Seasonal Truck Drivers (Fixed-term)

Hawkes Bay - Napier

Napier Port is the gateway for goods flowing in and out of Central New Zealand and is at the heart of the Hawke’s Bay economy. We are driven to find better answers for our importers and exporters by leveraging technology, innovation, and the capability of our people.

We’re passionate about the safety of our people and are committed to all people going home safely every day.

Napier Port is predominately an export based operation. Around 80% of exports through the Container Terminal are driven by the fresh produce season, grown in and around Hawkes Bay, resulting in the ‘peak’ season for the Port and its busiest period.

Due to the peak season export demands, the Container Terminal experiences a significant increase in the number of containers handled. We are currently seeking Truck Drivers on a fixed-term basis, to transport containers from the Port, to the off-site Depot at Thames Street. We will be looking for fixed term truck drivers to work with us from late January/early February 2018 to late May 2018.

Truck Drivers will be operating up to 10 hours per shift, with a minimum of 40 hours per week (on any of the 7 days), for the duration of the fixed-term period.

 Key priorities for the role include:

  • Transporting containers to and from Napier Port/off site Depot at Thames Street
  • Provide service delivery to customer and product care standards
  • Safety – Zero Harm workplace through a Just Safety Culture

The successful Truck Drivers will be skilled and experienced in operating truck and trailer units, holding a Class 5 Driver Licence. Truck Drivers will have excellent work ethic, good communication skills and the ability to follow instructions and processes within a timely and safe manner.
