You can’t beat Wellington on a good day!

Wellington, New Zealand is a vibrant, growing region and we have a number of exciting opportunities for agile, motivated, innovative three waters professionals to help us make a difference to our region’s three waters sector (stormwater, wastewater, and potable water).

Wellington Water has a unique, industry leading, relationship with our consulting panel (GHD, Stantec, WSP Opus, Beca, Mott MacDonald and Calibre) which is highly collaborative and values quality and innovation. It’s an exciting time to be involved in the water sector and together we have a number of high profile projects coming up in the next 12-18 months.

About Wellington

Wellington is a super cool and small city. So small in fact that 18,000 of the city’s residents walk or jog to work. The residents are a lucky bunch - nearly all of us are within 3km of the sea which means easy access to our 497km of coastline. On top of all that seaside goodness, Wellington has 363km of mountain bike and walking tracks around the city.

  • Named most liveable city in the world by Deustche Bank 2017 and 2018.
  • Home to the highest concentration of digital businesses and knowledge intensive industries in New Zealand.
  • London (19th) Auckland (81st) and Wellington (101st) Birmingham (128th) – Mercer Cost of Living Ranking 2018
  • Named as NZ’s Top Destination by Lonely Planet.
