Compliance Support Coordinator - Biosecurity

At the Otago Regional Council (ORC), our mission is ‘for our future’. We’re here to protect and enhance the environment and enable our communities to do the same. To be sure we can deliver on our responsibilities, we are evolving as an organisation, and we’re not overstating when we say we have some really big targets to reach. We need the right people, in the right roles, to help us to get there.

The Opportunity

Managing the environment in Otago is no mean feat and we need someone who prides themselves on their attention to detail but who can equally help us navigate the direction of travel. If you are passionate about creating and maintaining high quality processes to support environment outcomes, then we would love to hear from you.

This newly created role will help us restore and enhance Otago’s ecosystems through implementing biosecurity compliance best practice and enabling and supporting enforcement activities carried out by the Biosecurity Team under the Regional Pest Management Plan (RPMP) 2019-2029. The role will also maintain the integrity of specific Biosecurity systems and manage monthly key performance indicator reporting, statistics and statuses on the biosecurity compliance programme.

We think Otago’s a pretty special place. It covers a vast area – the third largest local government region in New Zealand. Those who call Otago home enjoy access to mountains, coastal lowlands, dramatic rivers and wild beaches. Our environment here is part of who we are, and at ORC, we work each day to look after it.

If you share this passion and can align your skills and experience to what we’ve outlined above, please apply now!
