Machine Enthusiast Wanted

Stump Grinder Operator/Mechanic
– North Shore Yard

Want to work outside, play with machines, and be part of a great team within a growing company?
Tree King are looking for someone to help create then fill the new combination role of stump grinder
operator/mechanic.

There are two main objectives for this role

Tree Removal Auckland

1) Running the stump grinding side of the business.

This will entail the operation of our walk-behind and hand-held stump grinders as well as a soon-to-be-delivered, remote controlled, tracked machine.

You don’t need to be an expert on stump grinders or even have used one before (although this would be beneficial) as we can teach you this.

A high degree of customer interaction will be required as the ability to work well under pressure and organise ones time to ensure work is completed on schedule.

You will also need to be physically fit (walk-behind machines require a bit of man-handling for efficient operation)

2) Mechanical repairs

A big part of arboriculture is the processing of branches, stumps, wood and other vegetation. The machinery that helps us do this gets a very hard life so your job will be to show it some love.

We run a very modern fleet and regularly replace equipment before it ages excessively but breakdowns are still a regular occurance. We don’t have a full workshop so the type of repairs undertaken in house will always be limited but as a minimum we want to minimize repair costs and downtime through ensuring regular maintenance and carrying out on-the-fly repairs to get jobs finished.

Other tasks will include anything in support of  the general arboriculture operations of the firm both on the North Shore and Warkworth locations. This will include working with the arboriculture crews.

Flexibility

The role will be somewhat shaped around skillset and other attributes of the winning candidate, so put on your thinking hats and how you could get this work done while producing maximum benefit for the company.

This job lends itself to flexibility. While stump grinding generally will need to be done within normal working hours (Monday-Saturday), the repair side of the role could suit being done after hours.

Several of our staff are on 4-day weeks and this could work for this role. We envision a 36 hour week.

– open to ideas with respect to the actual structure.

Specifics we need from you

– Strong mechanical skills. Previous experience as a mechanic or engineer would be ideal

– HT Licence or at least the ability to get one in short order (E.g. had a full car licence for at least 6 months)

– Good attitude – we want someone who wants to be here that we will enjoy working with

– Ability to legally work in New Zealand
