About you:
As you’ll be working on Taxi Cranes you’ll ideally bring with you current NZQA crane qualifications and a Class 5 Licence (We will still consider you if on a Class 4 as training can be provided).
You will also:

  • Have a strong commitment to safety, taking your time and doing things right the first time, every time
