Regional Coordinator - Otago


An exciting opportunity has come up to develop and implement a range of sustainable land and water management initiatives, through community engagement across the Otago Region.

The focus of the Otago Regional Coordinator is to support the delivery of the NZ Landcare Trust’s work programme in the Otago region, across four broad areas:
• Working with regional councils and industry bodies to support adoption of good management practices (GMPs) on farms and across catchments
• Promoting and supporting catchment management
• Facilitating knowledge-sharing and promoting innovative practice
• Supporting landcare based community environmental groups

The ideal candidate will have a depth of experience working with farmers and/or communities, preferably with an environmental restoration, nutrient management, or farm systems focus. Project management skills, facilitation, and networking and communication skills are key requirements of the role.

This is a part-time role (4 days per week) offering flexibility, a great working environment, full support from a fantastic and innovative team and your chance to really make the mark on New Zealand’s land and water quality for generations to come.
