Carys Everett, Tonkin & Taylor

Earning: $80-90,000
In a nutshell: Designing extensions to, and improvements of, landfills to meet environmental restrictions, including collection systems for gases and liquids.
Why? “I like working on real projects that get built rather than just theoretical or conceptual things.  I particularly like seeing my work put into practice.”

Pathway High school in Wales, Year 13: Physics, Maths, Advanced Maths
University of Bristol: Master of Engineering, majoring in Civil Engineering with Study Abroad

Carys Everett enjoyed maths and physics at school and her mother tried to persuade her to major in them at university. “But I discovered engineering, and thought, no, that’s for me, as it’s much more practical and hands on.”

At the moment Carys is using her maths and physics skills to help us dispose of our waste more responsibly. She works on the design of landfills, which involves design of stable slopes, filling plans to determine what order the landfill should be filled in, design of details to minimise vermin and wind-blown rubbish, and designing systems to collect the noxious liquid leachates and greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.

“Landfill work isn’t glamorous,” she says. “But it’s very important to get it right.”

“I got involved in landfill work as the hands-on problem solver at a site in Wellington and now I’m designing the next phase of the project,” she says. “Being involved with the project from one stage to the next is very cool.”

“The original landfill was just an unlined rubbish dump but now it’s much better – we collect the leachate and gas, and anything else that might escape is well contained. And [the landfill operators] get on really well their neighbours and there are hardly any complaints.”

Carys has recently moved up to the Auckland office to get some more design experience in specific areas. “There’s still a lot of variety, and a mix of site and office work,” she says. “And it’s nice to get the opportunity to work alongside everyone in the team as well.”

“There are a variety of people in engineering,” she says. “I think generally you want to be fairly practical minded, but you can either be the details person who knows the technical stuff or you can be the big picture thinker who sees the broader opportunities.”

“One of the main challenges of the job is communicating technical things to people in a non-technical way. Once you can justify your decision on site, people are more prepared to go along with it.”

She’s kept her skills as a civil engineer quite broad. In the UK she worked on flood defence and water treatment projects, and her first job in New Zealand was for the Earthquake Commission (EQC) in the Bay of Islands.
