Packaging Machine Operator Day Shift (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )

Full Time


  Marlborough, Marlborough

We are the largest wine packaging plant in New Zealand, with five packaging lines capable of producing 42,000 bottles per hour. We employ over 200 Marlburians in a range of roles and actively sponsor many events in the community we all live and play in. 

We are loud and proud about our continuous improvement ethos – leading the way in Lean Manufacturing nationally. We work hard in a fast paced environment, bottling and packaging wines that have brought Marlborough to the front of the world stage AND we have a great time doing it!

We are always looking for new team members who:

· Want to work for a local business that makes a difference in their community

· Want to work as part of a team that is working towards the same goal

· Are not afraid to offer new ideas that will keep us on our path of continuous improvement 

· Welcome change and remain adaptable to new ideas themselves

· Will enjoy the process of learning how to operate our robots and packaging machines and be committed to continuously upgrading their own knowledge of the packaging process

· Enjoy having their weekends free to get out and about in our awesome region

Our packaging lines are largely automated, so we are looking for operators who can work in a fast paced industry and who have great trouble shooting skills. Previous experience operating packaging line machines is ideal, however not essential as long as you have some mechanical aptitude. Above all else – we are looking for the right attitude to be the perfect fit for our team.

We operate a 24 hour facility with the majority of our team working 12 hour shifts four days a week, sometimes five during our busy season. These hours may sound perfect to you, or like a nightmare - don’t let that stop you from applying - we are happy to negotiate the perfect hours, for the perfect candidate.

In return for joining the team we will provide you with training and development opportunities, the chance to upskill in our industry and a starting rate between $18.50 - $21.00 per hour depending on experience.

Our deal breakers:

· Applicants MUST be a New Zealand Citizen or Resident

· Must be able to pass a pre-employment drug and alcohol test

· Pre-employment psychometric testing will be conducted
