Work type:

One of our client’s is looking for a Project Manager to manage a capital works programme for roads in New Zealand.  They are an operations, maintenance and construction services organisation, operating globally in the resources, energy, industrial, infrastructure, rail, property and defence sectors. They are a safety-focused and complex business offering high profile projects, industry-leading expertise and international career opportunities you need to fulfil your ambition.

Historically New Zealand has not produced enough construction and engineering professionals to meet the demand of the market so we welcome people who want to relocate here to continue with the careers and take full advantage of the quality lifestyle and way of life New Zealand can offer.

Infrastructure is the foundation on which so much of our economy relies, whether it is reliable electricity, clean drinking water, or transport networks that allow us to safely get to work and live our lives every day. Central and local government own over $200 billion of infrastructure assets and in the ten years to 2025, the forecast infrastructure spend is over $110 billion.

This value, the opportunity cost it presents, the long life nature of the assets and the importance of infrastructure to our economy and social well-being make it critical that our infrastructure is well planned, managed, delivered and used. New Zealand infrastructure industry is experiencing unseen levels of activity with $37 billion worth of construction forecast for 2017 alone and rising from there.

The 2016 National Construction Pipeline Report forecasts the value of construction by building and type for the six years ahead stating the construction boom is going to continue into 2025 due to increased spending on commercial offices, housing, roads, rail and water supply.
