Our Operators and Labourers undertake general designated tasks onsite, they are pro-active, and safety focused and enjoy working for an organisation where hard work is recognised and where they can build a career and not just do a job.

- Full clean New Zealand Driver’s License Class 1-4, WTR
- Concrete, Roading and Infrastructure experience
- Strong focus on health and safety not only for yourself, your colleagues but also the public
- Self-motivated with a positive attitude and the ability to think for yourself
- A high level of physical fitness due to the physical nature of the role
- Be reliable, honest and a flexible team player
In other words, we want someone who is reliable, fit and healthy who will turn up on time every day with a positive safety focussed attitude!
Successful candidates will be required to pass a pre-employment medical, drug test and MOJ check.
