Brittany Kithulagoda

What does your role involve?

Being an Assistant Development Manager is really diverse. I work very closely with the Development Manager and Project Management Team on the overall delivery of Wesley from the initial masterplanning and infrastructure planning for the neighbourhood through to the delivery and completion of homes. I get the privilege to work with mana whenua and iwi, the community and our community-based teams, LEAD Alliance our infrastructure and civil partners and all the wonderful people in between. It’s a super varied role that where I get to be involved in every aspect of ultimately delivering new, warm homes for our community.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I love the diversity it brings, my team at Kāinga Ora who is really supportive and make it such an awesome place to come and work every day, and working with our community and their manaakitanga is truly inspiring. It is a privilege to be able to work alongside them.

What do you love most about the Wesley community?

They go above and beyond for each other and always there to lend a hand to whoever needs. I love their passion and commitment to the community. It is a beautiful community to be a part of and one I strive to celebrate and cherish in everything I do.

What were you doing previously?

I have been at Kāinga Ora for 2.5 years now but before that I have a background in Urban Design and I worked at Auckland Transport as an urban designer and then at Be. Lab a not-for-profit organisation in their Design Review Team, where we assessed existing buildings and design plans to rate their accessibility.

What do you like doing outside of the office?

Spending time with my family and friends, being at the beach, reading, I am a sucker for a good romance so anything with a great love story has me hooked. I love to be outside going for long walks.
