In true kiwi tradition Bakeworks started with that "can-do" attitude, loads of awesome ideas and not much of anything else! Way back then (2001) our customers were crying out for more allergy friendly food they could actually eat! While our early loaves were less successful, we stuck at it until we nailed the best around. Over a decade on and you can find our range in all corners of NZ!

This is a hands-on role that will see you responsible for both working in and managing/driving our packing team (4-5 people) along with coordinating the shifts so that they run smoothly and efficiently. Other responsibilities will include overseeing and improving all packing systems and processes, operating and troubleshooting all packing machinery and handling any maintenance or repairs, quality control of products being packed and liaising with the management team regarding production to name a few. This role will generally see you working 4-5 days a week (10 hours p/day).

So what does it take to be successful in this role?

  • Previous experience in machine operation - this is a must!
  • Strong leadership skills - previous experience in managing/supervising and inspiring a team is preferred but not essential
  • A never say never attitude!

  • The ability to manage systems and processes
  • Previous experience in Lean Manufacturing is preferred but not essential
