  • Keen on a Technical timber industry role?
  • Experienced operating mobile plant and machinery?
  • Join the team at Red Stag in Rotorua!

  • An opportunity has arisen for timber drying operators to join the Red Stag team. Whilst timber industry experienced candidates are ideal, we offer specialised training for the right candidates to become a qualified Kiln Operator. Full training and course costs will be covered to complete the New Zealand Certificate in Timber Drying Level 4.

    The successful candidate will be required to join a 24/7 roster when fully competent and able to work unsupervised, therefore the willingness and ability to work flexible day, night and weekend shifts in the future, is essential.

    Initially, during the training period, hours of work will be Monday to Friday from 6.00am to 2.30pm or Monday to Friday 4.00pm to 2.30am, and then training will include gaining experience with the night and weekend shifts.

    The preferred candidate will have completed a minimum L2 NCEA Qualification and be physically fit to meet the demands of the role. Effective communication, a reliable work record and demonstrated initiative is required. Experience with machinery and kiln operations would be an advantage.

    Remuneration is negotiable based on prior experience and will be reviewed as training is completed, and competency shown on the job.

    The role is required to operate mobile plant and therefore a current and full driver's licence is required.

    Other duties include:
    • Training in the safe preparation and recording of timber charges
    • Monitoring of process and quality of dried timber products
    • Operation of a loader
    • Maintenance of kiln equipment as required.
