Are you an expert in the RMA, the coastal environment and aquiculture? Tasman District Council is looking for someone to be our new coastal consenting expert. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a passionate team who are committed to improving an already vibrant and innovative community.
Reporting to the Resource Consents Team Leader, your primary role will be processing resource consent applications and monitoring coastal marine activities, particularly aquaculture, coastal protection works and moorings, as well as other natural resources. You will also provide expert technical advice on coastal management under the Resource Management Act 1991, and provide technical leadership to the natural resources team.
In return for your hard work and dedication, you will receive an attractive base salary of $75,000 - $90,000, commensurate to your experience. Council is also offering relocation assistance of up to $10,000!
There is also a customisable benefits package including:
- Up to 5 weeks of annual leave;
- Additional leave to be taken during the Christmas closedown period;
- Enrolment into Kiwisaver and/or the Local Government superannuation scheme;
- Flexible working arrangements;

Council encourages its staff to enhance their capabilities and achieve high levels of performance, and as such ongoing personal and professional development and opportunities for career development will be provided.
Ideal candidates will hold a tertiary qualification in Science, Engineering, Planning or a relevant field, combined with a minimum 5 years' of relevant experience in a similar role. However, appointment at an intermediate or graduate planner level will be considered for the right candidate. You will have exceptional communication and interpersonal skills. You will also be confident in your ability to work autonomously with minimal supervision on a variety of tasks and projects, and effectively manage competing deadlines whilst staying flexible enough to deal with urgent situations as required.
You will have demonstrated knowledge of Resource Management Act requirements, including consent processing, compliance and plan making, as well as a sound understanding of contaminant and discharge practices and related law including the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act and Fisheries Act. Additionally, knowledge and understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Tikanga Maori will be highly regarded.
