The Catalyst Group is looking for an experienced RMA planner or policy practitioner to join our team.

We seek expressions of interest from strong critical thinkers who enjoy a fast-paced work environment and are focused on delivering positive outcomes for the environment and our clients. We are looking for someone with a solid planning or policy background, with experience in RMA processes, iwi partnerships, stakeholder consultation, consenting strategy and/or policy analysis and development; and who has an understanding of the value of technical and scientific concepts in informing evidence-based approaches to decision-making.


We are a small, but a creative and high-performing team with expertise across policy, planning, biodiversity, water quality, land management, and conservation science. We work with an active network of collaborators including researchers, lawyers, scientists, and other practitioners to deliver innovative, practical, evidence-driven solutions to complex natural resource management and conservation challenges across Aotearoa. Our clients include iwi, environmental groups, local and central government, and landowners.

Our company has offices in Palmerston North and Wellington and works across the country. While we would prefer someone to join our Wellington team, we are open to your proposal for something different. We pride ourselves on providing a supportive and inclusive culture and flexible work environment, and will consider both full- and part-time prospects.
