Closing Date: 25 May 2020 at 4:00pm

Council as a publicly accountable shareholder is seeking dynamic and diverse individuals to help build on and develop the Council’s commercial operations for its CCTO Gisborne Holdings Limited (GHL).

The role of GHL is to operate profitably and provide a non-rates income stream to Council – so that we can deliver better outcomes for the communities of Tairāwhiti–Gisborne.

To help achieve this we are looking to appoint two experienced board directors with strong commercial backgrounds.

The Council is working collaboratively with its CCTO to set the direction and investment strategy for the future. This is an exciting and challenging time to join the board in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to create sustainable economic opportunities for our region’s wellbeing.

You will have a strong public service ethos and demonstrated awareness and understanding of Council’s (and therefore GHL’s) commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi. In addition to your commercial experience you will possess:

sound professional judgement and decision making;

strategic leadership and risk management experience;

exceptional financial experience and business skills; andstrong networks, links and relationships to the communities, iwi and hapū of Te Tairāwhiti.

For 2020, Council will undertake 2 recruitment rounds, now and again in November 2020 to align with Council’s Board Appointment and Remuneration Policy. Two Directors retire as they have served beyond their three year terms. One Director has indicated their desire to re-apply. The second Director has served their maximum term of nine years and cannot seek reappointment.

We encourage anyone with an interest to apply. The term of appointment is for up to 3 years.

To express your interest in being a board member of GHL, please send your CV with a covering letter to heather.kohn@gdc.govt.nz before 4pm Monday 25 May 2020.
