About the job
Water at Beca
Our multi-disciplinary team works across water, wastewater and stormwater, as well as surface waters and irrigation; partnering with clients spanning the municipal, industrial, transportation, commercial, mining and agricultural sectors. Together we make things happen on projects throughout New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific and South-East Asia. As our clients continue to call on our expertise, we’re right there beside them and are looking for more great people to join our team.
We embrace the fact that people are our greatest asset. It’s our people that set us apart, and who our clients keep coming back to. Passionate about what we do and the culture we have developed, we believe that the key to our success is the teamwork and collaboration fostered, not only within our Water team but right across the Beca Group.
This commitment to our people means that we understand that it’s not always easy juggling work with everything else life throws at us. This is why we are happy to discuss flexible working arrangements for all opportunities in the Beca team – in either a part-time or full-time capacity.
Due to ongoing growth, we are looking for a stormwater-focused civil engineer to join our Southern Water team in Christchurch. Working in a well-respected team of stormwater and water resources specialists, your work will range from catchment planning and options assessment, to detailed design and construction management. Our clients span Canterbury and around New Zealand, across the local government, transportation, industrial, commercial and agricultural sectors.
You are an intermediate or senior level civil engineer, with 4 – 10 years’ technical experience. This may include hydrology, hydraulics of pipe and open channel networks, catchment planning, water quality treatment, and flood risk assessment, as well as civil engineering design. You’ll take accountability for your work with a track record of on-time and on-budget delivery. You’ll be a team player who enjoys working as part of a talented and diverse team. You’ll also need to have the ability to build strong relationships with clients, based on understanding their needs as well as maintaining their trust and confidence in our performance, ultimately leading to continuing work and repeat business. Project management or site experience would also be welcomed.
