What will you be doing?

  • Completing geological engineering field investigations in a range of environments for our Christchurch and South Island based residential and commercial clients.
  • Preparing site descriptions and sketches, charting field data using gINT software, drafting of site plans, cross sections and auger hole logs using AutoCAD, and assisting with engineering analysis.
  • Assisting with laboratory testing using samples taken from the field.
  • Ensuring technical checks, QA and equipment maintenance are completed.
  • Plus, much more as you progress within the company!

What are the job requirements?

  • NZDE / BEng Tech / Bachelor Degree NZ qualification in engineering or geology.
  • A full, clean, manual driver’s licence.
  • Knowledge of the New Zealand Geotechnical Society Guidelines “Field Description of Soil and Rock”, and general working knowledge of carrying out onsite field investigations and preparing associated documentation.
  • 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.
