Excavator Operator Positions 2018 - New Zealand

Our partners New Zealand Skills in Demand are seeking qualified Excavator Operators for full time permanent roles in cities such as Christchurch, Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown. They offer a free service to place candidates in NZ roles. 

You will complete projects according to your experience – including completing underground service repair, subdivision and quarry work. You MUST have a current Full UK Drivers license that you have held for a minimum of two years to operate plant in New Zealand.

You must also have 5 years experience and an LGV or HGV license ready for NZ conversion.

A CV is a must. You must also be able to provide written references and an oral reference will be taken as part of the process. 

Permanent fulltime contracts are on offer. You will be “on the books” as opposed to working self-employed meaning you will enjoy 4 weeks paid annual leave, and your employer pays a levy to cover health insurance and contributes to your retirement savings scheme

Starting rate for qualified Excavator Operators in New Zealand is $20-$23 NZD per hour and will increase according to skills, experience and qualifications.

You will likely need a vehicle to transport yourself to your worksite.
