About the jobs:
As a Driver Operator for one of the largest infrastructure business in New Zealand, you will be involved in exciting projects requiring you to pick up civil work, predominantly the operation of heavy machinery.

  • Have a positive 'can do' attitude
  • Have a Class 4 or 5 license with WTR endorsement
