Our vision at Piritahi is to change the way people live. We can do this by streamlining land development, laying the groundwork for neighbourhoods that are better to live in and homes that are more affordable.

Piritahi is an alliance of companies formed to speed up the supply of build-ready land. We prepare government-owned land for development and deliver new and upgraded infrastructure and amenity on behalf of Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities. We are working within Kāinga Ora’s large-scale urban development areas where state-owned land is being better utilised for new warm, dry, healthy homes.

Our responsibilities include detailed civil design and construction; the removal of old state houses no longer fit for purpose; land remediation; arranging consents related to earthworks and infrastructure; construction of roads, parks and utilities, and looking after the communities we’re working in as we go. We also have several focus areas spanning our scope of work, meaning we collaborate to create outcomes that are far from business as usual! Work for Piritahi and be part of the core team of people developing a practical solution to Auckland’s housing challenges.

With projects spanning multiple urban environments across Auckland, and an up-to 5-year programme of work, this is a rare opportunity to be part of an alliance that will have a lasting impact upon the city’s communities. Surrounded by industry experts from six different companies all with a common purpose, a career at Piritahi is lined with incredible development opportunities.

As the Trainer Assessor you will be responsible for developing and delivering training programmes on site to our machine operating staff. Due to the volume and variety of our projects, we require someone who has previous experience in a similar role in brownfield or greenfield development projects. 

An understanding of land development or large-scale civil infrastructure across a variety of terrains is important as you will be working in areas with a mix of soil types, rock and live services. 

This is a vital role working closely with our Construction and H&S team to ensure a high standard of machine operation and quality of workmanship. You will also work with key internal and external parties to develop and grow new skilled operators into the NZ construction industry. 


  • Certificate/Qualification in Training & Assessing (NZQA). 
  • Class 1-5 driver’s license preferable.
  • WTR license.
  • Experience in civil construction and heavy machinery operation.

This role will suit a candidate who has an eye for detail, passionate about the industry and enjoys working with people to mentor and upskill their operating level. 

Our head office is based in central Auckland, however this role will be based predominantly across our active projects in Northcote, Mt Roskill, Oranga, Mangere and Tamaki. 

We have a great culture driven by our vision. We offer a fun and dynamic working environment, career development and pathways into various areas relating to the engineering and construction sectors. The companies who make up the alliance are also family-based organisations who value their staff and have a passion for the communities they work in.

Opportunities on projects like this do not come around often! If you are someone who thrives in a complex and dynamic environment, then we want to hear from you.

Be part of NZ’s first land development alliance and apply now!
