Rivers and Coastal Engineer

Tasman District Council

Rivers and Coastal Engineer

Are you looking to ‘shore' up your next career move and make a difference to our rivers and coastal assets in the Tasman District?

Due to an internal move, we are looking for a Rivers and Coastal Engineer to join our Waters and Wastes team in the Community Infrastructure Group. This is an opportunity to be involved in a rewarding operational role in which you have both variety of work and the satisfaction of seeing the results of your efforts in action.

In this specialist role, you'll help to manage the Council's river and coastal assets, assist with the implementation of the associated Activity Management Plans and manage and implement renewal and capital projects for these assets. As you'll be liaising with a variety of key stakeholders including Iwi, Fish & Game, Council's Compliance and Environmental Information teams and landowners in relation to these assets, excellent communication and relationship management skills is a must.

You'll either have a degree in Engineering and significant experience in a river catchment, coastal or related engineering role, or an NZDE and extensive experience in a Local Government river catchment, coastal or related engineering role. You'll also demonstrate good project management skills and a sound financial understanding of accounting for infrastructure assets.

While significant prior experience is preferred, we would be happy to consider applications from suitably qualified applicants who have fewer years' experience who also have the potential to develop into the role.

In return, we offer ongoing professional development, flexible working options, a variety of challenging and interesting work, relocation assistance, discounted gym/pool membership, and an excellent range of benefits suited to your preferences. We also give you a day off for your birthday!

If you are passionate about river and coastal projects, then this is the role for you - apply now!
