PRUNNING AND WRAPPING - FIXED TERM, VINEYARD VACANCY - NZ Residents only
Start 27th April, 2021- 31st August, 2021 (Fixed Term Job opportunity, with view to move to permanent)
If you love to work outdoors, have a positive can-do attitude, and are mindful about doing things the right way the first time, we’d love you to join our family business. Grapeworx Marlborough is a successful family-owned and operated vineyard labour supplier in Marlborough. We value our employees, and aim to provide a positive working environment, where you can work with mutual respect, trust and understanding.
You will ideally have at least 1 season experience in vineyard pruning or wrapping, but we can also train you on the job.
You will work well with different nationalities including Thai, PNG, and Vanuatu.
We offer nationally recognised training, through the Primary ITO, and will actively help to upskill you.
To successfully secure this full time job, you will need to demonstrate the following attributes:
* Motivated to be part of a team to get the job done;
* Good communication skills;
* Ability to work well as part of a team, and on your own;
* Honest, hardworking, supportive of management and team mates;
* Current Full NZ Driver’s License is a plus, not a must;
* No criminal convictions;
* You must have New Zealand Residency.
As a vineyard worker, you will work closely with your supervisor to ensure that all vineyard operations run smoothly and efficiently, while focusing on your own quality workmanship, making the right cuts, and wrapping the correct number of vines to the wire.
You will love working outdoors with a motivated and highly-productive team. And will display an appetite and openness to improve your own skills.
Whilst training you will start on $22.10/hr, then working on contract (paid per vines pruned or wrapped) you can expect to earn more.
Holding a current First Aid Certificate is a bonus, but we can upskill you in this area if needed.
You must have a good knowledge of health and safety at work, and understand why this is important.
There will be a pre-employment drug test.
Only people eligible to work in this country should apply for this position.
Please provide evidence of your work visa or citizenship.
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
