We are visiting London, Manchester and Birmingham in September to meet you…

Due to increased demand and a large varied workload from our clients in New Zealand we are looking for Principal Geotechnical Engineers and Engineering Geologists to join our team.

New Zealand is made up of some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes, from vast mountain ranges, steaming volcanoes to sweeping coastlines.  It is a natural playground for thrill seekers and adventurers and the NZ community is very safe, welcoming and friendly.  It is a great place to raise children and the lifestyle is second to none.

CMW Geosciences is a specialist Geotechnical Consultancy with 7 offices across New Zealand and Australia, focusing on the Construction, Infrastructure and Land Development sectors.  We are a mid-sized, privately owned, 130+ strong consultancy delivering excellent geotechnical services without the drudgery and red tape that comes with working for larger organisations.

  • Work with the technical team to develop, provide and promote geotechnical solutions, options and initiatives to meet client needs
  • Lead and develop a team of Geotechnical Engineers and Geologists
  • Develop relationships with clients and sub-consultants and provide value-added advice and service to ensure client satisfaction
  • Undertake technical and non-technical tasks and take responsibility for the accuracy and quality of our work
  • Assuming responsibility for planning and managing resources and budget for site investigation, ground modelling, and/or geotechnical design projects of all types
