The demand for our award winning work is growing and we need someone to help us meet increased demand. We want to work with someone who wants to be equally successful. Together we can shape a new New Zealand and enable people to 'connect better'.
We're a dynamic award winning group of engineers, geographers, and transport planners empowered by our clients and internally motivated to achieve more. We provide innovative consultancy advice to a wide range of public and private clients. We believe the leading reason for our success is the talent, skills and professionalism of our team. Our people are the most important asset of our company. We have offices in Auckland and Christchurch New Zealand and undertake work throughout New Zealand and Australia.
We pride ourselves in the culture our people have created. We work hard but there is always time for some fun and we provide many extra benefits that enables us to be flexible and have fun outside of work as well.

We will also support you in your chosen career path whether that be a technical, management or a business leadership role. Our firm is growing and your career growth will only be limited by your talent and ambition.
