Resource Management Junior and Senior Roles – Christchurch

Our Christchurch resource management team is on the hunt for both a junior lawyer and an associate or senior associate to join its team. The team is super busy at the moment so this is a great opportunity for you if you're looking for challenging work that will take your skills to the next level. You'll be working closely with a senior associate and associate in the Christchurch office, with support from the national resource management teams and the wider Christchurch office.

For the junior role, preferably you'll have some resource management or litigation experience. You'll be a bright spark, have a great attitude and work ethic, and be excited by getting stuck in to some really interesting work.    

For the more senior role, you'll have proven experience in resource management law and preferably local government law, including particular experience in RMA planning (either plan change or district plan review work). We'd like you to have advocacy experience and, if we're lucky, this advocacy experience would be in planning or consenting/development or construction work before local authorities and the Environment Court.  As well as these specific skills, we want someone who's fabulous at client relationships, who's going to stand behind their advice and who has the ability to provide clients with efficient and innovative service every time.

If you fit the bill for either of these roles, you can be sure you'll be working in a growing and supportive team that will make coming to work a whole lot of fun.
