Intermediate/Senior Development Engineer (Projects) – Transport

Porirua’s changing. Thanks to new housing developments and large-scale regeneration projects and new transport links, it’s rapidly growing into a diverse, well-connected city with big opportunities.

With all that in mind, Porirua City Council is rejuvenating its transport team and developing new positions that are key to preparing for its current and future growth so that we can continue to develop a resilient, liveable city for our future generations.

As we shift gear towards becoming a high-growth council, we have to work differently to improve our processes and become more future-focused. Traditional thinking will be complemented with new ways of thinking and working, so we need leaders who can identify, respond to and embrace change when it’s needed.

We are seeking a Intermediate or Senior Development Engineer (Projects) to join our small, dedicated team. In this role you will manage significant projects that will contribute to shaping Porirua’s growth, you will be responsible for project lifecycle from business case development to construction, ensuring project delivery is of a high standard, on time and within agreed budgets. You’ll oversee everything that occurs in our growth areas, including preparing business cases for, and managing, major transport projects.

There’s possibly never been a more exciting time to join us. There’s a strong sense of positivity and starting afresh. We’re strengthening our relationships with agencies and forming new ones, and we’re building more internal capability in a team that’s full of dynamic people who are embracing and loving the changes that are happening.

If you’re a qualified engineer operating at a senior level, or developing towards that, with relevant experience in the management and delivery of engineering, design and construction projects, this is your chance to showcase what you can do from day one. Many of the projects you’ll work on are not just in the pipeline; they’ve been signed off, they’re in their early stages, and we need you on board to build on what’s been done so far.

If lifestyle matters as much to you as career satisfaction, it’s worth the move if you’re coming from outside the Wellington region. As well as relaxed seaside living, you’ll find bush tracks, natural reserves, and a vibrant multicultural community.

So how about it? Could the next step in your career see you in this influential role, planning and delivering transport programmes that shape the direction of Porirua for decades to come? If yes, then come and join our transforming Transport Team and be part of our welcoming and engaging environment.
