Working for VTNZ

- an automotive technician with either NZ Trade Certificate, National A-Grade Registration, or NZ Advanced Trade Certificate or equivalent (N.B. overseas qualifications will need to be assessed by NZQA) + 3 years' relevant workshop experience performing heavy vehicle maintenance and repair work
- an automotive technician with either National Certificate in Automotive Engineering, National Registration or equivalent + 3 years' relevant work experience
- a person who has worked in full-time employment carrying out repairs and maintenance to all safety aspects of heavy motor vehicles for at least 5 years' cumulatively.

- Plus a minimum class 2 license (preferred 2-5 license classes) or equivalent

Outstanding scope to grow will be provided through our training centre, supporting our staff with development opportunities so you can thrive with us. We also offer a competitive remuneration package including:
