We are the carers for Northland's environment and community. Are you one of us?

A few things you should know about Northland Regional Council? we aren't about parking tickets, roading, building consents or any of that stuff! Our work is ultimately about working together to care for our region's incredible environment and many communities, matching our skills and resources with the vision and aspirations of our people.

Toit? te whenua, toit? te moana, toit? te tangata. If the land is well, if the sea is well, the people will thrive.

The opportunity awaits...

For someone who can write great story content, manage digital media channels, organise meaningful engagement events and develop collateral to achieve the ambitious goal of becoming predator-free. This work will involve working in partnership with hap?/whanau, the community, and other agencies and organisations.

The diversity of this role makes for a fascinating and challenging range of communication and engagement opportunities. Interact one on one with our stakeholders, develop audience-appropriate communication collateral, run events and engagement activities, coordinate media releases, prepare compelling content for a range of communication mediums, and provide effective marketing and communications advice

By joining our Predator Free team, you'll have the ability to deliver high-quality outcomes across varying social landscapes, while supporting an ambitious goal that will bring environmental, social and economic benefits to our region.

Do you have what it takes?

We are looking for someone who can bring the following to our diverse talent pool:

  • A team player
  • The ability to relate well to all kinds of people and build constructive and effective relationships
  • A commitment to continuous improvement and innovation
  • Cultural empathy and awareness
  • Excellent time and task management skills

We don't just want someone that CAN do the job, we want someone who has the DRIVE to do a GREAT job and has a passion for what our organisation and values stand for. That's why at NRC, we understand that sometimes the right person doesn't 'tick all the boxes'. If you don't fit the mould exactly, but truly believe you can help contribute to the achievement of our predator-free goal, then tell us. We'll consider it.

What's in it for you?

We'll pay you to do a job you love, and we also care about our staff. Our team has grown a lot over the years, but our small organisation culture is still here. We celebrate our efforts, share wedding/baby pictures, host many shared morning teas, enjoy outings, annual fishing competitions and brunches, and have a lot of fun together. We have an active social club that comes up with great ideas.

We also walk the talk when it comes to flexible working. We have remote workers, home workers, part-time workers, condensed weeks and more. We support our staff during the good and hard times, but if you're also interested in the tangible stuff, we have that too - check out our benefits here.
