Job Description

  • Join a dynamic team
  • Lots of variety
  • Gain some great experience

What you will do
 
This is a great opportunity to join a small supportive team based in Kauri Point. The NZDF Explosive Ordnance Technician is responsible for the issue, receipt, inspection, maintenance, assembly, repair and breakdown of Explosive Ordnance in the depot. In addition, you will also be required to assist with logistic disposal and explosive stevedoring operations.
 
What we need
 
We are ideally looking for a person with experience as an explosive ordnance technician level 1 or you may have been previously employed by NZDF as an Army Ammunition Technician, Air Force Armament Technician or civilian Explosive Ordnance Technician.
 
We realise the experience and skillset required are hard to find, so we would also consider a person who can demonstrate good mechanical knowledge and a sound technical background. Due to the nature of the role you will be handling and maintaining complex items so you need to be able to interpret technical publications and drawings aiding the maintenance of these items. Meticulous attention to detail is key.
 
In addition to the practical skills, we are also seeking a person with very good interpersonal skills who can relate to a wide range of people and operate in small teams.

Naturally within this environment, you will need the ability to maintain a high level of concentration and heightened situational awareness at all times when handling or working with explosives or chemicals.

Stevedoring/dogman duties also form part of this role. It would be preferable if you have a class 2 driver's licence with Dangerous Goods and Forklift Endorsements.

A full NZ driver's licence is essential for this role and there is occasional travel outside of Auckland - typically to Waiouru and back.

  • The delivery of all depot level logistic functions associated with the safe procurement, introduction into service, inventory management, storage, maintenance, distribution and disposal of all NZDF ammunition, explosives and associated non-explosive stores in order that the NZDF can train, fight and win.
  • Optimising the delivery of quality, timely and cost effective munitions to support NZDF's capabilities, this includes: through life munitions management; compliance and governance; and technical advice.
