Fixed Term to December 2020
About the role – Kōrero mō te tūranga
The Mycoplasma bovis Programme has been operating since July 2018, and we’re working toward a world first eradication of M. bovis. Our environment is dynamic, and continually changing. We’re passionate about what we do and enjoy working with like-minded colleagues who are making a difference. To thrive you will enjoy working at pace, and have a high attention to detail.
The Evaluation and Tasking team leads the investigation of farms under surveillance and is part of the Disease Control management group. We assess farms based on risk, interpret Lab results, and produce evidence which underpins the Ministry for Primary Industries’ commitment to the eradication of M. bovis.
Key to your success will be your ability to support the team to access and utilise the information available to them in order to determine the disease state of farms, and in turn communicate sound guidance as to whether further evaluation & tasking is required. This will ultimately make sure that farms who are under evaluation flow through the process, with minimum disruption and ample communication.
