We are looking for a Senior Laboratory Technician to join our team in Napier. This is a full-time role (37.5 hours per week) and a great opportunity for someone looking to further their soil, aggregate, and concrete laboratory testing career.

This is an opportunity to join a leading specialist geotechnical testing company with a broad scope of testing to increase your technical knowledge. The work will be hands-on and physical, and therefore requires a reasonable degree of physical capability.

Duties include:

- Operating heavy testing and soil sampling equipment.
- Monitoring of geotechnical instrumentation.
- Data entry and processing of results.
- Liaising with customers and engineers.
- Completion of day-to-day tasks in a modern IANZ accredited civil lab testing facility.

Tests are conducted to New Zealand and overseas standards and require a high attention to detail. You will be expected to perform laboratory and field-testing to a high level of accuracy. The work will be hands-on and physical, and therefore requires a reasonable degree of physical capability and, at times, may involve working in adverse environmental conditions. The nature of the work may require early starts, late finishes, and occasional overtime.


- 2-5 years work experience in the laboratory testing of soil, concrete, aggregate, and asphalt.
- Computer literate, particularly in Microsoft Excel and Word.
- Excellent communication skills.
- Flexibility to adapt quickly to change.
- High standards, meticulous attention to detail, and quality.
- Able to look at situations from both a commercial and customer perspective.
- Committed to performing all work in accordance with our IANZ accreditation and project management system.
