List of projects funded by Jobs for Nature.

You can also check with your local and regional council, iwi, Landcare Trust and QEII National Trust.

Job length and skills

Projects run between one to four years, so short-term and longer-term opportunities are available depending on the particular project.

In some cases, you may need to have specialised skills such as project management. However, many projects will provide the necessary training for the work involved. 


Jobs for Nature was designed to provide nature-based jobs to communities and industries that had been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The programme has since adapted to the needs of regional communities including funding projects that target iwi and youth unemployment.
