Process Controller

The Three Waters and Waste unit provides drinking water, waste-water and storm-water services to over 385,000 people in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula. Our vision is to manage water and waste to sustain life and protect our environment. To assist us in achieving our strategic priority of community outcome of healthy environments through healthy water bodies, we have a vacancy for two Process Controllers.

In this position you will operate the Christchurch Waste-water Treatment Plant (CWTP) in a safe, efficient, and cost-effective manner to ensure resource consent and process parameters are met at all times. You will be responsible for preparing and reviewing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) and other associated documents and drawings under the guidance of the Process Engineer.

You will also provide regular shift relief for the shift engineers on an as-needed basis. Whilst there will be no routine requirement to work outside of office hours, weekends, or public holidays, waste-water treatment is a 24/7 business.

Your responsibilities will also include the management of CWTP Permits To Work (PtW), including undertaking isolations under the guidance of Shift Engineers. You will also contribute to representing the operations team on capital delivery projects.

You will work closely with the Shift Engineers to ensure that operational support is provided to facilitate maintenance activities on the plant. You will also contribute to the plant operations team with a culture of high performance and continuous improvement, including supporting the ISO14001 Environmental Management System.

What is essential to be successful in this position? You will have two years of industry experience and a relevant qualification in waste-water treatment. Other transferable skills and experience will be taken into consideration. Your can-do attitude and commitment to excellence will come in handy when working alongside a dedicated team who are committed to making a difference in our community.
