Drainage Manager


Connell are an award-winning, multi-disciplinary civil construction company.  We operate across the North Island with our head office in the mighty Waikato and offices in Taranaki and Auckland. Our history spans 36 years, in an industry where we’ve been operating as market leaders in deep and large diameter pipeline installation, trenchless pipeline rehabilitation, shoring and dewatering, marine work and electrical and civil structures.


After an impressive 18 years with the company, we are now on the hunt to secure a replacement for our Drainage Manager.  This role oversees the pipelines division of our business and will drive the business development and bidding functions of this division.  With significant opportunity in infrastructure over the coming years we are looking for an energetic professional who can naturally pursue business relationships for Connell, continuing growth in our existing markets but also being Connell's eyes and ears on new opportunities.

You will naturally hold relevant trade qualifications in drainage/pipelines and have broad estimating/bidding experience, however the strength in this role will be your ability to build upon your existing networks in the sector and to develop new connections that bring new opportunities to Connell.  It may be that you currently participate on infrastructure boards/forums or that you are a known expert within the infrastructure sector.

At Connell, we don't shy away from the tricky jobs and we aren't afraid to invest where we need to, whether it be new technology or different methodologies.  Accordingly, this is an exciting opportunity to shape the future of Connell's pipelines division. This is an important executive role for Connell, and remuneration will reflect this key position.
