This exciting initiative will assist with the implementation of water quality improvement by facilitating landowners, community groups, iwi and hapū to undertake projects that contribute to sediment reduction in the Kaipara Moana.

Make a key environmental difference by joining Kaipara Moana Remediation Programme and being part of the Catchment Remediation team led by the Amo-Rauora Kōawa (manager).

For an Advisor role, among other things, you will be:

  • Providing advice/technical support/liaison in the promotion of good farming and land management practices that lead to sediment reduction

  • Attending relevant hui, meetings and public events as needed representing the programme

  • Managing remediation grants funds from initial fund application through to final sign-off

  • Undertaking specific project management as required

To be successful, you are likely to have:

  • Experience in environmental and/or land management projects which have had a focus on achieving water quality improvement and sediment reduction outcomes

  • Fund and contractor management skills

This role sits within the newly established Kaipara Maurikura - the operations unit specifically set up to deliver the Kaipara Moana Remediation Programme outcomes. The Programme itself has the overall aim of returning the Mauri to the Moana by significantly reducing the amount of sediment going into the Moana.

This work will make a key difference to Aotearoa's largest harbour and the people who live around it!! For more information or a job description and application form contact Gaylene Harris at RMC Ltd at gaylene.harris@rmcnz.co.nz.
