Who we are looking for?

We have a great opportunity for a Senior Taiao, Consultant to join us.

An ideal candidate, you would have a tertiary qualification in geography, policy, planning resource management, sustainability or a similar field, ideally a minimum of five years' experience in the environment sector and with strong experience working with environmental legislation. It is required to have experience working for and with Māori communities, Pā people are encouraged to apply! A knowledge of tikanga Māori is expected and having Te Reo Māori would be a further skill that would be valued by Poipoia.

Why Join Poipoia?

We are a whānau friendly organisation, our head office is based in Turangi, but for the right person location can be fully negotiable, as are our working hours. We are currently establishing a Wellington office. We work with amazing clients all over the country, doing work that would suit people who live with a purpose to serve our Iwi and hapu, and we are at the forefront of designing planning, policy and regeneration projects for whānau, whenua and wai. Our work is dynamic, exciting and innovative, and we support a wider kaupapa of looking after our Taiao through Mātauranga Māori.
