About the job

Professional Development Project Manager (Contract Role)

Survey and Spatial New Zealand is seeking applications for the role of Professional Development Project Manager for a 6 to 7 month placement.

We are a professional, Wellington based, organisation representing Surveyors and Spatial professionals and we are seeking the right person to review and/or develop systems and processes to further enhance the professional development services we provide to our members.

There are 5 Projects in all, as follows:

1. Professional Certification Project

This project involves a complete review of the Institutes existing ‘Registered Professional Surveyor’ (RPSurv) Certification program in order to make it fit-for-purpose for the needs of a modern professional organisation in a way which also expands the existing program to provide an effective certification process for all Institute members. This project is time sensitive and a summary report, complete with recommendations, will be expected by mid October 2020.

2. CPD Pathway Project

This project involves the design of a comprehensive Continuing Professional Development education program for Institute members and anticipates that the resulting program will be broad enough, in its scope, to address the bespoke requirements of differing professional needs within the broad context of the Surveying and Spatial professionals who make up our membership. There is a preference to incorporate this project into the Certification review if possible.

3. Ethics Review

This project involves a review of the Institutes existing complaints process including, but not necessarily limited to, clarity, ease of access, rules and processes, Governance Structure and delivery.

4. Governance and Rules Document Review

This project involves a review of the organisations existing Governance processes and Rules to determine whether current rules are still fit-for-purpose and to recommend new approaches to the way in which the Institute fulfils, and undertakes, its democratic functions, if necessary.

5. Guidance Notes rewrite

This project involves reviewing and, if necessary, rewriting the Guidance notes which are circulated prior to our annual professional examinations.

The successful applicant will be supported by other members of our fantastic Wellington-based team and will also have extensive access to the collective experience of members and stakeholders.

It would also be our expectation that the successful applicant will be responsible for the initial stages of implementation of any recommendations - and there is a possibility of a permanent position at the conclusion of the project.

If this sounds like you – please send your CV and a covering letter to:
