Brownrigg Agriculture is a large, progressive farming enterprise with operations across livestock and cropping. Our base is 20 minutes south of Hastings in sunny Hawke’s Bay, and we are about to head into our busiest time of year. We need some competent crew members to keep our well maintained truck fleet ticking over. You will have at least a couple of years of Class 5 driving experience under your belt. A key role is picking up our squash and onions from the field and delivering them to our packhouses – you need experience to be able to judge tight gateways and navigate unsealed tracks. Previous experience transporting livestock would be an advantage, though not necessary for our fixed term roles. We also do general cartage, carting fertiliser, wool, and the like. Our fixed term roles run through April 2021, but we are also looking for permanent drivers to get our team up to full strength. You will be physically fit and have a clean Full NZ Class 5 licence. You will have the flexibility to work extended hours if required – but know that we take our responsibility as a safe employer seriously. We rate reliability, a positive attitude, and good communication skills highly. What do we offer in return? Remuneration that recognizes skills and experience. Work that varies throughout the year. …
