Adviser Research & Analysis

Reference ID 4737

  • Provide high-quality environmental advice and analysis.
  • Strategically contribute to improving our environment.
  • Work closely with the Commissioner.

The Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment is looking for a new Adviser.

In line with the Commissioner's work, an Adviser's role is wide ranging, so your disciplinary background could include one (or ideally a combination) of natural or applied sciences, engineering, law, or planning. You may have recently completed an advanced degree, or even have a year or two of practical experience behind you. In either case, your defining attribute is likely to be intellectual curiosity - asking the right question is often more important than providing a ready answer.

The Commissioner's work is by nature complex and interdisciplinary, so if you are as comfortable with data as you are with speaking to policy makers, as at home with scientists as you are in writing concise and comprehensible text, you'll find the Commissioner's office a richly rewarding place to be.

The Commissioner relies on maintaining the highest standards of independence, intellectual rigour and integrity in his staff. If you have a desire to improve New Zealand's environment, and possess the qualities the Commissioner is seeking, then please apply.
