About the Role

We’re looking for a Plant Operator to join the team at our Christchurch Works site where we manufacture, process and despatch fertiliser. As a key member of our manufacturing team, you'll ensure the safe, effective operation of the manufacture plant to achieve planned production levels. By keeping machinery running at optimum levels - and safely - we're best placed to help our farmers/shareholders and you're best placed for a rewarding job with great scope for growth.

About You

Given the work environment and nature of the role, it’s essential you’re physically fit, and mechanically minded. Ideally you’ll be comfortable at the controls of a forklift, but if not, we can provide the training to get you there if you have a positive, can-do attitude.

To be successful in the role you will

  • Possess manufacturing or process plant experience
  • Enjoy working as part of a team
  • Be physically fit
  • Flexible with night and day shift hours
  • Be mechanically minded
  • Good communication skills
  • Have a reasonable level of computer literacy.


For all that you’ll bring, you can expect plenty in return, including:

  • Medical insurance
  • 5% Superannuation
  • Ongoing training
  • Excellent development opportunities across the co-operative
