COME WORK WITH US!

Be part of a new team with a fresh new approach to building cool buildings in Wellington, with good people.  Aoraki Construction Ltd was formed through the partnership of some highly experienced construction professionals who have stepped away from the big companies and corporates to deliver commercial construction developments in Wellington.

Our philosophies are clean and simple – work in the market we know and love (Wellington!), work in partnerships with good people, understand construction risk and actively manage it, treat everyone with fairness and respect, work hard, and have a heap of fun along the way!

Aoraki is deeply connected with the earth, the sky, the clouds and the environment.  This represents to us one of our founding Visions to keep grounded, be true to our foundations and keep perspective of why we’re doing this, every day.

Sound like you?  We are growing our already fantastic team to keeping building great projects for Wellington, including some significant new build residential developments, apartment buildings, seismic upgrades, office fit-outs and inner-city accommodation conversions all on the horizon.  Whether you are experienced already, or ready to take the next steps – we have opportunities to join a fantastic team.  If you fit any of the below roles, and are motivated and inspired to be part of an exciting new team, please call or email us (details below), we'd love to connect for a korero! 

 

PROJECT MANAGER

Attitude is everything.  The opportunity for project management within Aoraki spans a range of project types with big teams on $30M+ new build projects, to smaller teams on conversions and seismic upgrades.  Our construction project managers take full responsibility for live projects, and also are actively involved in the preconstruction phase of upcoming projects with our key clients and our own development projects.

 

QUANTITY SURVEYOR

Our commercial team have a focus on achieving excellent quality outcomes that we can all be proud of, and achieving great value for our clients and development partners.  We look at procurement differently, leveraging the buying power of our scale and exploring off-shore supply markets where it can add value to our projects.  As well as running live construction projects, our commercial team are actively involved in the preconstruction phase of upcoming projects with our key clients and our own development projects.

 

SITE MANAGER

A great site manager is well connected with the site team.  Our workface approach is all about culture – a positive work place where everyone can achieve great productivity, keep safe by looking after each other, and produce top quality building.  You’ll be working with a project manager and quantity surveyor who are supportive, and will help you to drive and own the best site culture of any Wellington construction site – and, you’ll be working with some of Wellington's top tier most capable subcontractors and suppliers, whom we have built relationships with over more than 15 years in the Wellington construction market.

PROJECT COORDINATOR

Our construction teams are based entirely on the sites – so every single person has no choice but to be part of the action!  Delivering construction projects is no walk in the park, as every project is different and bespoke.  This means that every detail of every project requires a high level of attention and coordination – between design elements, suppliers, materials and subcontractors.  In coordinating construction elements you’ll develop key experience and an eye for detail that provides a great pathway to site management and project management.
