Job Description

Driver - Papakura Military Camp
*       Great opportunity to establish yourself within the transport industry
*       Join an effective team
*       Driving role with a difference
This role supports the 2nd Combat Service Support Battalion in the preparation and conducting of operations. Within this role you will be assisting in the servicing and maintenance of the vehicle fleet and undertaking driving tasks within the greater Auckland and Northern Region.
Typically your day can involve carrying troops, customer drop offs, VIP tasks and being involved in stores. This role is a little different in that you will also be involved in the basic servicing of vehicles i.e. oil and filter changes, liaising with service agents and picking up and delivering of vehicles.
The role has a strong customer service element to it which requires good interpersonal skills and a real service delivery focus. We are seeking a person who is motivated, committed and has a high standard or personal presentation. It's important that you are respectful of others and can work well within a team of mixed ages and gender.
Ideally you will already have a good amount of driving time under your belt and hold a current clean Class 5 Licence. You may be looking for a lifestyle change from line haul or delivery work or even seeking a driving role with a few more elements to it. We may also consider a person with a clean Class 2 Licence who is seeking to establish themselves within the transport industry.
It would be a definite advantage if you have a D, F or P class endorsement.
Although this role operates from Monday to Friday from 8am - 4.30pm there may be the occasional requirement to work outside of normal business hours. A reasonable degree of physical fitness is also required. This is a great opportunity to join a dynamic organisation that offers many benefits to its employees such as 5 weeks annual leave, life and income protection insurance.
