We are seeking applications for a skilled Maintenance Fitter who holds a relevant trade qualification or equivalent work experience, to join the team at our Christchurch Works site where we manufacture, process and despatch fertiliser.

About the Role

Reporting to the Maintenance Manager and working within a team of eight maintenance staff, you’ll be responsible for undertaking emergency breakdown, preventative, and predictive maintenance on our site’s plant, equipment and mechanical services. This equipment includes vibrating screens, mills, conveyors, pumps and more.

About You

Given the work environment and nature of the role, it’s essential you’re physically fit and comfortable working in confined spaces and at heights. Putting health and safety at the front of everything you do, you’ll be capable of identifying workplace hazards and continually look for improvements that we can make to our systems and processes.

To be successful in this role, you’ll ideally possess:

  • A relevant trade qualification or equivalent work experience.
  • Excellent communication skills along with a professional approach to your work.
  • A high level of energy & the ability to work in high pressure environments.
  • Experience working in an effective team environment.
  • Experience with rotating and / or materials handling equipment.

This role is on a rotating roster between the hours of 6.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday. However, to ensure our plant is running effectively, we’re looking for someone who is happy working additional hours, sometimes at short notice, and weekend work will occasionally be required.

For all that you’ll bring, you can expect plenty in return. We offer a competitive remuneration package which included superannuation and medical insurance, and an environment which values and promotes training and development.
