Career Opportunities

Structural and Civil Engineers

Hadley Consultants is a boutique consultancy who have a reputation for providing cost effective, practical and design focussed solutions to the civil and structural needs of projects at any scale. We believe in skilled people, not lots of people. We specialise in ensuring value not just by working smart on the engineering elements of projects, but by delivering it the right way.

We are always interested in hearing from Queenstown based engineers with a minimum of 2 years New Zealand experience to see if we can fit you in to our practice. With a staff of 11, access to project support is straight forward and allows for rapid growth in career experience.

Our office is a converted house that we have made our own, our staff all have pretty active lifestyles so we cater for early morning runs to the ski field during winter and biking and other activities most of the year round – we even provide you with a ski pass for the season!

You can be exposed to a variety of project activities – on the structural side this could see you involved in all aspects of the structural design of high end residential homes, unique adventure tourism structures, commercial and industrial buildings, through to construction monitoring, earthquake assessment and strengthening work. On the civil side we are involved in a variety of subdivision, roading and 3 waters projects.

Should you have;

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills,
  • Thorough knowledge of NZ design standards,
  • The ability to build excellent rapport with architects, other engineers, sub-contractors and local authorities,
  • Understanding of the practical application and design of concrete, timber and steel structures,
  • At least two years’ experience gained in New Zealand.

Hadleys can offer in return a market rated salary and performance related bonus. We also offer staff benefits like a full season ski pass, professional membership fees and mobile phone – for the right person we may also be able to contribute towards relocation costs to Queenstown.

We are a family friendly firm and we are keen when possible to offer a work / life balance.
