopes to kickstart his full-time planning career by getting stuck into various projects and focussing on learning from experience.

He holds a Bachelor of Science majoring in Land Planning and Development from Otago University, which covered a variety of land planning elements such as surveying, resource management, land development engineering, land law, and urban design. He later completed a Master of Planning in 2021 and was also awarded the Otago University Māori Masters Research Scholarship to assist with his thesis, which investigated the relationship between the planning system and the potential for papakāinga development by mana whenua.

Oliver decided to become a Planner due to his strong interest in people's relationships with their environment. He felt the planning profession was broad as well and offered a lot of variety - no two days are ever the same. So this, combined with the level of influence planners can have on their surrounding environment, drew him to the industry, and he hopes to one day achieve positive outcomes for his community through his work.

In his spare time, Oliver is a keen outdoorsman, enjoying hiking, mountain biking, swimming, golf, surfing, or throwing a ball around. But his interests don't just stop there; when the weather calls for him to remain indoors, he loves to play basketball, watch sports/movies, read, and play his guitar.
