Coordinator for the Coastcare Programme (East Coast)
Waikato Regional Council and Thames Coromandel District Council are seeking registrations of interest for a Coastcare Coordinator in the east coast of the Coromandel.
The Coastal Restoration Coordinator (East Coast) contract will drive and support coastal restoration programmes, by collaborating with Iwi, coastal restoration groups and the public. The role will provide technical advice for restoration activities, coordinate working bees and plant orders with community groups, and place orders for plants and other related materials for the Coastcare programme, while providing regular progress reports to key contacts at Thames Coromandel District Council (TCDC) and Waikato Regional Council (WRC).
In this role you will promote the Coastcare and Coastal Restoration programmes and will work with a broad range of stakeholders, including WRC & TCDC staff/contractors, Coastcare coordinators, local iwi, rural and suburban communities, pest plant control contractors, nurseries, and other local government representatives.
Initially this role will be for 27 hours, but it can lead to full-time for the right person.
What we need
• Honesty, enthusiasm, accountability, respect and teamwork are considered core competencies for all WRC and TCDC Contractors.
• The nature of this work means that the contractor may need to occasionally work evenings and weekends to fit in with community group needs (attend group meetings etc.).
• Applicants will need a moderate level of fitness to engage in working bees and other activities
Deadline for questions is 9 August at midday.
Deadline for Expressions of Interest is 16 August at midday.
Our Trust is looking for a treasurer, who can keep our Trust on track to seeing the majority of New Zealand’s coast restored and sustainably managed using indigenous species. This is a volunteer position that would suit an accountant (practising or retired) or someone with significant accounting experience.
Much of the Trust’s work is project-based and reliant on contestable funding. We need assistance with seeking out and applying for funding and for someone to work with our administrator to help fulfill our legal requirements.
As recipient of this email, you will be familiar with our Trust, but if you want to forward this to someone who is not, please refer them to our website to give them an idea of what our Trust is about: coastalrestorationtrust.org.nz/about-us/
Our administrator does the majority of our accounting work. The treasurer is needed to oversee our finances and to make sure we comply with legal requirements among other things.
We offer a great team to work with, paid travel, accommodation and meals for our meetings and conferences, and the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference.
Expressions of interest close on 28 August, but may be extended if needed.
