We’re looking for a customer-focused individual to join the busy team at our Store in Napier to help keep our operations running smoothly, safely and successfully. From blending bulk fertiliser and operating heavy machinery to processing computerised orders and selling to customers - your mix of practical skills, personality and professionalism means that nothing will be a problem. If you have loader and forklift experience this is great, but if not we can provide the training you need.

About the Role:

It’s a job that’s got variety: one moment you’ll be helping a customer with their order; the next driving the loader to meet a despatch deadline. This is a permanent full time role and would suit someone who has worked in a warehouse / bulk fertiliser store environment with a computer-based stock management and ordering system. You’ll need the desire and the ability to pick up our computer system and administrative processes.  If you like the idea of an enjoyable career with like-minded people, while contributing to the growth of your local community, this is the perfect place to make it happen.

Skills & Experience:

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • Reasonable physical fitness and be comfortable working in the yard       
  • Experience in forklift and ideally front-end loader operation with relevant licenses (Class 2 ideally with W and F endorsements)
  • Customer service experience and be an excellent ‘people person’
  • Experience using a computer or be capable of picking up Ravensdown’s ordering and stock management system
  • Experience in bulk and bag would be beneficial
  • The ability to work as a team and follow instructions is essential


So what can you expect in return? Well, you'll have plenty of autonomy, lots of interaction with local people, and stacks of opportunity to grow your career with one of New Zealand's most successful and respected co-operatives. We offer fantastic staff benefits (including medical insurances and 5% Superannuation to name a few) and an environment which values and promotes training and development.
