Reporting to the Engineering Lead, these positions are critical in providing engineering and mechanical services to the plant, including the maintenance of industrial equipment.

About you:

Successful candidates will ideally have previous experience in the food, dairy or pharmaceutical industry and the ability to not just 'do the job', but to use their analytical and problem-solving skills to provide top level service to the manufacturing plant. Working as part of a maintenance team, candidates will have good interpersonal skills and an attitude for getting stuck in to get the job done.

- Good understanding of workplace H&S.
- Competent in MIG and TIG welding Mild steel, Stainless and Aluminium.
- Boiler Ticket (Class 2) – Preferred but not essential.
- Refrigeration experience – Preferred but not essential.

Role responsibilities include repairs, maintenance, alterations and additions to plant, equipment, and systems. Throughout the main harvesting season approx. Jan-Aug there will be rotational shift work, as the plant operates 24 hours a day between Monday to Sunday. We are very lucky to enjoy a quieter off season over the early summer months and enjoy a great work life balance.

What to do now!

Push APPLY, there’s no harm in having the conversation. If you are interested in using your mechanical skills on a large industrial site and like the idea of working for one of New Zealand’s leading food exporters, we’d love to hear from you.
