Location: Auckland
Attachments: Position description
Applications close: 26 July 2021

Apply Now

Do you want to help protect Aotearoa’s unique natural and cultural heritage on private land for the benefit of all New Zealanders?

Are you resourceful, practical, physically fit, resilient, and able to build lasting partnerships across multiple sectors? Do you want flexible working hours?

Do you have a sound ecological understanding of our native plants and animals and the threats they face from weeds and pests?

If so, an opportunity to represent QEII as a Regional Representative in the Auckland area (North-West and East) has arisen.

QEII is an independent charitable trust that partners with private landowners to protect sites on their land with covenants. A covenant is an agreement between us and a landowner to protect land forever. The landowner continues to own and manage the protected land, and the covenant and protection stays on the land, even when the property is sold to a new owner.

Our Regional Representatives are responsible for providing QEII’s customer facing service. The contracted services include regular monitoring of registered covenants, assessing and preparing covenant proposals, and working closely with landowners to ensure the land is protected in accordance with their intentions. Regional representatives also work closely with key stakeholders in the area, including Auckland Council and local community groups.

You would be engaged as an independent contractor for 850 hours per year, with your hours negotiated on an annual basis. You would work from your home office in Auckland and supply your own vehicle.

Your role would be to:

  • Work with private landowners to protect areas of biodiversity and cultural significance in Auckland.
  • Monitor existing covenants and support landowners to meet their stewardship obligations.
  • Partner with the wider community and key stakeholders to raise awareness, support and improve the biodiversity outcomes for the region.

The services and requirements of the contract are available here.

For more information, please contact us via contracting@qeii.org.nz.

Please send a cover letter addressing key competencies and outlining your skills and experience, together with your current CV to contracting@qeii.org.nz by 5pm Monday 26 July.

Your cover letter is an essential part of our evaluation process, so please use it to highlight how your experience and skills relate to the key requirements for this role.

You must be legally entitled to work in New Zealand to apply.
