Civil Engineering Jobs and Recruitment

Civil engineers in New Zealand are in high demand as a result of continued government investment in infrastructure.

With major projects that include roads, water collection, waste water management and public buildings. Many of these projects are due to the new environmental standards and many local authorities are upgrading their water infrastructure for compliance.

As a broad overview, civil engineers design, plan, organise and oversee the building of structures such as dams, bridges, gas and water supply systems, sewerage systems and roads. They analyse the way these structures are likely to behave once they are built, and choose the best materials and construction methods for each design.
