Intermediate/Senior/Principal HV Substation Engineers

Ergo Consulting Ltd is a successful, New Zealand professional services practice. Founded in 2003 and independently owned, we provide electrical, civil and structural engineering consulting services to the power and energy industry. We aspire to be New Zealand’s first choice provider of these services. Our clients include Top Energy, Northpower, Vector, Counties Power, Powerco, Wellington Electricity, Mainpower, Aurora, Powernet, the Ports of Auckland and Tauranga and industrial firms such as Fonterra and Ballance. We undertake a wide range of interesting and challenging projects involving the design of new or upgraded HV Substation facilities and infrastructure across NZ. We are “inspired, agile and genuine”.

At Ergo, flexibility is critical to the way we operate. Our people contribute openly in an environment where bureaucracy is minimised and where an agile approach enables us to work effectively with our clients. We’ve invested in making remote working easy. We recognise everyone has a life outside work and that family time goes hand in hand with your career.

Originally based only in Auckland, we established a Christchurch office three years ago to accelerate the development of our business in the South Island. Most recently we have established a Wellington office in order to promote our work with Transpower, having been recently appointed to their EC panel, and other clients in the region.

We are now looking to reinforce our teams in all offices with talented, experienced and ambitious engineers at all levels.

You will have:

  • a desire to deliver best in class services in conceptual and detailed HV Substation design
  • a solid working knowledge of power network analysis and specialist fields such as earthing, cable studies and protection settings

For Senior and Principal roles, and as a result of your successful career to date, you will:

  • have, or be building, a strong network of connections in the power sector across the region
  • be well thought of, with an excellent reputation among your peer group
  • know how to win and manage projects successfully
  • have excellent leadership and management skills.

These are great positions, with potential team leading opportunities for the right individuals. 

If you have what we are looking for, then apply now with your CV and a cover letter.

NOTE: Only those eligible to work in New Zealand will be considered at this time
