Introduction

Most of the jobs will be advertised through our partners who are leading these initiatives. You can also check the career pages of your local and regional council, iwi, Landcare Trust and QEII National Trust.

We are working to identify projects that will produce great outcomes for job creation and conservation. We are also using criteria to match jobs and projects to regions that are most impacted by COVID-19 and the downturn in international visitors.

Job length and skills

Most of the jobs are being designed to be temporary, with a higher number of people cycling or rotating through them until their previous employment/business recovers.

You’ll need to either have specialised skills such as project management or more general skills such as pest control, planting and weeding. In some cases, we are offering training to help upskill potential workers.

Where to find jobs

Most of the jobs will be advertised through our partners who are leading these initiatives. You can also check the career pages of your local and regional council, iwi, Landcare Trust and QEII National Trust.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for work, check out the government’s new jobs website Connected. Or, if you need financial help until you find a job, Work and Income may be able to help.
