We want more good people to come and do great things with us. We love where we live. That's why we work so hard to look after our region and the people who live and work in the Waikato region.
Our work is as diverse as the region we care for; from the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu. We've got ambitious goals and there are some tricky issues, but that's what makes it so interesting.
Are you a tertiary student and looking for a summer job that will really kick-start your career? Our Tai-ranga-whenua Section is on the hunt for a student to join their team this summer and help with the completion of some interesting projects.
Waikato Regional Council aims to work together with communities, industry and other groups to build a Waikato region that has a healthy environment, a strong economy and vibrant communities.
Our activities help look after our regions water, soil, air, geothermal areas and coasts so that we can all enjoy these resources for generations to come.
Tai-ranga-whenua plays a key role in supporting and providing guidance to our staff across the organisation with Iwi Engagement, Te Ao Maori, Treaty of Waitangi and relationship building.
Tasks that you may be involved in include reviewing Iwi contact information, process improvement, database management, and project support.
You'll get to work alongside an aspirational, high-performing and fun team of people, with exposure to a wide variety of interactions and projects within a large organisation.
We are looking for someone who is available to start immediately with high attention to detail and good communications skills, advanced administrative and computer skills.
Legal and / or Māori and Indigenous studies would be an advantage but not essential.
This will be a full-time, fixed term role for approximately 4 months (November 2020 - February 2021).
If this sounds like the type of summer job you're after, we would love to hear from you.
