We want to get to as close as we can to being waste free. If you feel passionate about preserving our environment, and want more than just a job, this could be your next challenge.

You will be responsible for coordinating waste minimisation efforts across the Wairarapa to encourage behaviour change through developing community networks, planning programmes, delivering presentations and coming up with creative solutions. The role requires plenty of enthusiasm, energy and passion – every day will bring new challenges and real opportunities to make a difference.

You will have proven skills in project management, public speaking, research and general administration. You will also have the ability to take ownership of tasks and work independently, whilst maintaining effective working relationships. If you are able to see the big picture, like to think ahead and enjoy problem solving this opportunity could be for you. This is a great chance to work for something that you really believe in.
