Our 3 Waters Team is a close-knit group of engineering professionals who pride themselves on close collaboration, high performance and continuous improvement. The team is well-resourced and exists within a supportive assets group – providing plenty of opportunities for professional development.
As Senior Project Engineer based in our Oamaru office, you’ll be responsible for leading delivery of the 3 Waters Design and Construction Portfolio by ensuring projects assigned from the team’s capital works programme are cost-effectively designed, planned, procured, constructed and commissioned.
You’ll get the chance to grow and mentor a Portfolio team delivering projects through to completion – and to enjoy the satisfaction that comes from being part of an organisation that makes a significant contribution to the wellbeing of Waitaki’s community.
You’ll be an experienced and qualified project manager, ideally with specific expertise in the 3 waters sector, with experience in successfully managing and mentoring staff. You’ll have proven contract management skills – including contract document preparation, tender evaluation and contractor supervision. Your excellent communication, leadership and relationship management skills will be vital in your day-to-day dealings with your team, contractors, key stakeholders, industry professionals, and the public.
