Job Description

Do you want an interesting and challenging role in conservation? Do you want to help make decisions about the use of New Zealand's special places, such as national parks and reserves?


We are looking for a talented Permissions Advisor to join our Permissions Team in Dunedin.  This is a fixed term contract for two years.


In 2013, the Department completed a five-year change programme designed to change the way we work. Our new structure has been designed to significantly grow the amount of conservation being done across all New Zealand, and in partnership with others. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of teams working to this new operating model that will see an increased focus on working within a wider national team. This will provide an integrated professional service to the rest of the organisation.


You will process a wide range of Concession applications associated with the variety of uses of public conservation land, and assess them under the relevant legislation, making recommendations to decision-makers.  You will build and maintain relationships with a wide range of people, industries and stakeholders.


A key component of the role will also be to undertake OIA requests and Ministerial responses including the co-ordination of requests and responses being worked on by other staff members.


You will need well developed analytical and relationship building skills, a strong commitment to quality processes and providing a customer focused service.  You will also need to plan and organise your time effectively and demonstrate excellent written and oral communication skills. An interest in the resource or environmental management field or similar equivalent experience in assessing environmental effects would also be desirable.


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


Please apply online. Applications must include a cover letter, CV and evidence of the required capabilities as per the project description.

For more information please contact Vicki Crosbie,, VPN 5603 or telephone (03) 474 6903, quoting vacancy 400/981T.


Applications close at 5pm on Monday, 1 October 2018.


DOC is committed to a diverse workforce that represents the communities we serve, and to creating an inclusive workplace culture.
