Department Stakeholder and Communications
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

Our vision at Piritahi is to change the way people live. We can do this by streamlining land development, laying the groundwork for neighbourhoods that are better to live in and homes that are more affordable.

Piritahi is an alliance of companies formed to speed up the supply of build-ready land. We prepare government-owned land for development and deliver new and upgraded infrastructure and amenity on behalf of Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities. We are working within Kāinga Ora’s large-scale urban development areas where state-owned land is being better utilised for new warm, dry, healthy homes.

Our responsibilities include detailed civil design and construction; the removal of old state houses no longer fit for purpose; land remediation; arranging consents related to earthworks and infrastructure; construction of roads, parks and utilities, and looking after the communities we’re working in as we go. We also have several focus areas spanning our scope of work, meaning we collaborate to create outcomes that are far from business as usual! Work for Piritahi and be part of the core team of people developing a practical solution to Auckland’s housing challenges.

With projects spanning multiple urban environments across Auckland, and an up-to 5-year programme of work, this is a rare opportunity to be part of an alliance that will have a lasting impact upon the city’s communities. Surrounded by industry experts from six different companies all with a common purpose, a career at Piritahi is lined with incredible development opportunities.

As the Community Liaison Advisor you will be the key contact for affected stakeholders. You will be responsible for ensuring information about construction activities is communicated to appropriate stakeholders, concerned parties and the wider community. Due to the high volume and nature of work, we require someone who is well organised, dynamic and outgoing. An understanding of civil construction projects would be ideal as you will work closely with our construction site teams and regularly liaise with members of the community regarding civils works.

This is a vital role that involves working with wide range of stakeholders including our Construction and Design teams, our Health and Safety team and other key internal and external parties.



  • Previous experience in a similar role within a construction environment.
  • Understanding of working to a project programme.
  • Experience working in local community projects.
  • Exceptional communication skills.
  • Experience in establishing credibility across a wide range of environments and levels of interaction.
  • Excellent record management skills.


Our head office is based in central Auckland and we have active projects in Northcote, Mt Roskill, Oranga, Mangere and Tamaki. This role will be split between sites and the office so frequent travel between the two will be required.


We have a great culture driven by our vision. We offer a fun and dynamic working environment, career development and pathways into various areas relating to the engineering and construction sectors. The companies who make up the alliance are also family-based organisations who value their staff and have a passion for the communities they work in.

Opportunities on projects like this do not come around often! If you are someone who thrives in a complex and dynamic environment, then we want to hear from you.
