Operating Maintenance Engineer

It’s not easy to keep up with the increasing global demand for their premier range of dairy products, but this rapidly expanding exporter has the recipe for success – Teamwork! Their new site is conveniently situated on the boundary of Auckland and the Waikato and houses the latest tech & fully automated processing machinery but it’s PEOPLE that make the magic happen. The team are proud of the positive work culture they’ve created, where new ideas thrive, and everyone shares the work as well as the reward. There is no better time to get on board with such a great group of people.

The purpose of this role is to keep the Canning Line humming – you will set up machinery, swap tooling, make sure it’s operating as it should, troubleshoot faults and repair as required. You will also carry out routine preventative maintenance on the line and monitor components for wear and tear.

Hours of work are 6 am to 6 pm Monday to Thursday but eventually, there will be a need to work a mix of days and nights in the future.
