New Zealand: Vacancy as Head of Generation at Wairakei Geothermal site

Head of Generation - Geothermal (Contact Energy)

Location: Wairakei, Taupo, New Zealand

We are searching for the next Head of Generation at our Wairakei (Taupo) Geothermal site – could this be you?

A vital role to the successful running of the power station, we are looking for someone who shares the sites’ strategy to be internationally recognised as a leader in safe, reliable and efficient generation operations and geothermal innovation.  In this role you will bring your strategic and operational leadership skills to the fore to deliver safe and efficient operations while focussing on continuous improvement to future proof the site, improve plant reliability and support and enable our people.  You will also contribute to Contact’s aspiration of leading the decarbonisation of New Zealand’s energy sector by 2022.

You will be a strong and engaging leader, always striving to get the best from your people.  Collaboration across the site and the portfolio are of upmost importance in this role so you must be someone who is highly skilled in this area.  You are also someone who is good at building strong and lasting relationships not only with team members, colleagues and peers but also local communities in around the Taupo region.

Roles like these don’t come along often so if you think you have the skills and experience to help take this power station forward, while working in a township famous for its geothermal activity and many other beautiful natural wonders, we would love to hear from you
