Wellington and Auckland based

Full Time

Hill Young Cooper is a New Zealand-owned resource management and planning consultancy with offices in central Auckland and Wellington. While we are primarily looking for an astute planner to be part of our Wellington-based team, suitable candidates for the Auckland-based office will also be considered.

We provide expert policy advice and carry out research and analysis on a wide range of district and regional planning, infrastructure and resource management issues; prepare and review resource consents, notices of requirement and plan changes; and act as Independent Hearing Commissioners. The position will involve working alongside the company's Directors and Senior Consultants on a diverse range of urban, infrastructure and natural resource-based projects.

Our preferred applicant will have experience in the preparation and review of plan provisions and resource consents; be solution-orientated; enjoy working with a diverse range of clients and colleagues and be able to progress projects on their own initiative while also developing their own workload. The position will likely involve a mix of consent and policy-orientated work.  

You will have a tertiary qualification in resource management/planning and will have already demonstrated your capability through experience in a range of resource management projects and environments. Applicants should have at least three years experience and must have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa. 

The position is on a full time basis. We operate a flexible, family friendly workplace. 

We offer exposure to a wide range of resource management and environmental policy work throughout the country, a strong commitment to continuing professional development, competitive remuneration depending on your experience and competence, and a generous, engaging and enabling company culture.  If this interests you, send us your CV and covering letter to or to the address below.
