Environmental Advisor
Genesis Energy
Huntly, New Zealand
4d ago

Genesis is New Zealand's largest energy retailer supplying electricity, natural gas and LPG and generating around 20% of New Zealand's electricity from thermal and renewable power stations.

The Huntly Power Station (comprised of a number of generating units) represents approximately 12.5% of New Zealand's installed generation capacity and is a significant and critically important component of New Zealand's electricity supply system.

In particular, this is due to its size, proximity to the Auckland load centre, unique ability to stockpile fuel on site, utilise gas and / or coal and ability to provide security of energy supply during dry years, peak periods or when other weather-dependent generation is unable to meet consumer demand.

The continued operation of the Huntly Power Station supports and complements New Zealand's high penetration of renewable electricity generation.

About the role :

We have a unique and diverse opportunity for a pragmatic and passionate environmental professional to join the team to support environmental management, consent implementation and compliance for the Huntly Power Scheme in a manner consistent with core business values, the Resource Management Act 1991, and relevant statutory legislation, while ensuring access to natural resources through the development and implementation of environmental management systems.

About you :

  • 2+ years' practical NZ based experience in an Environmental role.
  • A relevant tertiary qualification in environmental management, science or equivalent.
  • Working knowledge of the Resource Management Act 1991, as well as other statutory and planning processes.
  • Exposure to liaising with local Iwi and key stakeholders.
  • You'll be a natural communicator, and a key contributor to enhancing our long-term relationships with Iwi and key stakeholders.

    Excellent written and verbal communication skills are a must, as is flexibility to travel to other sites / Power Stations as necessary.
