The business is managed by three active Director / Shareholders, each operating in their relevant fields of engineering and design with a ‘hands on’ approach to delivery. As a CPEng Technical Director you will be leading the geotechnical team and coordinating workflow with the other Directors. The role will be principally based from our Whangarei office with potentially one day a week based from our Warkworth office.
