  • Experience in governance, leadership, or community development roles is preferred but not essential.
  • A doer, not just a talker, with an interest and proven hands-on involvement in community projects or initiatives.
  • Strong communication, negotiation, and problem-solving skills – because getting things done sometimes means thinking outside the box.
  • Passion for making a tangible, lasting impact in the Whakatipu community and a commitment to seeing projects through from start to finish.
