We put a lot of time and thought into making Duncan Cotterill a great firm to work for – a firm where you enjoy work, you are challenged, you are supported, and you achieve.

Our Resource Management team are specialist lawyers who advise across all sectors – rural, coastal, marine, industrial, and urban. The team deal with a varied range of work from infrastructure and development projects, planning and policy, resource consent and plan change applications, environmental due diligence, enforcement, and risk assessment in the commercial and rural space.

Our clients include public sector bodies, local government entities, and well-known New Zealand businesses in the agriculture and tourism sectors through to property developers and family farms. These are successful, ambitious and driven enterprises, they think hard about what they’re doing, and they value that we do the same on their behalf.

We’re looking for a talented solicitor/ senior solicitor to join our busy team. Ideally you will have some experience with resource management processes.
