About us


  • Advisor – Research and Analysis - Ref. BH-10621


    •  Provide high quality environmental advice and analysis.

    •  Contribute to improving Aotearoa New Zealand’s environment.

    •  Work closely with the Commissioner and a small team of experts.

    The Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment is looking to enhance his team of advisor/research analysts working at the environmental science–policy interface in Aotearoa New Zealand. 
    The Commissioner deals with a broad range of environmental matters. He requires staff with diverse disciplinary backgrounds, including natural, applied or social sciences, engineering, or planning. We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone with experience in the fields of environmental chemistry, climate policy, statistics or quantitative economics.
    You will have completed an advanced degree and have a year or two of practical experience behind you. Your defining attribute is likely to be intellectual curiosity – asking the right question is often more important than providing a ready answer.
    The specific work experience of candidates is less important than their ability to examine and use appropriate frameworks to understand the potential implications of the issue being investigated and to offer pragmatic solutions.

    Candidates need to be comfortable with delivering analysis and engaging with stakeholders. Flawless writing and excellent oral communication skills are essential. 
    The Commissioner relies on the highest standards of independence, intellectual rigour and integrity in his staff. If you have a desire to improve New Zealand’s environment, and possess the above qualities, then please apply.
    Applications close 5pm Monday 11 September 2023
