Want to work for a business that prides itself on having a great company culture, flexibility in the workplace and encourages staff to reach their potential? We have an exciting opportunity for a Planning Consultant based in our Hamilton office to join our driven and dynamic  Planning team.  


We’re looking for someone who can manage simple to medium complexity projects, ensuring they are delivered on time and to budget. You will have the opportunity to be involved in a mixture of projects including, policy development, undertaking planning due diligence, assisting local councils with processing resource consents and acquiring resource consents for a range of development projects.

While we expect that you will still be developing and consolidating your technical skills, you will need to consistently apply foundational knowledge proficiently and with minimal supervision and input. We expect that your verbal and written communication skills will be second to none, and you will have a good understanding of the applicable legislative frameworks, experience in processing or preparing a range of consent application types and have a desire to build on this experience and develop new skills.

In addition, you will have the ability to meet time and financial budgets on project tasks with limited supervision, while at the same time developing more complex project management skills. You will be adept at problem solving and in leading tasks and small groups, as well as being able to build and maintain great relationships with external clients and your colleagues. You will also be comfortable representing 4Sight through client contact and industry events.

Teamwork is fundamental to how we operate so being willing to positively contribute to the office and team culture and getting stuck in to help out, will be key. Most importantly, you’ll bring a great attitude with you, and will like to have a laugh because although we take our commitment to the business and the environment seriously, we still like to have a lot of fun along the way.

We’re a planning and environmental consultancy that embraces sustainable and environmental excellence and leadership in our

wide-ranging projects. We’re committed to finding the best people in the industry to help guide our company into the future, because it’s the people that make us who we are and set us apart from the competition.


And find out more about us, our people and projects here.


So, if the above sounds like you and you embrace sustainable and environmental excellence, want to be a leader in your field and work with a team of likeminded individuals, not to mention work for an established, but still growing New Zealand owned award winning consultancy, please apply below.
