Senior Planner - Whangarei, New Zealand

Joe Henehan chose to study at Waikato because he wanted somewhere close to home, but away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland.
After originally enrolling in a Social Sciences degree, Joe transferred to a Bachelor of Environmental Planning (BEP), specialising in Public Policy and the Environment.
“The BEP is accredited by the New Zealand Planning Institute which means that it’s up there with the best planning degrees in the country.”
Joe is now a senior planner in Whangarei and moved into that role after working as an environment planner for the Whangarei District Council. "I could not have walked into a job like this without the degree I chose. I started searching for a job in the Planning field straight after university, and nailed down some part-time work at the council, which a few months later turned into full time work." he says.
