There has never been a better time to join Winstone Aggregates.  We are the team behind some of Aotearoa’s most exciting commercial, infrastructural and residential construction projects, and right now we are recruiting for a Quarry Operator for our fixed crushing plant in Otaki.

No direct experience necessary – if you’ve got the right attitude, we’ll provide full training and support to help you develop a career that’s concrete.

About the role:
This role is full of variety – you’ll never be bored!

As a Winstone Aggregates Operator, you’ll be responsible for:
  • The operation of fixed machines for production and non-production purposes, such as rock sorting and crushing
  • Assisting with a variety of daily site-specific tasks to promote the continued operation of a safe and efficient site
  • Ensuring your work area and equipment is prepared, maintained, cleared and reported on in accordance with site safety plan

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

About you:
For a start, you’re hungry to learn and develop, with a great attitude and work ethic that’s second to none.

You don’t need to have previous experience in a similar role, but you’re mechanically minded and feel confident in your ability to learn the required skills – with our full support of course!

You’ve got the energy and planning skills to prioritise a few competing tasks at once, ensuring work is completed on time.  Proactive with good communication skills, it’s second nature to you to let your colleagues and customers know when work is completed, or where you’ve identified delays or risks.  

We pride ourselves in providing a safe working environment, so you’ll share our commitment to mitigating risks and getting you and your teammates home safely.

We back our operators 100% in developing their skillset, but to get things started we need to know you have:
  • A full, clean Class 1 New Zealand driver’s license
  • Wheels, tracks and rollers endorsement and small excavator experience an advantage
  • A great willing to learn attitude and not afraid to put in some hard mahi
  • A decent level of physical fitness – for the odd heavy lifting 

Sounds great, what’s in it for me?  
A career that’s concrete, that’s what!  We also offer a great range of benefits, such as:
  • A guaranteed 40-hour work week 
  • Full training and development
  • Fuel discounts
  • Access to our fantastic Employee Education Fund
