About this role | Mō tēnei tūrangi mahi
Our organisation is growing, and we are working collaboratively across the organisation to deliver on our Statement of Intent.

About us | Mō mātou
We are incredibly lucky to have a wealth of natural resources at our doorstep – good access to water, productive land and a rich biodiversity. Over a thousand years, our culture, society and our economy have been built on the back of our environment and, for many, it's why they want to live, work and visit here.
But we are nudging up against environmental limits. Pressure is mounting on our waterways, marine environments and land. A growing population, booming agribusiness sector and growing tourism industry mean if we keep taking out more than we put back in, we are heading for irreversible damage. We need to care for and invest in our natural resources, understanding the consequences of our decisions, and making wise choices that will benefit future generations.
Our job as an organisation is second to none; making sure that our amazing corner of the world stays that way. In a 100 years' time we want to be the most liveable place imaginable, backed by evidence of our natural capital and what it takes to achieve sustainable prosperity. The whole country will be behind us. And it is us – a collection of passionate individuals – that will make it happen.
The Ministry's purpose - He taiao tōnui mō ngā reanga katoa - a flourishing environment for every generation.
- a flexible by default approach to support your work-life balance
- agile working, allowing you variety and challenges across the organisation as we work as ‘One MfE'
- generous leave entitlements
- training to competently and effectively engage with Māori as our Treaty Partner, this includes te reo me ona tikanga Māori courses
- active social club and employee networks, including a Māori staff network
- opportunities for development and education.
A key priority for the Ministry is Te Ao Māori. This means we work with our Treaty partner to advance Māori priorities for the environment and for environmental success. We will be confident and coordinated in our ongoing engagement with Māori and lead the natural resources system in engaging for success with tangata whenua. We will grow our capability and capacity to accurately reflect Māori views in our work. An organisational priority is that we accurately reflect Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Te Ao Maori into our everyday work, by living our Te Ao Hurihuri Strategy through capability and capacity building.
