Looking to step up in your procurement career?

We are looking for an experienced procurement professional to join a small centralised team providing support to procurement activities throughout the Department. This is an important role within the Department – effective procurement delivers conservation.


This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your skills and provide centre-led procurement support within a medium sized government organisation with the aim of delivering efficient and effective outcomes for nationally distributed staff.


This is a hands-on role touching on all areas of the procurement cycle from planning to contract management. It is a fantastic opportunity to work on unique and interesting projects: iconic tracks and walks, scientific surveys, weed and pest control, maintenance of historic assets and construction of huts and bridges to name but a few.


To be successful in this role you will have the following skills and experience:

  • Well-developed communication and influencing skills
  • A strong customer focus
  • Experience providing sound procurement advice across a range of stakeholders and categories
  • The ability to adapt in a complex and dynamic environment
  • Experience with government procurement policy, rules and guidelines is preferred
  • Studying towards a CIPS qualification (or a desire to do so), or ideally a minimum of 3 years' procurement experience


Eligibility to work in New Zealand is mandatory, including a valid work visa covering the whole period of employment if applying internationally.

Please apply online at the DOC Careers centre.  Applications must include a cover letter, CV and evidence of the required capabilities as per the role description.


For any queries, please contact Paul Simonsen,, quoting vacancy 100/5404.  


Applications close at 5pm on Tuesday, 29 October 2019.

DOC is committed to a diverse workforce that represents the communities we serve, and to creating an inclusive workplace culture.
