Environmental Monitoring Officer/Senior Environmental Monitoring Officer
Richmond, New Zealand
Do you have at least 5 years' experience collecting hydrological and other environmental data?
Based in Richmond we are seeking an experienced person with a can-do attitude to join an Environmental Monitoring team focused on collecting good data across a range of programmes and projects to support Council and the wider community. This group collects a variety of environmental data in accordance with National Environmental Monitoring Standards, including rainfall, groundwater, sea level, river flow, air quality and water quality.
Ideally, you will be capable of taking responsibility for the design, construction and operation of monitoring assets, utilising a wide assortment of electronic equipment to collect information. This role will have equal amounts of field and office-based work so you'll also carry out data processing, quality assurance, and have involvement in data analysis. Accurate data is required for resource management, water allocation, compliance, engineering design and flood warning, with information being used locally and nationally.
We work in a variety of environments and terrains which can be physically demanding and challenging, so you need to be a strong swimmer, confident around rivers and working at heights. This role would suit someone who enjoys seeing a job well done by paying attention to detail and utilising problem-solving skills and initiative, while being an organised individual who enjoys working both independently and as part of a team. Mentoring capability and a National Diploma in Field Hydrology or a degree and practical experience will also give you a significant advantage.
If you want to be part of a team that encourages sharing of knowledge and resources and has interesting projects ahead of it and want to do a job where you can make a difference to Tasman's environment, check out the position descriptions available on our website www.tasman.govt.nz and apply today.
