Can you get others engaged and active in supporting conservation? Are you keen to do your bit to protect New Zealand and encourage students and teachers to see the value of conservation and get involved?

We are looking for a committed and energetic person to provide input to the DOC/Project Janszoon education programme and help maintain and further develop school and student-group partnerships that promote conservation in Abel Tasman National Park.

You will be based in Motueka and work as part of a dynamic partnership in a role specifically focused on growing conservation awareness through working with students, teachers, iwi and other partners.

This is an exciting position with development opportunities. The ability to work flexible hours at times will be required, including working outside of normal office hours.
