Job Description

Game changing leadership role in Te Anau/Fiordland. Operations, relationships, tourism and biodiversity. People and operations leader sought.


Now is an exciting time at DOC and we have an amazing opportunity to lead Aotearoa New Zealand's largest operations district and significantly contribute to conservation. Fiordland National Park is the heart of this district, home to many of our threatened species and a popular destination for international visitors.


The Te Anau based Operations Manager leads the district's operations team to ensure the effective integrated delivery of high quality conservation outcomes.  Importantly, we are looking for someone who can create and identify gamechanger opportunities, and who makes them happen, and who has a strength in operating discipline to ensure the region thrives.


This role requires an experienced people leader who is skilled at inspiring, motivating and directing teams and who will shape a culture that values continuous improvement. There is a strong relationship management component to this role, including working with our treaty partner collaboratively and effectively, as well as the community, businesses and others. Experience in conservation management is desirable but not essential.


As DOC has a strong focus on Health and Safety, this role will also be responsible for leading a safety-first culture across all work sites.
