He angitūtanga: About the Role

We are recruiting for two roles, one Senior Policy Advisor and one Policy Advisor.

Our Policy team aims to look after our unique environment in a way that benefits current and future generations. We are grappling with some big issues: how DOC and conservation more generally can contribute to raising New Zealand’s wellbeing; honouring our Treaty partnership for the benefit of whānau, hapū and iwi; the extraordinary changing future of the tourism sector in light of the pandemic; restoring our natural beauty while ensuring people can connect to our natural and cultural heritage; and balancing protection and use of our precious resources.

The Policy Unit advises Ministers on the full range of issues the Department faces, looking at the next big challenges.


He kōrero mōu: What we are looking for

We are looking for bright and driven individuals with core government policy experience and a passion for providing high quality advice to fill two positions: one at senior and one at advisor level.

Your ability to work with and through others, both in and out of the department, will be critical in the role. You’ll also need to think through policy problems clearly and impartially, and to communicate your advice in an accessible and compelling way. Experience working in te ao Māori will be an advantage.


Ngā āhuatanga kei a mātou: What’s in it for you:

We offer a range of flexible working options depending on the needs of the role and its work context.

We highly value the new expertise and fresh perspectives brought into the organisation. This is your chance to support our Kaupapa and contribute to our culture of continuous improvement.

Please apply online via the DOC Careers Centre with a CV and cover letter demonstrating how you meet the requirements above.
