With offices in Auckland and Rotorua we deliver to the  Dairy, Food and Beverage, Energy, Geothermal, and Timber processing industries and are particularly proud of our innovative solutions to reduce our clients carbon footprints.

At the heart of our success lies a team of highly skilled and qualified engineers that operate in a high-performing culture. We value our people through fostering an atmosphere of professional respect organisation wide.  We invest in our people with a range of in-house and formal training opportunities.  

We care for our people through providing competitive and comprehensive compensation packages, that include health care cover and professional membership fees, along with regular opportunities to interact with one another in social settings. We support our people by mapping out a clear career progression and provide mentoring and support along agreed pathways.

This is a unique opportunity and we are looking for an outstanding professional who has strong experience  in the areas that we operate in, or in plant design from conception, through to design and installation.

  • A passion and proven experience for mentoring both Graduate and Intermediate level Engineers
