    We are seeking a Junior to Intermediate Geotechnical Engineer or Engineering Geologist to join our Christchurch team. If you enjoy an autonomous working environment, and variety between hands-on project orientated work, mentoring and technical leadership then this job could be for you!

    Soil & Rock Consultants are a specialised geotechnical engineering consultancy who have built a well-respected position in the market, having been established in the North Island for 30 years and operating in Christchurch for over five years, with new satellite offices in Whangarei and Wellington.

    What’s in it for you?

    Here at Soil & Rock we work hard, and we play hard.  We encourage a close-knit team culture and offer plenty of activities and opportunities to connect with your team mates, whether that be at Friday drinks in the office, clay bird shooting, a winter ski trip, or other social events throughout the year.  You will get ongoing support, training and development, great work-life balance, and career progression opportunities. A competitive remuneration and benefits package will be negotiated for the right candidate.

     Your responsibilities will include:

    • Supporting the delivery of commercial, industrial and residential projects for our Christchurch and South Island based clients.
    • Technical project management – managing assigned geotechnical investigations, from initial job enquiry through the full project lifecycle to completion.
    • Onsite investigation, test pit and construction supervision, liquefaction analysis, design work and technical report preparation.
    • Providing mentoring and guidance to more junior members of the team.
    • Ensuring technical checks, QA and technical reviews are completed.

    Position requirements:

    • Bachelor / Master’s Engineering or Geology Degree and 3+ years’ relevant Civil or Geotechnical work experience in a professional engineering consultancy.
    • New Zealand work experience and a full, clean, manual driver’s licence are required. Experience with Christchurch and South Island geology is preferred but not essential.
    • You’ll need to be a team player who is self-motivated and uses their initiative to get things done. Strong communication skills and natural leadership instincts will benefit you in this organisation.
    • Knowledge of retaining wall design, piled foundation, and ground improvement practices.
    • Broad knowledge of Land Development, Engineering Consulting, and Local Authorities.

    If this sounds like you and you are keen to become an integral part of our office with a great culture and mix of projects, please apply today. This is your chance to make a real difference to our business and become a part of our journey.
