This is a newly created role and one of the better senior Asset roles, I’ve seen for a while. It’s a great opportunity for an experienced engineer to guide the company with sound direction, in improving their life cycle management strategies for all their utilities and structures etc. this also includes ensuring that the engineering standards are maintained across all the company’s sites throughout New Zealand, while meeting all contractual, statutory, and regulatory obligations.

  • Develop long-term asset management plans to ensure safe and compliant operation of the company assets
  • Lead the delivery of asset management and major maintenance programme through sound programme/project management disciplines
  • Develop and maintain positive relationships with key external stakeholders and industry contacts
