New Zealand

Work type:

Curious and committed to identifying the very best treatment application, your extensive knowledge of chemicals will be challenged and rewarded in recommending optimum treatment, storage and disposal solutions for a wide range of products and customers, across diverse sectors.


The people in this business are down to earth (sometimes literally) and genuinely care about our environment.  They manage our waste, including substances requiring special attention prior to disposal.  Dealing with hazardous substances, the chemical process is significant. Safety is a constant priority.


This Chemist joins a small expert team that is responsible for the day to day analysis and control requirements of hazardous materials, ensuring this analysis is performed in a safe and timely manner. You will identify chemicals by utilising senses such as sight and smell, as well make decisions on diverting waste to certain processing plants (liquid plant, CP, ponds, etc). There is wide variety to keep you interested and challenged, including handling of hazardous liquids and solid waste. In essence you are in a team that is responsible for determining the correct treatment process of diverse waste materials, to a point where the final product is acceptable for disposal to landfill or sewer. 


A chemistry degree and accreditation as a certified hazardous waste handler is required, with exposure to the waste sector an advantage. Your broad chemical knowledge including industrial chemical processes, possibly from manufacturing, water treatment or a similar background will be assets. A combination of pride in your attention to detail, process efficiency and diligent risk management as well as commitment to safety and good communication skills will contribute to your success.
