Job Description

  • Assist Government to achieve property objectives
  • Make statutory decisions on acquisitions and disposals of Crown property
  • Utilise your property experience and tertiary qualification


This is an exciting opportunity to join a small team of subject matter experts operating as part of Land Information New Zealand's (LINZ) Crown property group. You will assist Government to achieve property related objectives whilst looking after the interests of all New Zealanders. Real opportunities exist here to step up and become more autonomous, utilising your decision-making skills within set parameters.

The purpose of this role is to make statutory decisions on the acquisition and disposal of land by Crown Agencies, primarily under the Public Works Act and various treaty settlement legislations. The work is high profile and important on a number of levels.

You may have a valuation or property background or a legal background (LLB and practical legal experience). Familiarity working within a regulatory regime and an ability to follow process and procedures is desirable. Attention to detail, a focus on quality assurance, excellent record keeping and workload management skills are essential in order to ensure consistency, transparency and robust decision-making. You should also demonstrate an ability to build key stakeholder relationships and have good communication skills.

Ideal candidates will demonstrate:

  • Excellent analytical skills, sound comprehension and assessment ability
  • Professional judgment and communication style
  • Good relationship building and management
  • An outcomes-focused approach towards robust decision making
  • Property expertise and background or Legal background


There are opportunities for movement within the wider Crown Property Group and you will receive training, support, and mentoring from dedicated professionals in your new team. This position is based in Wellington.

At Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), our key role is to ensure New Zealanders have accurate information about where people and places are, that people have confidence in their property rights and that Crown property is well managed for future generations.

From the best way to develop farm land, build a new suburb, manage a high country farm or navigate on land or at sea, our work and location information help people make better decisions and create economic, social, environmental and cultural value for New Zealand.
