Healthy waters jobs

Why join our Healthy waters team?

In recent years we've shifted the focus of storm water management from removing or disposing of water as fast as possible through large pipes, to recognising the value of natural freshwater systems and benefits they offer to enhance the urban environment. The assets we deliver reflect the full range of approaches more than ever and include upgrades to urban streams, development treatment ponds as well as more traditional pipeline solutions.

Our focus is on the customer and the community

We are taking the traditional government department into the modern era where customer excellence is what we do as part of our everyday service. We do this through challenging status quo and being the 'how' in designing and implementing customer centric ideas and culture, business improvement and managing communication on behalf of our customers.

Who are we and a bit about us

We are a skilled, enthusiastic team of engineers and project managers. We work collaboratively to deliver our promises to build a stormwater network to match Tāmaki Makaurau's (Auckland) growing needs. We are a group of people who like getting things done. Yes, there's paperwork but the satisfaction will come from seeing the projects delivered and the communities benefiting from the outcome.
