Reporting to and supporting the Branch Manager, your duties will include the repairs and maintenance of all functional elements in our campervans and motorhomes.

The duties concentrate around the living area of the vehicle and not so much the mechanical side of the vehicle.

As a Vehicle Maintenance Officer you will also provide technical advice and assistance to the manager and your team to ensure that we meet and exceed customer service standards and guest expectations.

You'll enjoy the opportunities to show initiative and take on a variety of tasks each day.

Being in the tourism industry, we are operating seven days a week and this position requires your availability five days per week from 8 am to 5 pm, which will also include rotating weekend rosters.

We are looking for a team player with good work ethics. A relevant trade qualification (e.g. RV manufacturing, cabinetmaking, carpentry, shop fitting) will be highly regarded but experience counts.

In addition you should have:

- a minimum of two years practical experience in a maintenance role (e.g. hotels/motel/vehicles/caravans or related maintenance),
- an open driver's license and good driving record,
- good attention to detail,
- the ability to work unsupervised within a team environment,
- a positive can-do attitude,
- reliability and good time management skills,
- the ability to meet deadlines.

Key criteria and responsibilities

- Undertake repairs, preventive maintenance and refurbishment of our fleet,
- Provide reliable and accurate maintenance knowledge, expertise and practical application to minimize downtime of the fleet,
- Sound understanding of technical use of specific tools,
- Relative knowledge of facilities maintenance,
- Excellent written/verbal communication skills,
- Intermediate computer skills,
- High standards of housekeeping throughout the workshop.

Culture and Benefits

We offer an attractive salary package and you will be able to take advantage of our generous staff rental policy.

If you are looking for a largely autonomous and challenging, yet, rewarding role within a small and supportive team, and you believe you possess the required skills and experiences, then please apply now.

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