About the company

The company is involved in a range of mechanical repairs to trucks, buses, and construction equipment

They are primarily working on late model products as result of their close associations with nearby Hanmer Springs with Culverden being a gateway location.

Skills we seek

We are looking for an experienced / qualified diesel mechanic to undertake repairs primarily to late model trucks and coaches.

There will be a variety of mechanical repairs in a small, friendly team of professional technicians.

There will be a smaller amount of involvement on construction equipment and possible also forestry gear so applicants that have experience both in the truck and bus sector as well as construction equipment will have a distinct advantage.

We will look at employing both NZ based or offshore candidates and the employer holds Talent Visa Accreditation with Immigration NZ making this role all the more desirable if your move to NZ is permanent.

We are particularly keen to speak to local candidates if they are available but all applications from suitably experienced candidates will be considered.


A high hourly rate is provided for, so too is an excellent work environment, additional incentives, and staff privileges after a qualifying period.
