Description:

Keen to take your driving career further?  Winstone Aggregates are the power behind some of Aotearoa’s most exciting construction projects.  Bring your strong work ethic and Class 5 driver’s licence to us, and we’ll support you in driving your career to wherever you want to take it.  

The opportunity:
Wondering what your new workday will look like?  You’ll be responsible for:
  • Driving a late-model truck and trailer unit carting bulk aggregates to customers in a safe and timely manner, and keeping accurate status records
  • Quality control of delivered products
  • Excellent customer service when representing the business
  • Efficient travel planning between sites, with regular contact with dispatch to report changes

Our business is committed to kaitiakitanga, protection of our country’s precious natural environment.  As a Winstone Aggregates driver, you can be proud of knowing that your mahi directly contributes to the way we champion sustainability in everything that we do.

About you:
Our drivers represent the business to our customers, so you’ll be someone with a solid work ethic, who takes pride in maintaining high personal standards for yourself and your ‘office’ (that’s your truck!)

You’re a team player who knows how to get along with your workmates and your customers, but you like the independence of working alone as well.

You’ve got drive and ambition, and that’s why we’ll back you all the way in developing your skills and growing your career.

Due to the nature of our industry, there’s going to be some heavy lifting – you don’t need to be a sports star, but you do need to have a reasonable level of fitness.  From your previous heavy vehicle experience, you’ll already know the importance of health and safety in the workplace, and share our culture of making sure everyone gets home safely.

Skillswise, we’re keen to talk if you can demonstrate: 
  • Experience operating a Front-End Loader, road ranger gearbox and driving heavy vehicles with unstable loads
  • Up to date and clean Class 5 New Zealand driver’s licence and experience in driving a class 5 truck
  • Working knowledge of reversing, jackknifing and tipping
  • Understanding of mix design, numeracy and written and computer literacy
  • Right to live and work in New Zealand
  • A healthy and positive attitude towards health and safety

Sounds great, what’s in it for me?
A career that’s concrete, that’s what!  In return for your mahi and commitment, we offer a great range of benefits, such as:
  • Driving well-maintained late-model trucks - one truck, one driver 
  • Working for a company that has a great culture
  • Access to our fantastic employee education fund
  • Fuel discounts and many other benefits
