New GM Human Resources


The Christchurch City Council has appointed Chris Till as its new General Manager Human Resources.

Council Chief Executive Tony Marryatt announced Mr Till's appointment to staff on Friday. Mr Till will take up his new position in early May.

He is at present based in Auckland as Group Manager - Human Resources for Express Couriers Limited, a joint venture between NZ Post and DHL which, with 2400 staff, is a similar sized workforce to Council.

Chris Till holds an Honours Law Degree from Oxford University and has risen rapidly through the management ranks of various organisations since his initial role after graduation with the Woking Borough Council in Britain. He has worked in the Middle East and in the United Kingdom for companies including Johnson and Johnson, Xenicom Ltd and Lloyds TSB. He brings a wealth of experience in human resources to Council having pioneered new processes and organisational development in his previous roles.

Chris Till says he is excited about the new role and he and his family are looking forward to moving to Christchurch. "We couldn't be happier with this opportunity," he says.

"I am looking forward to this new challenge, particularly meeting my new team and supporting them in the future."
