Make history with us
As New Zealand’s environmental regulator, the work we do today helps shape the future of Aotearoa.
The Compliance, Monitoring and Enforcement (CME) group helps everyone – from small businesses to big organisations – understand and comply with environmental regulations to help protect communities, the environment and people. The CME group’s functions underpin the overall strategic direction and goals of the EPA – protecting people and the environment, delivering the right decisions and strengthening trust in the EPA.
As part of recent changes made within the CME group we are looking for a range of passionate and forward thinking professionals to join us on a move to a more cohesively-aligned, strengthened, and active CME Group.
The purpose of the Principal Advisor position is to support the delivery of multi-disciplinary CME functions by leading and contributing to developing capability and consistency across CME activities and all environmental legislation that the EPA administers. The role will be focused on providing strategic CME advice and expertise, and coaching and support across the CME.
The Principal Advisor will identify, coordinate and support a range of initiatives to build and integrate capability across the CME Group including learning and development programmes, warranting programmes and continuous learning to ensure we are live to the regulatory environment in which we operate, and provide robust and quality frameworks to support our CME activities across our legislative mandate. The position is a new and exciting role with great opportunities to contribute to more cohesive and proactive environmental regulation.
