Call for Expressions of Interest for Worker Representative

We are looking for a suitably qualified and experienced Worker Representative to join the TTM ISG.

Are you an experienced operational TTM worker with a passion for contributing to the future of the industry?

Do you want to help shape the transition away from CoPTTM to a more risk-based approach for the TTM industry?

Or maybe you know someone who’d be great?

The TTM ISG Worker Representative is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference in the future of TTM in New Zealand for all workers, ensuring their voices are heard.

It’s also a fantastic professional development opportunity for the successful individual to gain exposure to operating at a governance level, decision making, representation and the machinery of local and central government.

About Us

Between 2017 and 2021, there were 43 fatal crashes and 287 serious injury crashes at road work sites with temporary speed limits. This is an increase on the previous 5-year period and it's clear change is needed.

The TTM ISG was formed to support the industry through a transition in the way we plan and deliver traffic management, from the compliance-based Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) to the more risk-based approach described in the New Zealand Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (NZGTTM). This new, risk-based approach will better enable TTM setups that are as safe as possible for the specific risks at each site.

The TTM ISG is made up of representatives from TTM suppliers, utilities, contractors, engineering consultants, road controlling authorities and roadworkers. It is supported by five workstreams: Training and Competency, Commercial (Procurement), Good Practice, Audit and Assurance, and Communications and Engagement.

About the Role

Role: Worker Representative, TTM ISG

Term: Minimum of 12 months

Commitment: Minimum 10 hours per month (unpaid position). TTM ISG meetings are held monthly (typically 9.30am to 3.30pm), alternating between in-person (held in Auckland) and online. In addition to this, each workstream meets once a month for approximately one hour. Some TTM ISG members are involved with more than one workstream.

Timeline: Applications close at 5pm on Tuesday 30 April 2024. The TTM ISG is hoping to appoint someone by the end of May, to allow adequate time for them to make arrangements to attend the following in-person meeting of the TTM ISG on Thursday 20 June 2024.

Important: This is an unpaid position. You will need your organisation's support to attend meetings, cover travel costs, and have access to a laptop for work purposes. Please show organisational endorsement in your expression of interest.
