Job vacancies

Environment Court – Environment Commissioner – Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch

The Attorney-General is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified persons for appointment as an Environment Commissioner based in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch.   There is some flexibility in terms of where the successful candidate may reside, and a part time role may be considered.

The Environment Court is a specialist Court with jurisdiction over environmental and resource management matters.

While familiarity with the Resource Management Act would be an advantage, it is not a pre-requisite and most importantly you will bring strong mediation and decision-making experience.

Importantly, you will possess excellent communication skills, mental agility, self-confidence and be able to work effectively with colleagues and the registry that supports the work of the Court.

It is expected that any successful candidate will either have, or will be committed to undertaking steps to enable familiarity with the appropriate use of Tikanga Māori and the use of Te Reo within the Court.

An application pack for the position may be obtained from the Ministry of Justice website http://justice.govt.nz/about/statutory-vacancies

Applications close at 5pm on Wednesday 24 February.
