Our Utilities team in the Engineering Department are proud contributors to the growth of our community. We put all our energies into providing peace of mind through the delivery of waste management, stormwater, wastewater and water supply services. Due to an internal promotion, we are currently looking for the right person to take on the role of Water Engineer in the water/wastewater team - could this be you?

In this specialist role, based in Richmond, you'll be assisting the Team Leader with the management of Council's district water assets. You will be responsible for day to day water reticulation management, and implementing and coordinating programmes for network modelling, leak detection and backflow prevention. You'll also be responsible for advising the Activity Planning team and implementing the Water Supply Activity Management Plan.

You'll have a degree in Engineering and at least five years prior experience in a local government engineering role, or NZDE and at least ten years prior experience in a local government engineering role. You'll demonstrate solid project management skills and a financial understanding of accounting for infrastructure assets. You'll also have experience in the provision of local authority utilities services.

While applicants with significant prior experience are preferred, we would be happy to consider applications where you have a degree in engineering or NZDE but fewer years' experience, and develop you in the role.

Climate and lifestyle are the some of the major factors for people choosing to live and work in the Tasman District. If you love the great outdoors, the Tasman District provides plenty of action, great wines and food, and a beautiful coastline for you to enjoy.

If this sounds like the role for you, apply now!
