Process Manager - Water and Wastewater Treatment
An opportunity for an experienced water treatment process engineer or manager.
As process manager, you will be responsible for the maintenance and operations of 17 wastewater and 9 water treatment plants. You be responsible for recording and analysing data and information from the treatment plants to ensure that the treatment processes are correct and that our operations are compliant with legislation. You will manage and lead a team of 13 operators who will cover quite a broad geographical area, so your role will include a mixture of both office and site-based activities and require some local travel. You will form close working relationships with internal stakeholders including the customer service manager, the reticulation manager, the risk and asset manager and the SHEQ advisor. You will also build credibility and rapport with client representatives including the compliance manager, the asset team and the projects team. You will also use your expertise to provide ideas and advice in relation to new technology and improvements to the treatment plants.
What's in it for you?
You will be joining one of New Zealand's largest infrastructure services companies on one of our longest standing contracts. We have a great relationship with our client (FNDC) and you will be joining a team of experienced water industry experts who know the assets very well. With recent changes in legislation you will be in a strong position to influence how the business respond and to help implement the required changes. For the right person, this could be a chance for career progression. If you are a high-performing process engineer who is interested in moving into a management role we are willing to train and mentor you in people management and leadership skills.
You will be an experienced process manager or engineer who has previously overseen the operations and maintenance of Water or Wastewater treatment plants. You will be an expert in water treatment processes and have in-depth knowledge of compliance requirements and legislation. You will be capable of building strong relationships with client representatives. It is preferable but not essential that you have experience in recording and analysing data. You will be a champion of safe working environments and very well versed in relevant HSE information. You welcome challenge and endeavour to identify ways to improve the performance of your team and develop them as individuals.
