- A clear pathway to AHSCP certification

The job offer
Our core business is delivering shallow to medium water hydrographic survey projects and a key part of that is having a highly skilled and certified team. We are looking for someone that is keen to learn and start their path to certification with the AHSCP. No two projects we undertake are ever the same, so you’ll need to enjoy technical challenges and be organised and adept at managing your time. Being resilient and calm in the face of pressure is a must, as is being a team player. We don’t see ourselves as an offshore survey company, and nor do we pigeonhole people. We’re all about keeping things interesting and making sure our team get a variety of work and opportunities to develop professionally.
You will need a current clean New Zealand Drivers license and some experience towing and backing boats is desirable (but not essential in any way). You must be a New Zealand resident or hold a current work permit to work in Australia and New Zealand.
In return, we offer a competitive remuneration package and the opportunity to be part of an internationally recognised, innovative hydrographic survey company. We are always looking for ways to improve so you will be encouraged to share your knowledge and your input will be valued. You will get to work on interesting projects alongside a friendly team, in a progressive environment where you can make a real difference.
