- The role can be Wellington or Christchurch based.

You will be positive and personable, and good at engaging with Māori, local communities, stakeholders and colleagues to get the job done.

You will bring:
- Strong writing skills & attention to detail as you will be involved in providing advice to Ministers.
- Experience as an adviser or analyst in a resource management, regulatory, or policy role within regional or central government.
- Demonstrated ability to establish and maintain collaborative relationships.
