Mountains to Sea Manager

  • Freshwater and marine conservation focus
  • Exciting new leadership opportunity
  • Christchurch, Wellington or Hamilton location

 

Role

 

The Department of Conservation (DOC) is looking for an experienced leader for the newly formed Mountains to Sea team.  The team of nine, which is geographically spread across New Zealand, forms a part of the Aquatic Unit within DOC’s Biodiversity Group.

 

Your role will include forming the identity, purpose and work priorities of the team and enabling integration of work across freshwater and marine domains.

 

The Mountains to Sea team will drive biodiversity restoration through a strategic and collaborative approach to a variety of work programmes such as river catchment programmes, southern species and migratory species management programmes and cross-cutting strategic system work. This role is an opportunity to work on some of the most complex and challenging conservation issues facing New Zealand.  

 

Candidate

 

To be successful in the role you will need to demonstrate strong leadership behaviours, and have experience in strategic thinking and planning, financial management and programme management, and an understanding of iwi engagement and working in partnership.  You will have proven experience in building strong, collaborative and cohesive teams and have a track record of motivating and inspiring teams to perform at an optimum level. You will also need to have good knowledge of, or a strong interest, in freshwater and/or marine conservation.

 

While a science background would be advantageous, it is not essential for this role.

 

Organisation

 

The Department of Conservation received a significant funding boost in 2018 of $181.6 million over four years.   This is one of the biggest funding increases that DOC has ever received, and it will benefit New Zealand’s native plants, wildlife and natural landscapes.  $76 million of this funding is for biodiversity initiatives across land, freshwater and marine ecosystems, which means that DOC’s Biodiversity Group is expanding in order to deliver its ambitious new work programme.  This new role is part of that expansion.
