This is a rare opportunity for a performance / motorsport enthusiast to join a top performance shop in Auckland.
We are looking for a highly skilled technician to join this specialised team.

Currently NZ is in a level 4 lockdown due to COVID-19. All Automotive Employment NZ's clients are either closed or working remotely. We encourage you to make your application, regardless so that we can identify those that we can assist as soon as decision makers return.

Do not expect an immediate reply - this is not possible at present.

We have a plan to assist.

You will enjoy a great variety of duties in your day working on a large range of vehicles including classic American muscle cars and late model Japanese cars too.
Duties and responsibilities will include:
  • Race and rally car preparation
  • Servicing, maintenance, and set up
  • Repair work including engine and transmission rebuilds
  • Modifications
  • Upgrades
  • Fabrication and welding
  • Basic electrical work

First prize will be a trade qualified technician with extensive performance vehicle experience but qualified applicants who possess similar experience will also be considered for this role.
The successful applicant will have the following skills, experience, and attributes:
  • Highly experienced with performance / motorsport vehicles

In return
Opportunities to work in the motorsport sector do not come around very often.
An excellent hourly rate is on offer for high end skills.
You will work Monday to Friday but may sometimes be required to attend events so a genuine interest in the performance / motorsport world is essential to this role.
