Be part of Auckland’s growth
Raising the bar in Project Management
Infrastructure and new technology projects
Who we are
Auckland is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. As New Zealand’s largest electricity distribution network, we need to grow our network to be both resilient and smart, to support our thriving city. With so many critical growth projects happening, the build and reinforcement of our network is critical to ensure we maintain a safe and reliable continuous supply of power. Added to the challenge is the increase in distributed energy resources such as microgrids, solar PV, electric vehicles, and demand management.
With so many critical growth projects happening around our city, we are growing the size of our project management team. We are looking for project managers with a minimum of 5 years construction, utilities (excluding IT) or industrial based project management delivery experience.
If you want to take a part in helping to build the network infrastructure to support the future of Auckland, then this could be the next opportunity for you.
