The opportunity:

You need to be a hands-on type of person who likes working with machinery. If you’re keen and willing to learn you will receive a well-rounded introduction to our business. From there it’s up to you!

  • Three years of on-the-job paid training
  • Regular pay increases on achievement of credits throughout your apprenticeship
  • Excellent remuneration opportunities upon completion
  • Nationally and internationally recognised NZQA qualification
  • $4,000 tool advance
  • Location opportunities throughout New Zealand
  • Multiple career pathway options in a global industry with a secure future
  • Free medical insurance
  • Trade prices for automotive parts

To be successful you will need:

Applicants ideally will have achieved Level 2 NCEA and have completed a pre-trade course or have work experience in a related mechanical/trade field. A full driver’s license is essential.
