Aerowork is our agricultural aviation business providing aerial application of fertiliser, operating fixed-wing aircraft covering many areas of the North and South Island.

We’re seeking expressions of interest for casual employees as our Agri Fixed Wing Ground Support as part of Ravensdown Aerowork. We have bases in Te Kuiti, Taumarunui, Stratford, Raetehi, Taihape, Hunterville, Whanganui, Masterton, Nelson, Marlborough, Rangiora, and Waimate/Oamaru – and we’re always looking for talented operators to be part of the team in relief positions.

In this role, you’ll work closely with the pilot to service our farmer customers. You’ll be responsible for loading and refuelling our fixed wing aircraft in a safe and professional manner, shifting loaders between loading sites and maintaining the mobile plant. We’re looking for casual positions, which means working as and when required, with no set hours or day of work. This role would ideally suit someone with flexibility who is looking for part time hours, but ideally with the ability to work full-time hours during our peak seasons (Spring and Autumn).

Due to the location, the successful candidate ideally needs to be located close to one of the bases mentioned. The hours for this role are variable and weather dependent, and weekend work will be required.

About You

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • Ideally previous Loader or Truck Driving experience
  • Good knowledge of the region (as listed in the bases we operated from)
  • Experience handling heavy machinery
  • Flexibility and availability to respond to business requirements and weather conditions
  • A commitment to safety and quality
  • Great communication skills

If you have a class 4 license and DG endorsement that’s an advantage, but if not, for the right candidate we can provide the training to get you there as long as you have a positive, responsible, can-do attitude.
