This firm has done well. Formed from a posse of talented Civil/Structural engineers, they have looked for sectors with portential for change and engaged to develope innovative solutions.  This has brought growth and attracted more good people to the team. They have won accolades and awards for going beyond the norm and this perfectly sized consultancy now focusing on facade design.  They have projects in, great connections, a team of very good structural engineers and CAD technicians to support this role, now it is time to find the right person to step into this opportunity.

As well as a very generous salary, following the pattern of previous technical leaders in this firm, there will be options in terms of shareholding / profit sharing / directorship.

The Role:

In this position, it is a senior role to seed and then lead the technical design team in Auckland on projects around New Zealand.

The responsibilities of this position will essentially be 

  • Full Engineering design of façades (including structural, moisture and thermal)
  • Review of existing building envelopes for compliance
  • Consultancy advice
  • Design and development of remedial solutions
  • Working with other team members as part of multi-specialist and multi-disciplinary design projects.
  • Managing work as it comes in.
  • Mentoring other engineers and developing team capabilities.

Some insight:

To secure a very special position as this, we need a combination of technical compentency, hands-on experience, the ability to communicate at many levels, and the ability to manage and develop a small consultancy team. The focus is not on "business development" as there is plenty of work around, but you will play a part in demonstrating trhe company's competence and capabilities in envelope diagostics and design. Occasionally there may be legal cases where you would be involved in providing evidence in cases of incorrect design or construction.


Why this Opportunity?

This firm is probably a "Goldilocks" size; small enough to offer flexibility, large enough to get interesting projects and be able to offer a significant and secure career path.

This firm is on solid foundations and has a current pipeline of work already in place.  There is administrative, design/draughting and professional support for this position.  

You will be well rewarded in this position - financially, with the quality of the people and with the notable benefits of growth.
