The Department of Conservation Te Papa Atawhai is a great place to work for anyone who is passionate about nature and the environment. As the government agency charged with conserving Aotearoa New Zealand’s natural and historic heritage, we are responsible for caring for the land, water and our native species.
We have team members spread throughout the country who work hard to ensure that Papatūānuku can thrive. They perform a huge range of tasks, from specialists undertaking ground-breaking projects through to support staff who enable our mahi; and rangers operating at the forefront of conservation.
The work we do impacts the people of Aotearoa New Zealand and our many visitors and will have continued and far-reaching effects for generations to come. Our commitment to being an honourable Treaty Partner and collaboration with local iwi, community groups and businesses is critical to setting the foundations for future conservation success.
We support flexible working, and a transparent and collaborative culture, as well as career development and training opportunities. If you are interested in joining a team of people who love what they do, find out more about a career with the Department of Conservation.
