Partnering with Local Government
MartinJenkins has been a member of the LGNZ Preferred Partner membership scheme since its outset in 2014.
The Local Government New Zealand programme highlights organisations that deliver value to local government in New Zealand, as part of LGNZ’s commitment to strengthen governance and performance in the sector.
Local government is a consistently important focus for MartinJenkins, says Managing Director Kevin Jenkins.
“Our aim in this work is to lift not only the client’s performance but also their community’s social, economic and organisational standing. Working with local government provides an opportunity for us to put our organisational and economic expertise to really good use for communities at the local level.
“Not only can we bring our technical skills to bear, but we can also help build links to central government, and councils’ understanding of commercial and national imperatives that affect them.”
The LGNZ Preferred Partner membership scheme was a good example of collaborative approach in action.
“We value this partnership. It’s good to be able to support the work of a key sector organisation, while keeping a close connection to the issues and challenges that face local authorities.”
