Recovery roles in Emergency Management

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) provides national leadership to New Zealand’s distributed emergency management system. NEMA’s primary focus is on the performance and capability of the emergency management system as a whole, across all hazards and all risks and the 4 Rs of risk reduction, readiness, response and recovery. We are going through an exciting phase of growth and there will be more opportunities with NEMA over the coming months.

NEMA values diversity and inclusion. We want our workforce to reflect the diversity of our communities. We value and respect the contributions of our people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, skills and perspectives. We support flexible ways of working that bring out the best in you.

We strive to actively build te Ao Māori perspectives and capability into our day to day work, values and practices.

In this role you will be engaging with a broad range of stakeholders at strategic or sector-wide levels, to advance recovery and build New Zealand’s ability to recover from emergencies. The Recovery Team develop and implement strategic frameworks and provide advice to enable coordinated and holistic recovery planning and activity before, during and following an emergency.
