Leading New Zealand in Utility Location

Work For ULS New Zealand

The utility location industry in New Zealand is growing.

Demand for professional utility location services is increasing rapidly as a result of greater emphasis on health and safety and the need to reduce avoidable damage to underground assets.

If you want to be part of an organisation that had New Zealand's first internationally accredited and certified Locator, was instrumental in founding the New Zealand industry body, and consulted on New Zealand's beforeUdig Certified Locator programme, then get in touch.

ULS is a leader in the industry with a focus on professional service delivery, and we're interested in talking to potential candidates to join us as we grow.

Here's what we are looking for:

  • Certified Locators, DBYD or beforeUDig, with the following experience:
    • at least 5 years of experience using EM and GPR locating methods,
    • exposure to utility mapping including the use of GNSS and Totalstation,
    • CAD or GIS experience, and
    • able to work across all underground asset types.

There are some givens: you'll be motivated, technology literate, able to manage your projects and workload, as well as being eligible to work in New Zealand.

If you think you have what it takes, get in touch using the form below.
