The Ghella Abergeldie Joint Venture is seeking an experienced General Superintendent 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.

In this role, you will oversee all aspects of the planning, implementation, monitoring and completion of the tunnel works, with a focus on the day to day tunnelling construction and excavation works. You will also ensure the best people are in the right roles to achieve the best for the project.

The successful candidate will have:

  • A current CoC as an A Grade Tunnel Manager
  • 20 years plus underground construction experience
  • Extensive experience in civil construction, including deep structures, shafts and pipejacking
  • Experience applying in-depth knowledge to plan and implement safe and productive operations and procedures.
  • Experience leading people and building capability.
  • Excellent time management and organisational skills.
  • Communication that is clear, concise and easily understood both in written and verbal form.

If you can demonstrate excellent health and safety practices, have experience working as a superintendent on a similar project(s), can work under pressure and determine priorities, then this is a fantastic opportunity for you.
