  • Meaningful, complex  and varied work portfolio
  • Working in a collaborative environment


We are looking for a highly motivated and innovative Resource Advisor to join our Team, where we pride ourselves in providing a fantastic experience to our customers, and to meaningfully contribute to achieving great environmental outcomes for our region.

We believe that the Greater Wellington region is a great place to live, work and play, and we take our role of protecting and enhancing the region very seriously. We have a friendly supportive culture with people who are passionate about doing great work for our extraordinary region.

We are committed to appointing candidates that show real potential, and offer a supportive environment with challenging work.  If you are an immediate advisor this is a great opportunity to grow your experience. If you display an exemplary background and experience, you will be considered for appointment at a Senior level.

As an experienced practitioner, you will be adept at balancing the interests of a wide range of customers and stakeholders to come up with pragmatic solutions to complex resource management challenges.  These solutions will contribute to GWRC's community outcomes of a strong economy; healthy environment; and a connected, resilient and engaged community. Naturally, you will be a skilled and confident communicator who can build strong and enduring relationships with our customers and stakeholders in a range of settings.

You will be part of a team who deals with a variety of regulatory work with plenty of opportunities including leading complex projects across the entire resource management process, from pre-application advice right through to compliance and enforcement.

To succeed in this role you will have:

  • Deep expertise and practical experience in the RMA and planning disciplines
  • A broad perspective which may come from the breadth and depth of your experience which may include experience working with councils, central government, private practice/consulting firms, community groups, iwi or volunteers
  • A collaborative working style, with experience mentoring and sharing your ideas and expertise with others
  • Excellent interpersonal, engagement and relationship management skills
  • Personal attributes including resilience, flexibility, with an ability to work in ambiguity
  • An ability to manage multiple projects efficiently, to prioritise competing commitments and proactively manage customer expectations
  • An analytical mind to critically review reports, plans and other technical documents, and to suggest improvements to our practices
  • An ability to remain focussed on outcomes rather than process
  • An understanding of how to influence behaviour change
  • A proven track record of successfully delivering to customers
