Jill Coyle is the Group Manager People & Transformation at the Far North District Council, a role she has held for over eight years. Originally from the UK, Jill currently lives in Kerikeri with her husband Liam, who "appears to fish and dive for a living!" They have two teenage girls.
Jill has been within the human resources sector for over 25 years in various industries such as retail, utilities, FMCG, manufacturing and local government.
In her spare time, Jill is a keen sportsperson and has taken part in many half marathons and triathlons. At weekends you will find her supporting her teenage girls from the sidelines of the netball courts. She says that once they have moved out of home, she may consider undertaking some crazy ultra-event.
