Environmental Manager

Leading our environmental performance function with a small team of 3 environmental planners, you will provide expert advice and support to our regional operations teams to drive improvement across all aspects of our environmental performance.

Forestry Professionals

Ernslaw has forests right across this region and we are looking to grow the talent in our team to help us achieve better outcomes for our business, industry and the planet! Our industry is working through how we can transform our operational processes and Ernslaw is at the leading edge! We are actively involved in industry research, trialling new technologies and practices and we are working with stakeholders to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes. To help us on this journey, we are looking for three capable people to join our team in the following roles: • Harvesting Supervisor • Harvest Planner/Engineer • Forester

Senior Harvesting Supervisor

We are looking for an experienced Harvesting Supervisor to join our Southern North Island region and partner with our crews to achieve our regional goals. While strong knowledge and experience of harvesting operations is key, balancing this with a real focus on safety and environmental management will support your success in this role. Working alongside our extended team of harvesting contractors, you will provide operational support, influence change and foster a culture of innovation and learning.

Entry Level Forester

We are seeking applications for entry level Foresters to join our Southern North Island team. You will be supporting our silviculture operations ensuring that we are employing best practice methodology to maximise the value of our investments.

Engineering Manager

Ernslaw is looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to join our East Coast team. We have a big challenge in front of us with highly sensitive geology, important land use, environmental and social considerations and a committed focus on health and safety. With the big minds focused on what changes need to happen, and with innovation and creative solutions being at the forefront of how we operate, we are throwing down the gauntlet. If you are up for it, the rewards are many. Reporting to the Regional Manager, you will provide strategic, operational, and technical leadership for the planning and construction of a road network through our forest estate. The East Coast business produces 500,000+ tonnes of fibre per annum and we need quality infrastructure to get that to the port, domestic mills and future bioenergy processing facilities.
