Independent Director


Ashburton Contracting Ltd


Ashburton Contracting Limited (ACL) has an established reputation as a leading civil contracting business working across Mid-Canterbury and surrounding areas.  With a current workforce of over 150, ACL performs strongly in a competitive market through delivering quality outcomes to client expectations.


ACL is a civil contractor specialising in horizontal construction and drainage, quarrying and aggregate production, ready mix concrete, rural contracting, surfacing, and utility management. It also operates a modern truck and heavy vehicle fleet workshops and a Readymix Association certified concrete plant. ACL undertakes all work in an environment where health, safety, quality and environmental management are paramount.


ACL is a Council-owned trading organisation that is governed by an Independent Commercial Board of Directors.  The Chief Executive Officer reports to the Board and the business operates independently of the Council under a Statement of Intent.  ACL is required to achieve identified profit targets for its shareholder.  The ACL Board has a focus on sustainable growth, innovation, strategy and maintaining high levels of health, safety, quality and environmental management.


The incoming director will have experience within the civil contracting or an aligned sector and will ideally have knowledge of heavy vehicle workshop operations or fleet management.  Proven strategic management skills, combined with an understanding of culture development, sustainability, environmental, health & safety and quality responsibilities from a governance perspective are also key. The vision and drive to provide governance to support ACL’s ongoing development is essential. The Board meets monthly and the incoming director can be based anywhere across New Zealand although in-person attendance is preferred.
