Do you want to be a key part of shaping how New Zealanders and international visitors connect with nature in the future?

More and more people are enjoying New Zealand’s conservation lands and waters. That’s great, but it brings real challenges around connecting people with these precious places while still conserving them.

To help us look after New Zealand’s awesome natural and historic heritage we are creating a team to seize the opportunity to grow peoples’ connections with our precious places in a way that ensures conservation values are preserved.

So, if you are a passionate, experienced planning professional we would love to have you join us in the department’s Policy and Visitors Group. You will be working with councils, stakeholders and communities to develop collaborative plans focused on recreation and tourism at key high-pressure locations across New Zealand.

To be successful you will have proven leadership ability, relationships built on integrity and clear communication skills. These attributes will complement your significant knowledge and experience in planning, especially working alongside others to develop agreed strategic and spatial landscape plans. In addition, you will be a team player who is proactive at working with others, able to understand other’s views and can secure mutually beneficial outcomes.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a new team that will see us greatly increase the focus on working across agencies to achieve outcomes for conservation and for visitors.

The location of these roles are based near or within easy travel of known planning locations, some domestic travel may be required.
