“We are calling out to those who are interested in Hawaii’s coastal zone to get involved
in implementing our new strategic plan and the State Ocean Resources Management Plan. Here are dynamic opportunities to work in the State’s central Planning Office, leading all Hawaii forward. Join our team.”

Laura H. Thielen
Director, Office of Planning

The State Office of Planning (OP) is recruiting for planning and policy analyst positions in the Coastal Zone Management Program (CZM). The positions will be responsible for implementing strategic directions under the new OP strategic planning process and Hawaii Ocean Resources Management Plan.

The Hawaii Ocean Resources Management Plan advocates new approaches and perspectives to the management of our ocean resources. The plan addresses such critical issues as reducing land-based sources of pollution, mitigating coastal hazards, ensuring public access, promoting beach restoration and coastal land acquisition and advocating place-based, ahupua’a/moku and watershed approaches to the management of natural resources.

CZM facilitates, coordinates and evaluates the implementation of the Hawaii Ocean Resources Management Plan.

OP works on current and pressing issues related to growth, development and preservation in our state with a focus on complex issues that affect or involve more than one agency or level of government.

We are looking for energetic people who want an opportunity to impact Hawaii’s future with good analytical thinking and writing skills and a degree in planning, ocean and coastal resources management, policy or an equivalent field.

The positions are exempt from State civil service requirements but feature all other State fringe benefits including vacation and sick leave, health benefits and retirement.

The salary range is $3,512 to $3,954 per month depending on experience.

Submit a cover letter and resume to Office of Planning, P.O. Box 2359, Honolulu, Hawaii 96804 by January 29, 2007. For further information call the Office of Planning at 587-2808 or 587-2875.
