We’re looking for a customer-focussed individual to join the team at our busy Service Centre in New Plymouth 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. You will need to have previous front-end loader experience in order to be able to hit the ground running.

About the Role:

This is a permanent full time role and requires someone who is confident on a computer as you will be the go-to person providing administrative support to the team. Ideally you will also have experience in operating front end loaders in a warehouse / bulk fertiliser store environment with a computer-based stock management and ordering system. This could mean that one moment you’ll be helping a customer with their order; the next driving the loader to meet a dispatch deadline. There are seasonal demands which require flexibility in the hours you will be required to work. 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:

  • Good computer literacy with the ability to pick up our systems
  • H&S awareness and a ‘safety-first’ attitude
  • Experience in forklift and ideally front-end loader operation with relevant licenses (Class 2 ideally with W endorsement)
  • Experience in bulk and bag handling
  • Reasonable physical fitness and be comfortable working in the yard       
  • Customer service experience and be an excellent ‘people person’
  • The ability to work as a team and follow instructions is essential


For all that you'll bring to the role you can expect plenty in return:

  • Excellent benefits package (5% superannuation, medical insurance, allowances)
  • Career opportunities in a fantastic cooperative
  • Investment in training and development
  • Great company culture
