  • Leading innovator in design-led construction.

  • Technical lead role required for new division.

  • Your opportunity to ride the wave.,

It's no secret - computers are taking over the construction world. Thank goodness.

What was done with pen and paper has of course changed a bundle in the last 40 years - some resist that change, some grasp it with both hands.  My client is a well qualified lover of the smart way of doing things; embracing new toys, technology and talent to bring the client what they want, easier. From early days of agricultural sheds, they have built a veritable machine of a company pretty much as well engineered as the buildings they create.

Things are certainly not stopping, in fact this firm's integrated approach means they have opened a new division to focus on this new special range.

This is where you come in.

Your Role:

This new design office needs someone special - able to set the example of good steelwork design, establish the standards, bring in the changes and grow with the show.

It's all about bringing the client and the design closer.

You will

  • Create quality steelwork design documentation
  • lead the way for the team as it grows
  • Test out and introduce new tools and processes 
  • Have significant input into the company way
What you will need:
  1. a proven, well-experienced steelwork designer, familiar with NZ standards (or very similar)
  2. a portrfolio demonstrating your advanced skills with Tekla Structures (or possibly similar)
  3. the desire to grow professionally and technically to help the team develop their capabilities
  4. to be a team player

This is a permanent role, based in the modern Timaru offices and some travbel to sites may very occasionally be required..

On Offer:

For the right person, able to make this move?

Serious Prospects: With growth, opportunity does come, in this case to become a pivotal player in the success of an already winning company keen to get great people on the bus.

Good rewards: Timaru is a great place for families and active / outdoor-loving people, plus you get to earn a very competitive salary in a place where more goes in your pocket at the end of the month. Houses, education and lifestyle are there for others to envy.

Good company: A dynamic team, caring responsive management and an eye for opportunity means you are in a great place.

Essentially, this role offers the opportunity for someone good with Tekla and steel detailing to build a solid future for themselves. The chance to become an integral part of a very successful firm, ride the wave and build your skill and smarts in a very smart place.

Sites are located throughout New Zealand and, on occasions, some short term travel (day trips mainly) may be involved.
