We want more good people to come and do great things with us!

We love where we live. That's why we work so hard to look after our region and the people who live and work in the Waikato region. 

Our work is as diverse as the region we care for; from the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu. We've got ambitious goals and there are some tricky issues, but that's what makes it so interesting.

These roles focuses on building partnerships with land owners and stakeholders on projects relating to soil conservation, water quality and bio-diversity protection and enhancement. 

If you have a background in land management, erosion control, riparian management or bio-diversity protection and enjoy working with farmers, community groups and stakeholders then we would like to speak with you!
