It’s about education and support. Regular sessions from experts on resilience and wellbeing and EAP services available to people when they need help.

It’s about good disciplines, systems, and processes. Both Filtec and our selected contractors are ISO 45001 accredited for our health and safety practices.

It’s about continuous improvement. We are continuously improving our performance through finding safer ways to perform and execute our work both onsite and offsite.

We’re providing purposeful, rewarding work and a great team experience

It begins with a shared purpose. Our people say it’s easy to feel you are making a difference in a team with a shared purpose of ‘Making Water Safer’.

It’s about being in a team that inspires you. 97% of our team say they feel engaged with their team. We enjoy each other and bring the best out in each other.

It’s about doing cool stuff. With over 30 years in the industry Filtec has an impressive project portfolio delivering multi-million-dollar projects throughout Australasia. Our leading position is largely thanks to the excellent quality, work ethic and performance of our team.

At Filtec there is no shortage of exciting and varying projects coming through the door. You will have the opportunity to work across multiple industry sectors, develop your skillset and work closely with our in-house experts.

We’re making sure our people grow and achieve their aspirations

We’re proud that 91% of our people say we coach and grow our team’s capability.

It’s about understanding our people’s aspirations. Our Personal Success Planning (PSP) program talks with people quarterly about their satisfaction, their development needs, their aspirations. We put development plans in place and work hard to deliver on them.  

It’s about opportunity. In a fast-growing business there’s always opportunity for our people to stretch and try new things. New projects, new products, new technology, new customers and the constant process of strengthening our business for an exciting future.

It’s having a value called ‘Act Like an Owner’. We encourage our people to get involved in decision making, business planning, bringing forward their ideas. We encourage people not to ‘stay in their lane’ but look around, take ownership and make the fullest contribution they want to.

It’s about an Extended Leadership Team (ELT). A unique feature of our business is its Extended Leadership Team. A group, currently thirteen, of high potential young leaders who join our General Managers and MD in running Filtec. They help form strategy, lead implementation, champion key initiatives and, in the case of our Culture Club – they shape the future.  

It’s about structured development.  Every year we’re adding to our development framework. More structured training, more mentors and coaches, more professional and personal development. We  offer apprenticeship programmes and graduate training programmes, including supervision for IPENZ registration for engineers wanting to complete the CPENG qualification. Our Skills Matrix ensures that the skills of the team match the skills required for our projects.

We’re building a high trust environment that’s fun to work in

The last few years have been tough on people and business. People have had a lot to worry about.  Through all of that, we’re proud to hear 97% of our people trust Filtec.

And life’s too short not to have fun at work. Which is why we’re pleased to hear 91% of our people say they enjoy each other’s company.

It’s about open communication. Our leaders work hard at sharing information, in good times and bad, keeping people updated on what’s happening and why. Each year our MD tours the company with a Roadshow – sharing and debating results, strategy, prospects, key initiatives and listening. Our Extended Leadership Team communicate what’s happening in the business and ‘take the pulse’ wherever they go.

It’s about doing what we say we will do. We explain why we make decisions, and we hold each other accountable.

It’s about a kind, passionate and proactive team culture. We offer the opportunity to work with a highly skilled and supportive team consisting of all experience levels. We also run a social club to create further team bonding activities for the team.

It’s about recognising that people have lives outside FILTEC. Filtec recently initiated a Flexible Work Policy which gives team members the benefit of a hybrid work environment between home and the office. 75% say this new policy will benefit them.

Ultimately, it’s about ‘Making Water Safer for our Communities’

If you must work, then work for a purpose you can be proud of and passionate about. Our people go home each day knowing they’ve helped make water safer for their communities.

It’s about helping our communities more broadly. We achieve this not only with advanced water and wastewater process solutions, but also supporting non-profit organisations. Filtec has been a long sponsor of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust since 1997. Filtec holds ISO 14001 environmental accreditation and ISO 9001 quality certifications.
