Introduction

The Department of Conservation has told its staff of about 1800 today that it will be looking to shed just over 100 jobs across the organisation in coming months.

The Department of Conservation (DOC) has told its staff of about 1800 today that it will be looking to shed just over 100 jobs across the organisation in coming months.

DOC says the move comes as part of on-going steps to re-organise the department’s work to better direct resources to its conservation work in the field.

The jobs to be shed will come from largely office-based support functions in DOC’s National Office in Wellington and its regional conservancy offices.

DOC says it will be working with staff and their unions to identify exactly what positions will be affected over the next three months and the positions are expected to be dis-established towards the end of the year.
