Crown Infrastructure Partners

Crown Infrastructure Partners Limited (CIP) is a crown-owned entity with the purpose of investigating and implementing commercial models to achieve key Government objectives.
Their strategic initiatives benefit all New Zealanders, and include the deployment of water, roading and urban development infrastructure to support an increase in housing supply, managing the Government’s investment in Ultra-Fast Broadband, the 3 Waters Reform, and the Infrastructure Reference Group which was formed in April 2020 to identify and allocate capital to critical infrastructure projects.
Through partnership with public and private sector organisations, and through co-investment and funding, CIP can fast track these key initiatives and projects to fruition.

The Opportunity

The Commercial Manager – Infrastructure Development will focus on CIP’s Housing and Urban Development Infrastructure (H&UDI) workstreams. Reporting through to the Deputy CEO – Infrastructure Funding and Financing (IFF), this position will work with the IFF team and key external stakeholders to identify, develop, advance, and ultimately execute H&UDI projects.
More specifically, your key areas of responsibility for the role include:

  • Develop the H&UDI project pipeline including leading engagement with local authorities and associated parties to identify and progress projects
  • Development of IFF Models for Focus H&UDI projects
  • Working with advisors to determine financing options, develop financial strategy and implementation approach for the transaction
  • Leading the execution of specific H&UDI Transactions
  • Ongoing support to the Deputy CEO – IFF with other Government infrastructure initiatives

Your Profile

To be successful, you will demonstrate considerable experience successfully managing diverse and senior stakeholder relationships. Specifically, your ability to take stakeholders on a journey, to achieve ‘buy-in’, to influence and advise, and to bring stakeholders together to work towards a common goal is paramount.
Communication is a core facet of this position, with this opportunity demanding an individual who can communicate often complex and ambiguous issues right through to Board level. Commercial acumen will underpin everything you do, with an unwavering commitment and determination to achieve optimal outcomes for all parties involved.
Experience working across complex infrastructure projects will be viewed as highly favourable, as will project management, project finance and broader capital investment experience.
