The Green Team at our branch in Tamaki Makaurau is looking for a permanent full time Sprayer Operator to join the newly created membrane crew in our chipseal division. This is predominantly nightshift work.  

• Grow and develop in a supportive team who treat each other like Whanau
• Run a small crew – work alongside a QA technician

• FB employee share scheme, educational and welfare funds
• A significant portfolio of retail benefits across major NZ businesses such as ANZ, Z energy, PlaceMakers, Mico and Samsung. 
• Brand new PPE gear (that’s your own personal protective equipment)

You will be operating a Bitumen Distributor and be responsible for resealing and maintenance.  Work is not always in Auckland as this crew can travel to where their specialist skills are required so work so travel may be required at times.  

What you’ll bring to the role:
• Previous experience as a sprayer operator or in chip sealing
• Class 4 with WTR
• Dangerous Goods – ideal we can put you through that if needed
• A safety-first attitude – for yourself and the public
• Team player 
• Flexible, committed and reliable – will turn up rain or shine
• Passion for our industry and the willingness to work hard and learn
