Who are we looking for

We have an exciting opportunity for a driven and passionate Inspector to join our Building Quality team based in Ngaruawahia. As an Inspector you will be inspecting earthquake-prone buildings and pool fences, supporting customers through regulations while still meeting legal requirements.

You will work alongside the team to attend building inspections, complete building audits and inspect swimming pool fences for compliance.

You will also have a trade qualification in the construction industry along with 5 years on-the-job training and experience within the NZ building industry.

Don't have all the above requirements? No worries, still submit your application as we would be open to providing the necessary training for the right person.
