  4. Renewable Energy - doing your bit to help the environment
  5. Timaru - lifestyle, affordable housing and great schools

We have an award-winning client blazing trails in renewable power solutions  inn New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific Islands and Asia.  Success means expansion and therefore they are looking for a competent AutoCAD draughtsperson to join the team.

  • a record of learning new skills
  • the ability to communicate confidently on the phone

We are looking for:

  • Typically 3+ years AutoCAD experience.
  • A portfolio of fully detailed drawings in mechanical, architectural or similar fields.
  • Proven experience working in an English-speaking workplace.
  • Confidence in communication
