Are you the natural leader we have been searching for?

Rooney Earthmoving is a leading New Zealand civil contractor, specialising in earthmoving, irrigation, pipe and cable laying, cartage and transportation. Over the last four decades we've grown our 100% locally owned business based on strong principles of trust, reliability and customer satisfaction. This is an attitude that has served us well as we continue to provide our Central South Island customers with local knowledge and expertise on all things Earthmoving.

We're on the hunt for an experienced Manager; a fearless leader to take over the management and day-to-day operations of our Timaru Workshop, providing repairs on Earthmoving equipment as required. You'll be in charge of our specialist team of Mechanics; providing ongoing training, support and development along the way.

You'll also need to ensure our equipment is maintained or repaired to a high standard; in line with workshop protocols and the Rooney Earthmoving approach. You'll also be able to confidently follow MANGO and/or other systems so that maintenance details and WOFs are recorded and monitored.

As someone with proven experience in a leadership role, you love to share your mechanically tuned mind with those around you; and would even consider yourself to be a somewhat of a mentor.

Your ability to motivate the troops and unify your team is what sets you apart as a leader. Your mechanical know-how commands respect amongst your team, and your understanding of workplace safety provides an innocuous working environment. All backed up with an engineering, heavy mechanical or other relevant qualification.

Of course, you didn't get this far in your career without the basics. This role is ideal for a natural leader with hands on experience and also need to have outstanding communication skills and the ability to positively promote your ideas. Whether you're working in a team, or on your own, your capacity to show initiative and exercise good judgement will see you succeed in this role.

If you're not a local, that's alright. We can help subsidise- relocation costs for that special candidate looking to make this beautiful South Island landscape their new stomping ground. So if that sounds like you, and you're looking for a competitive salary, we'll move heaven and earth to get you here.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
