Trainee Emulsion Sprayer Driver

Last updated 6 days ago
Job Type:Full Time

Our Penrose team is looking for a Trainee Emulsion Sprayer Operator to join their sealing team.

This is a great opportunity to start or revive your career with a reputable, reliable company – Downer! Training and development is par for the course. If you are an enthusiastic individual who is looking to develop their skills and gain experience as a Sprayer Operator, then this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for.

The role:
Working as part of a team, you’ll be involved in a number of road sealing activities, like reseals, first coats, patching and commercial work.

But what does that really mean? You’ll be spraying emulsion (the glue that holds the stones to the road basically).

It’s a bit more complicated than just that though, you’ll need to ensure the correct spray rates are happening, doing quality checks, driving the sprayer truck and looking after the plant (we’ve got some brand new sprayers that you’ll be working on too).

About you:
As you’ll be working on some pretty heavy machinery you’ll ideally bring with you a Class 4 Licence (but if not Class 2 is fine and we’ll help to train you up).

You’ll also be a team player and have experience and-or a keen interest in chip sealing work. You’ll couple this with:

  • A great work ethic – you’ll be part of a busy team and some long hours are required (but you’ll be rewarded accordingly)
  • A strong focus on Safety and Quality
  • Problem solving skills to solve daily challenges
  • Flexibility – some out of town travel will be required on occasion
  • A can-do attitude - this is a great opportunity to be trained as a Bitumen Sprayer Operator - a highly sought after skill in New Zealand!

In return we offer:
Join our bubble and be rewarded by working alongside a great crew with industry experts to learn from, Modern plant + equipment and a competitive remuneration, training and continuous opportunities for growth! We also provide full PPE & Uniform along with access to exclusive benefits and partnered discounts.
