National Manager Local Advisory Committees

National Manager Local Advisory Committees

  • Newly-created position
  • Most trusted public sector organisation

Fire & Emergency New Zealand is a Crown Entity established under the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act 2017. Its purpose is to reduce the incidence of unwanted fires and the associated risk to life and property;  and to protect and preserve the lives, property and environment of all New Zealanders.

FENZ is undergoing significant change post the 2017 amalgamation of the former 40 organisations – the NZ Fire Service, the National Rural Fire Authority, and the 38 organisations who provided rural fire services, into one entity.

Local Advisory Committees (LACs) are being established to provide advice relating to community risks and needs from a local perspective. LAC members will engage with their local communities on behalf of the Board and provide advice to the Board and to Fire & Emergency which will ultimately inform national strategy, local issues, local planning and priority of investment.

The National Manager Local Advisory Committees is responsible for the establishment, implementation, coordination, management, monitoring, support and reporting related to the legislatively mandated Local Advisory Committees across New Zealand, including the processes and workflows that support it. 

To be effective in this key position, you will be a senior professional with a wealth of leadership experience. You will have deep knowledge and understanding of governance and the political, social and economic aspects within the statutory framework.  You will be highly effective at juggling project management, planning and organising priorities and developing sophisticated stakeholder networks.
