Job Description

This advert is for one position based in Auckland which has been advertised in multiple locations

Te Papa Atawhai has an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and skilled individual to be at the leading edge of iwi partnership and conservation leadership in Tāmaki Makaurau. 


About the role

The Māori (mana whenua and matāwaka) landscape in the DOC Auckland region is complex with 19 iwi (with overlapping rights and interests and at varying stages of settlement redress and settlement implementation) and active matāwaka interests.  DOC staff are reliant on excellent knowledge of the Māori landscape to effectively undertake their work.


The Treaty Implementation Ranger provides specialist capability to coordinate, support and fulfil DOC's Treaty obligations in Tāmaki Makaurau. 

This role forms part of our Community team which leads the regional planning, permissions and land work; this requires regular consultation with iwi, to understand their views on applications, which include permits to hold wildlife, guide tourists, research or salvage as well as concessions and land management. 


In this role you will be helping to develop framework for managing communications and consultation with iwi as well as identifying gaps in Treaty Settlement implementation.  You will work across the Tāmaki Makaurau region with two other Treaty Implementation Rangers.


Key skills

  • Te Reo me ona tikanga Māori
  • Sound statutory knowledge of Treaty settlement processes and specific settlements in the area
  • Ability to navigate and balance differing perspectives while maintaining alignment with DOC goals
  • Excellent communication and relationship skills across a diverse range of people and organisations
  • Technical writing skills and ability to create clear, well written content for complex information
  • Knowledge of Tāmaki Makaurau iwi history, traditions and customary practices
  • Be able to see the big picture and to have enthusiasm to find workable practical solutions
  • Knowledge of the Wildlife Act, Conservation Act and Resource Management Act would be advantageous.
  • Current full driving license.

Please apply online at the DOC Careers Centre.  Applications must include a cover letter and CV.
