With more than 750 people over 10 locations, the Citycare Property teams span the length and breadth of Aotearoa, supporting a full range of property contracts.

Exciting changes within the structure of the wider Citycare Group have led to the establishment of the new role of General Manager Customer Engagement for the property business. This role impacts across key functions including contract management, communications, data and sustainability.

This is a space where Decipher Group leads the way – our innovative and time-tested approach to search identifies and attracts the right leaders.
