Contract Love Your Water Programme Coordinator
Want to travel the country looking after our waterways and developing community capacity? We may just have the dream job for you.
It is no longer enough to be ‘sustainable’. With the rapid decline of biodiversity, water quality and topsoil loss that Aotearoa/New Zealand is suffering, we must engage in ‘regenerative’ practice. This means going further than maintaining the status quo for the environment by actively fixing environmental problems.
The multi award-winning charity Sustainable Coastlines is seeking an adventurous candidate to join us on this mission for the 2019 ‘Love Your Water’ tour as a Programme Coordinator. Get in quick, the deadline for applications is 11pm, Monday 20th May 2019.
The tour – covering 10 regions of the country over 18 weeks – will involve motivating people to engage in positive action for the improvement of waterways through riparian restoration and the creation of reconstructed wetlands.
We will be assisting local groups to develop kaitiakitanga that will enable them to enhance the mauri of their natural environment. We will help them to work with diverse stakeholders, such as schools, volunteers, businesses, community groups and Community Work Offenders in partnership with the Department of Corrections.
Good presentation, public speaking and facilitation skills will be key for this role; you will deliver educational activities to a wide range of audiences. Ideally you will also have a good track-record of establishing and maintaining relationships with key community stakeholders.
The ideal candidate will also have experience in delivering events outdoors, possess a range of practical skills and be willing to get their hands dirty, literally.
If you love our oceans and waterways, and want to work in an exciting, fast-paced non-profit, then we’d love to hear from you.
