  • Hold a current NZ welding certificate/ticket
  • Proven experience with ARC and MIG applications
  • Safe work practices 
  • Current drivers licence
  • Machining / Turning experience a bonus

What’s great about this role?
You can expect a fair hourly rate that reflects your experience and skill. You will be working with good equipment that is well kept. You will get the chance to get out of the workshop and complete site based work.
