Are you a human factors professional?

We are constantly on the lookout for skilled human factors and ergonomics professionals to join our team.

What you must possess are excellent communication skills, attention to detail and thoroughness, experience with a wide range of industries – and a sense of humour. If this sounds like you and you’d like to be considered next time we’re hiring, please get in contact with us today.

What you can expect if human error occurs in your business​.

Reputation

Negative media attention resulting from human error causes share prices to decline, customer confidence to wane and those indirectly associated with you (suppliers and partners) suffer losses too.

Cost

From the seemingly minor to major cases of human error - media has documented lost sales of up to $580 million. (NZ Herald, 21 Nov 2013)
