About Us:

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.

Join us through one of our land development specialist member companies and help to change the way build-ready land is delivered in NZ. 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.


About the Role:

At Piritahi we deliver groundwork in neighbourhoods across Auckland. Each neighbourhood has multiple distinct projects that start and progress at different times. The Project Engineer is responsible for providing technical engineering expertise to guide the site team, facilitating the timely delivery of the project at scale and pace.


The Project Engineer will execute the delivery of the allocated project to ensure delivery of superlots at scale and pace and within budget. You will track the agreed construction budget, demonstrating strong ownership for cost and outcomes. You will participate in the identification, reporting and controls of H&S hazards and risks and actively support effective and constructive communications.


Requirements:

  • Tertiary qualification in engineering or similar
  • Practical experience in engineering work
  • Site Safe Certified and current First Aid Certificate
  • Full, current driver license 


Our head office is based in central Auckland and we have active projects in Northcote, Mt Roskill, Oranga, Mangere and Tamaki. This role will be based at one of our site offices.

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.
