We are looking for an experienced Technical Trainer to work for Mazda New Zealand.

The company

Since 1972, Mazda has been offering New Zealanders vehicles that are a little out of the ordinary. During that time, as well as meeting the nation's everyday motoring needs, Mazda have introduced an array of innovative and lifestyle vehicles.

The national headquarters for Mazda New Zealand is located in Mt Wellington, Auckland. In keeping with Mazda New Zealand’s innovative corporate profile the work environs are modern and spacious. Natural light sourced from the internal Japanese garden adds a unique feel to the workplace and this is complemented by purpose built facilities to support the dealer network.

The role

  • The position of Technical Trainer will be a teaching role, conducting and administering technical training courses for Repair Technicians from Mazda dealerships at the National Training Centre in Auckland
  • These courses include both classroom and practical elements which will occasionally require rewriting and updating
  • Over time, the successful applicant will be expected to assist with development of new courses and e-learning
  • Administration duties will include management of invitations, registrations, and administration of Mazda’s online Learning Management System
  • The Technical Training role will complement that of the current Training Manager, who will be responsible for training development and planning. Both roles will ultimately report to the National Service Manager



Applicants will require the following skills, experience, and attributes:

  • A technical background in electronics, engineering, or automotive
  • Superior verbal and written communication skills
  • Polished personal grooming
  • Above-average standards of computer literacy
  • Technical experience with the Mazda product would prove advantageous but the desire to build a long career with Mazda New Zealand and displaying the competencies outlined above will take precedence


In return

Remuneration will prove attractive as will the additional benefits such as a brand new company car, fuel, an active social club, superannuation, buying privileges, and bonuses. It is little wonder the average employment tenure at Mazda NZ is a staggering fourteen years!
