For over 45 years Pan Pac has been growing, processing and delivering quality radiata products to international markets. With a permanent workforce of over 400 staff, we recognise our people are our most valuable asset and in doing so, we aim to develop and retain highly skilled staff. We believe respect is the cornerstone of good business and we’re committed to providing quality service and product.

We currently have an opportunity for a GIS Analyst to join our Forests Division.

A geographic information system (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing, and analysing data. Rooted in the science of geography, GIS integrates many types of data. It analyses spatial location and organises layers of information into visualisations using maps and 3D scenes.

The purpose of the GIS Analyst role is to manage the Esri ArcGIS applications and associated spatial data for Pan Pac. You’ll ensure the system is configured to meet the ongoing needs of the business and the quality of the information is being maintained to a high standard – in turn, this ensures we’re achieving our regulatory requirements and business objectives.

The successful applicant will use their skills in combination with ArcGIS to analyse and visualise spatial data and deliver services that provide meaningful insight for our business.

The right person for the role will ideally have the following:

  • Preferably a tertiary qualification in GIS
  • Extensive knowledge of cartography
  • A power user of ESRI ArcGIS desktop, some exposure to ArcPro would be desirable while having a good understanding of the associated Esri ecosystem of applications
  • Good knowledge of ESRI ArcSDE and the Microsoft SQL server environment
  • Experience managing LiDAR and Metadata
  • Proficient in Esri Model Builder and Python Scripting
  • Experience in the use of ATLAS GeoMaster
  • Good understanding of Remote Sensing and Aerial Photography technologies
  • Previous experience in Forestry

This is a permanent position working flexible hours – Monday to Friday, 8am to 4.30pm.
