Senior/Policy Advisor Iwi Rights and Interests (Temporary) (2) Policy and Visitors
Department of Conservation
Wellington, New Zealand
3d ago

These are fixed term roles for 22 months

The Department of Conservation's vision is for New Zealand to be the greatest living space on Earth. It is responsible for some of the most important issues facing New Zealand : how to look after our unique environment in a way that benefits current and future generations.

It grapples with issues as challenging as maintaining our unique biodiversity and providing for the increasing number of tourists coming to visit our beautiful places.

  • We are looking for smart and ambitious policy advisors with a passion for providing high quality advice to join our policy unit;
  • and specifically, the team focused on developing policy frameworks that support our work with our Treaty Partners.

  • The policy unit advises on the full range of issues the Department faces; is at the front line of its relationship with Ministers and other agencies;
  • and is at the forefront of thinking on its big challenges. Section 4 of the Conservation Act requires us to give effect to the Treaty of Waitangi.

    The Department works with Treaty Partners to look after places and species that are of spiritual and cultural importance to Maori.

    You will have government policy experience, but knowledge of conservation-specific issues is not a prerequisite. Experience engaging and working in partnership with iwi and tangata whenua on policy issues is desirable.

    These are fixed term roles, finishing in October 2020.

    Eligibility to work in New Zealand is mandatory, including a valid work visa covering the whole period of employment if applying internationally.
