  • Introduce technology to better respond to and mitigate the impacts of events on the transport network in real time

  • Be a key contributor to rapidly moving field of transport technology, a field we have a proud history in

Who are you?:

  • You have a relevant qualification in management and/or a proven track record in people leadership and system optimisation
  • As a natural leader you understand how to get the best out of a diverse group of people and enjoy motivating others to achieve success
  • You will be a conceptual thinker who has experience challenging the status quo, with an ability to disrupt the market and influence others to bring about positive change
  • You will have a passion for leading people who are optimising complex technical systems and striving for “best for customer” outcomes

What is in it for you?

The Real-Time Operations team is in a high technology growth phase, and this provides an exceptional opportunity to anyone who loves the challenges and rewards this creates. The next major transport event, whether it is the Six60 concert or a traffic signal failure, has your name all over it.

If you are interested in joining the team helping to make travel in Christchurch better today we would love to hear from you!
