The devastating earthquake in February had a major on the city of Christchurch and New Zealand as a whole. Initial estimates suggest a huge amount of work on the water and waste water networks that is only likely to increase. The water is now back on but the waste water remains a problem with so much of the network severely damaged. In lieu of this damage and the significant amount of reconstruction ahead my client is looking for water and waste water/deep drainage specialists to join their team in Christchurch.
My client is a major contractor in the Christchurch area and will be focussing on water and waste water repair and reconstruction over the next few years. They are now actively searching for water experienced engineers to lead in the reconstruction of Christchurch. Ideal candidates will have experience of maintenance, repair or construction of water based projects and will be comfortable running one or more projects at any one time. Experience is the key to these roles as much of the work will involve using your initiative in a challenging environment. Key roles include;
- Water Reticulation Engineers
- Deep Drainage Specialists
- Clean Water Engineers
- Reconstruction Engineers
- Contract Managers
- Project Managers
- Site Managers
It needs to be noted that Christchurch is still effectively a disaster zone and it's likely to be 6 months or more before the city centre is reopened. You will regularly be dealing with a shaken but resilient public and so the ability to communicate well will be crucial as will a sense of humour. It's not doom and gloom in Christchurch by any means but it's important to remember that this will be a hard work. In respect of your commitment and experience you will be offered a competitive salary as part of an overall package. You will also have the chance to be part of a major event in New Zealand's history and be part of a team putting Christchurch back together.
