We're on the lookout for

Graduate Engineers





Auckland and Christchurch


31 March 2024

We're looking for four entry-level graduates to work across our main disciplines. 



You’ll be doing anything from site investigations and technical design to project management tasks and analysis and interpretation. One of our graduates told us recently ‘I haven’t done the same thing twice’ and that sums it up really, you’ll find variety here – working outdoors on a site, at the office, or sometimes from home.

You’ll work on a wide range of projects too, supported by a diverse team of technical experts. 


You'll have:

  • A passion for sustainable infrastructure and creating communities that thrive.

  • Strong problem-solving skills and the ability to work through creative solutions to complex challenges.

  • Initiative, hunger to learn, and an openness to take on new opportunities.

  • A Bachelor of Civil or Natural Resources Engineering.


We’re a proudly New Zealand owned consultancy of 100 staff with offices in Auckland and Christchurch. Passionate about great engineering, and technical excellence, we provide a range of solutions to clients in the energy, land and water sectors across Aotearoa and the Pacific. 

Our specialist capabilities cover civil, water, geotechnical and environmental engineering disciplines.

We are the sweet spot - large enough to offer incredible career opportunities, and small enough that everyone knows your name. We don’t stand on hierarchy at Riley. We are a workplace where transparency is valued and collaboration is king.


  • A Graduate Kickstart Payment to help you transition from student to professional.

  • A dedicated and supportive development framework to grow and advance your career, as well as paying your professional membership.

  • A Wellbeing Allowance and EAP service to keep you feeling your best.

  • The ability to purchase up to four weeks additional leave.

  • A buddy, a graduate cohort that meets monthly, and access to technical experts. 

  • An active social club with team sports, ski trips, BBQ’s and more. 

  • Additional parental leave, long service leave, and study leave.

  • Bonus Scheme.

  • Flu shot, fruit baskets, morning teas, the list goes on!
