Who we are | Ko wai mātou

Working at CORDE has never been better!

We have one of the largest horizontal infrastructure teams in the South Island working in the maintenance, civil, and water industry. The work we do strengthens the communities we work and play in, with several key long term maintenance contracts throughout the Canterbury region and a number of civil projects currently being completed throughout the South Island.

About the role | Ko te kaupapa

Come and join a stable, long term contract where you can make a difference working within the new reuse shop at the Pines Resource Recovery Park!

We are looking for someone to come and fill this key new role overseeing the reuse services at the Rolleston site. This is a brand new community asset that needs someone who can bring their skills and experience to help establish it. In order to do this you will be working alongside our client, the Selwyn District Council, who will also be involved in the selection process.

This role enables you to have a high level of ownership, and job satisfaction and to be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the reuse shop. Excellent communication skills and knowledge of the recycling industry’s best practices and environmental regulations are an absolute must.

So, if you want to be a part of a team delivering an exciting new service to the community that you live in, then we are keen to hear from you!
