The Ghella Abergeldie Joint Venture is seeking an experienced Tunneller to join the team on the Central Interceptor Project. 

The Central Interceptor is a wastewater tunnel that will run between the Māngere Wastewater Treatment Plant and Grey Lynn. The main tunnel will run underground for 14.7 kilometres and will be at a depth of between 15 and 110 metres. It will cross the Manukau Harbour at about 15 metres below the seabed. Along the route, it will connect to the existing wastewater network, which will divert flows and overflows into the tunnel to reduce overflows. 

Reporting to the Supervisor you will assist with all the works in the production and maintenance of the TBM and MTBM as required for the Central Interceptor Project. 

What you will be doing: 

  • Prepare segments for installation.
  • Assist in loading and unloading of the muck in wagons. 
  • Keep grout lines always unblocked and clean.
  • Work closely with the Erector Operator and segment delivery within the TBM. 
  • Ensure the site is always in a safe and tidy condition. 
  • Prepare segments for installation. 
  • Assist the team where needed.

The successful candidate will have: 

  • Physically fit for underground work and comfortable working in confined spaces. 
  • Flexibility to work shifts which will include overnights and weekends. 
  • Experience working on a construction site or have worked underground. 
  • Willingness to upskill and help the team in other areas when required. 
  • Construct Safe Level 1 is ideal but not essential - we will provide this training!
