Close:    18 January 2021Location:    Christchurch or Auckland

Abley is a specialist professional services company with unrivalled abilities in spatial and data intelligence, software development, transportation planning and engineering.  At Abley, our purpose is to inspire positive change, so our clients can make the right decisions.

Our transport team develop and deliver strategies and infrastructure that support safer travel, improved access and mobility. They’re big picture thinkers who also consider environmental, economic and personal wellbeing outcomes.

Our location and technology team help organisations gain insights from their data, so they can improve efficiency, save money and make smarter decisions. We’re all about providing insightful advice so people can make informed decisions that benefit our communities.

How you’ll make an impact

Primarily you will contribute to the delivery of our road safety projects by applying your road safety expertise within our transportation and safety teams.  You will also work in other areas of transportation as it is important to us that you get to experience all sides of transportation engineering. Using your engineering, statistical and/or geospatial knowledge, you will be interpreting data and analysing results.  From your analysis, you will produce clear, precise and coherent reports.  You will also provide specialist inputs to expressions of interests, tenders and proposals.  Depending on your experience, we will also ask you to project manage our projects and develop and maintain strong client relationships.

Work that you do will contribute to saving lives and help New Zealand reach its Vision Zero goal.

What you’ll bring with you

Some added extras

While we hope the successful applicant has the most of the skills and experience we have listed above, we are still very keen to hear from experienced transport engineers who have experience outside of road safety.   Most importantly, we are looking for the right person who fits with our culture and has the attitude we are looking for.


As we have offices in both Auckland and Christchurch, you can work from either location. 

Why Abley?

We pride ourselves in the culture our people have created.  We provide many extra benefits that enables us to be a flexible work environment.

We operate an environment where we help each other so together we achieve great results.  We will assist you to achieve a greater technical understanding of your work and supportive of your professional development.

Our firm is growing, and your career growth will only be limited by your talent and ambition.

We offer very competitive salaries, and our offices in Christchurch and Auckland are centrally located in close proximity to public transport with great cycling facilities.  We are technology and thought leaders and we have a number of industry 'firsts' under our belt.  We work in a diverse team that has a great gender, ethnic and age mix and would welcome applicants from an equally diverse range of people.
