Waste Operations Engineer
Wellington City
2d ago

Waste is a mainstream sustainability challenge for all of us - making our Waste Operations business unit a rewarding and challenging place to work.

Our Waste Operations team, based at the Southern Landfill, takes on responsibility for achieving Wellington City Council's outcomes regarding solid waste.

We're looking for a Waste Operations Engineer to do the following :

  • Project manage the development of new stages for the Southern Landfill - an important and high-profile project.
  • Contract manage our kerbside collection and operations contracts
  • Develop, implement and manage the asset management plan(s) for Waste Operations
  • Providing expert, technical advice around waste management and disposal
  • You'll also be providing advice and expertise around our 34 closed landfills, and how we manage and monitor those, as well as advising on our other Waste Minimisation Projects.

    We're looking for someone with a passion for the industry - we're in a pivotal moment in our waste management journey, and this role will play a key component in our success.

    You'll have proven project, contract and asset management experience, as well as engineering experience specific to this role.

    Ideally, you'll have used GIS software previously too. You will be a confident communicator and adept at identifying problems and developing solutions.

    Experience preparing budgets is a plus.

    Due to the location of the landfill, a current driver's licence is a must.

    This is an opportunity to make a real difference not only for our organisation but for the city and its communities for generations to come.

    The work this role does today will play a big part in the future shape of waste management in our capital city.

    The team at the Southern Landfill are friendly, welcoming and passionate about the work they do. The council is firmly focused on its people - He Tangata, He Tangata, He Tangata - and we offer plenty of learning, development and growth opportunities.

    If you'd like to find out more, please check out our position description on our careers website, or reach out to Glenn Jones, Talent Acquisition Partner glenn.jones wcc.govt.nz

    Applications close Sunday, 24 July 2022 and must be submitted online.

    We look forward to hearing from you soon!

    We're looking for people who share our passion for Wellington and have the same values that we do - to make our city an even better place to live and work.
