Calling Graduate/Junior Engineer - Waipa District Council


  • A fantastic opportunity to kickstart your career in the water industry
  • Be a part of the rapidly expanding field of engineering asset management

Are you a recent engineering graduate? Perhaps you've had some experience, but now you're looking for an opportunity that will set you on a career path, providing future opportunities? Waipa District Council's Asset Information Officer role could be just what you have been looking for!

Our district is growing rapidly, and so is our need to proactively manage our three waters assets (water, wastewater and stormwater) to optimise maintenance and investment. Asset management is fast becoming a focus area for local government and private organisations alike, as they embrace the importance of long-term strategic thinking in engineering. Our Asset Information Officer role plays a vital part in managing and analysing Council's asset data to drive robust decision making around capital expenditure and asset renewals.

Come and join our friendly, passionate team of engineers, and help us deliver an outstanding service to our communities in Cambridge, Te Awamutu and surrounds, while building the knowledge and experience needed to grow an exciting career (and if you think asset management isn't exciting, just ask us about the leak-detecting drones!!). Well positioned to proactively support your growth and development, you'll find Council a progressive place to be, with endless opportunities.

To be successful in this role, you will be:energetic, enthusiastic and full of initiative

  • a team player who can work collaboratively
  • a natural problem solver
  • someone with strong attention to detail and a drive for accuracy
  • open to change and improvement, embracing emerging technologies and best practice initiatives.

The ability to interpret and understand GIS, maps and technical terminology, as well as a familiarity with using databases would be an advantage, but full training will be provided to the successful candidate.

Application close date: at 12.00pm Monday, 3 June 2019.
