Customers are at the heart of everything for us here at the Waimakariri District Council, and as such, we promise to be professional, approachable and solutions-focused when providing for our community. The Waimakariri District is one of the fastest growing districts in New Zealand and the third largest, by population, in the South Island. This provides a unique set of challenges and a diverse portfolio of issues to address.

Just 25 minutes north of Christchurch, the Waimakariri District provides an exceptional range of rural and urban lifestyles.

With seaside towns, attractive new subdivisions and lifestyle country blocks, your choice of living environment is readily available and affordable in the Waimakariri.

The successful applicant will lead a motivated team of engineers, working with industry leaders, engineering consultants and contractors to deliver on the capital works and renewal programmes.

To be successful in this position you will need to have a solutions-focused attitude with the ability to work with various stakeholders with conflicting interests. In addition to technical expertise in the 3 Waters investigation, design and construction management sphere, experience in leading teams and managing programmes of work is desired.

Applicants will be highly motivated team players who are well organised and committed to providing excellent service and quality results. In recognition of this, a competitive salary is offered.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated and skilled design professional to advance their career. You will be provided with ongoing support and development opportunities, both formally and through the challenging work environment the Council offers.
