Road Works Project Coordinator - Transport Assets

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a group of a highly motivated team of professionals who are responsible for the maintenance and operation of Wellington City's transport assets.

Whether the asset belongs to vehicle, pedestrian or cycle networks we ensure they are safely and efficiently maintained to enable the safe and efficient movement of people through the networks. These networks are vital to supporting the city's economy.

As our Project Coordinator, you will contribute to our success through your ability to:


  • prepare and update the maintenance programmes for the current and forward financial years
  • extract data from the Council's asset management database
  • audit and analyse fault finding data sets and report to Managers
  • assist with onsite inspections
  • coordinate site clearance with service authorities to ensure no work programme clashes occur
  • report on any resulting programmed work volume changes
  • publish, update and manage work programmes on the Wellington City Council web site
  • coordinate roadworks programmes with other council projects
  • respond to customer inquiries.
This position is ideal for a recent graduate or a diploma holder in engineering or computer science. Previous work experience is not essential but an exceptional knowledge of Microsoft Excel with data base management and analytical skills are required. You will have to be a strong social media networker, technically-minded person with a keen interest to learn new subjects like web site hosting and maintenance.


The Wellington City Council is committed to providing a positive working environment. The culture is renowned for its friendliness, diversity and opportunity, and the Council strongly supports continuous professional development.
