After a relatively steady start to the 2018/19 season it looks like the start of 2019 could be a busy time for all. A number of major projects are well underway and are looking to increase the number of personnel in order to fulfil the project’s obligations. One such project is a $700 million motorway refurbishment project in the North of Auckland. A year into construction and the project is going well and running to schedule. As the activity on the project has continued to grow so new staff have been employed to keep up with the increased demands.

The current need is for an experienced civil Project engineer to join the utilities team in the New Year. Some experience in the drainage and utilities space will certainly be beneficial but is not essential this role. There are already a number of specialist members in the team and what is primarily required at the moment is a good engineer to make sure that the work is being carried out to the highest standard and in line with the design plan.

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of four years’ experience with a civil contractor working as a site engineer, section engineer or project engineer. You will have a good understanding of environmental management, QA and health and safety, and be experienced at running a team of employees that includes foreman and operators. There will also be a number of subcontractors involved in the work and so previous experience of managing external teams will also be a must. Other expected attributes include;

  • A degree in civil engineering or related subject
  • Good site based organisational skills
  • Great communication and IT skills
  • A sense of humour and a desire to do a great job

You will be joining one of New Zealand’s premier civil contractors and in return for your experience and hard work you will be paid an excellent salary as part of a package that will include a vehicle and relocation assistance if required. This company has a successful track record of hiring international candidates and is not just looking for someone to fill the immediate position, but for an ambitious engineer who is looking to take their career further.
