The opportunity

We are now seeking a full-time Team Leader Monitoring Programme Coordinator to join our team in Blenheim. This is a Monday to Friday role with occasional rostered after hours work, as required.

Reporting to the Compliance Manager and working within a team of approximately 6 Environmental Protection Officers, this role will see you lead and support the Monitoring Team to perform at a high level.

You will provide high quality technical and procedural advice, reporting and support on a wide range of compliance, investigation, monitoring and enforcement issues.

This could include anything from compliance issues regarding winery waste, through to marine farms, air pollution or water quality.

Purpose of the role :

  • Lead and support the Monitoring Team to perform at a high level.
  • Ensure the team functions are performed in a customer focused, cost effective way while ensuring that good relationships are built with internal and external customers and regulatory partners.
  • Proactively integrate, network and link with other organisations, communities, business organisations, contractors, land occupiers and industry representatives to ensure that all consenting, compliance monitoring and enforcement activities are co-ordinated and aligned.
  • Provide high quality technical and procedural advice, reporting and support on a wide range of compliance, investigation, monitoring and enforcement issues.
  • Develop, implement and regularly review the group’s risk based monitoring programmes.

  • About you

    Ideally, you will hold previous experience in an environmental protection or similar role with the proven ability to interpret key policies, legislation and procedures.
