This is a statutory focused role delivering statutory support to the Director Operations for the Eastern South Island. To succeed it will be important to understand the value the role can contribute to the wider Conservation story and the benefit conservation can provide to all New Zealanders.


This role is part of the Eastern South Island Regional Leadership Team. You will need to have the ability to be both a great team member and team leader.


In the Eastern South Island there is strong emphasis on team work not only within the leadership team but with and alongside the six Districts teams of the Region. The strong application of systems, symbols and behaviours which support teams to achieve the goals of the Region will be essential.


This is a position where your background in statutory management will put you in prime position to support decision makers to use good judgment, co-ordinate resources, and improve internal and external relationships in the exercise of our statutory decision-making role.


Your excellent people skills and strong drive for results through collaboration will see you build significant relationships with our Planning, Permissions and Land Managers to ensure full context is being considered for decision making by the Director, Operations.


You will also work closely with Ngai Tahu as our treaty partner shared service providers, local government and external stakeholders to support customer-focussed decisions. A sound appreciation and understanding of value exchange opportunities with community groups, iwi and business is required.


Your written and oral communications skills are of the highest standard and will assist you in implementing identified improvements in statutory processes to drive efficiencies.


To support you, there will be a network of eight Statutory Managers across the country providing a wider strategic context to decisions being made within each region.


This is an exciting new role where you have an opportunity to significantly contribute to growing conservation.
