Sick of the “same old”? How can working in regional offices supercharge your career?
In some cases, spending time in a smaller branch can supercharge a career. In larger centres you may feel there is not enough variety, whereas when you move out to regional offices, the requirement to be more autonomous and skilled across a wider range of services and experiences becomes almost a necessity. It could even simply come down to cost of living!

  • Lead and/or input into local, regional and national projects
  • Preparation and assessment of RMA applications (consents, permits and designations)
  • Planning feasibility and technical assessments;
  • Leading and/or contributing of specialist inputs such as to Assessment of Environmental Effects;
