  • GIS system technical role and so much more!
  • Fabulous growth potential in this fast growing unique organisation
  • Parnell office location with opportunities to get out into the field
New Zealand Carbon Farming is one of the biggest contributors to New Zealand's climate change response. The organisation's mission is to grow trees to preserve the planet.
As owner and manager of the country's largest privately-owned conservation estate of permanent forests, over the last decade, New Zealand Carbon Farming's trees have captured more than 20 million tonnes of carbon – the equivalent of taking every car off New Zealand's roads for a whole year.
As result of rapid growth, they now seek to appoint a new member to their team who will play a pivotal role in the company's ongoing success.
The company was established by like-minded people, who wanted to make a meaningful difference to the global climate crisis. As the organisation has grown, it has attracted a growing team of professional, passionate and talented people who love the idea of going to work to directly help the environment.
Operating in an evolving regulatory environment, the business is dynamic and responsive, setting challenging and demanding goals, and responding quickly to new opportunities to make major improvements to the climate and the environment. New Zealand Carbon Farming is also a commercially successful company. This is enormously positive for New Zealand, because those profits are reinvested into growing more trees to help the country meet its climate change commitments.
This is a rare opportunity to join a unique organisation experiencing rapid growth and be part of their exciting journey. You are only limited by your attitude, as the opportunities for development as the company grows, are endless.
As a Senior GIS Analyst in their team you play a pivotal role that touches nearly all parts of the business from initial analysis determining suitability of parcels of land, then assisting Land Managers with all operational planning as well as ongoing data capture from the field, and assessment for the Emissions Trading Scheme. To be successful in this environment you will need to be comfortable working in a fluid environment where external factors often impact, while at the same time you need to have an eye for detail and accuracy.
This is a new role driven by growth and the need to bring additional expertise to the team. The company brought their GIS system in house in 2018, appointed their first analyst in 2019, and their second in 2020. New Zealand Carbon Farming is still working with an outside agency for support in managing this programme, however the time is now right to bring more of this expertise in-house.
To be successful in this role you will bring:     
  • a strong tertiary qualification in Environmental Science, Geography or GIS or closely related field with a focus on geo spatial applications    
  • excellent database and data management skills   
  • applied user of GIS systems   
  • experience with ArcGIS/QGIS, SQL and R/Python   
  • strong stakeholder management experience   
  • exceptional analytical capability    
  • advanced skills in Microsoft office including Excel  
  • a willingness to take initiative, deal with issues never presented before  
  • outstanding planning capability with a strong eye for detail along with the ability to be flexible when required. 
Rarely do roles like this come to market, where you are part of something which is making a difference to the future while also having the opportunity to develop and grow. Do you feel you have what it takes – apply online today or call me to discuss - Mark Charles 021722879
