The government has committed to work with stakeholders to plant one billion trees over ten years. This cross government programme will play a pivotal role in New Zealand's response to climate change, along with providing opportunities to support regional and Māori economic development, and encourage biodiversity and sustainable land use change.
The first phase of this programme involves developing quality advice to government on the options available to encourage new planting of a variety of native and exotic tree species; supporting existing commercial forestry; and increasing permanent native forest cover. To achieve the aims of this exciting and high-profile programme, our sector policy team is recruiting for a number of experienced policy practitioners to develop this advice.
What we are looking for
We are looking for policy analysts and senior policy analysts with strong critical thinking skills, high standards and the drive to provide leading-edge advice. If you have excellent communication and presentation skills and experience leading large pieces of policy work this could be the role for you.
Experience in the primary industries, economics or forestry will be highly regarded. However most importantly, you will be comfortable under pressure, enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, a natural relationship manager and action orientated.
If this sounds like you we would love to hear from you
