Location : Palmerston North | Listed : Thursday, 12 April | Type : Temporary + Full-time

We are currently recruiting for a full-time temporary Workshop Administration role based in Palmerston North, working 7am-5pm Monday to Friday, starting yesterday.

This role is extremely busy. We are looking for someone with attention to detail, fast and accurate data entry, a robust attitude with patience for this position.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, please read on...

Hireways is a family owned and extremely successful company that has been growing by looking after their customers with good old fashioned friendly customer service and providing quality machinery for hire.

They have built their reputation on quality gear that can be relied on. They source their equipment locally, nationally and internationally to hire out in the lower North Island. If you have driven between their Wellington and Palmerston North branches you will have seen their equipment at work shaping roads of national significance, on the farm or at homes.

Hireways manage quick response repairs and proactive maintenance programs, across the extensive range of hire plant and machinery. This is where you come in...

Due to growth and demand they are needing the assistant of a Workshop Administrator to work directly in their extremely busy workshop.

Working 7am-5pm Monday to Friday, you will be in the hub of the workshop, dealing with all facets of the day to day administration duties for the mechanics of the operation. From opening the first job of the day, getting a PO number, to closing the job once the work has been completed by one of the 13 trade staff with all parts used recorded. This is an extremely busy role with 35 to 40 jobs being actioned and completed daily, therefore I am looking for the following:

  • Fast and accurate data entry skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Someone not afraid to ask questions
  • Resilient and patient

You may have had experience in a workshop prior which would definitely be an advantage or you are an administration superstar - if so, we want to hear from you.

Due to the nature of this job and the locality of the office being within the workshop itself, the dress code will require steel capped boots to be worn in the workplace along with a hi-vis vest.

If you feel you hold the key attributes of what we are looking for, please Apply directly to this role and Christine Hanning will be in contact with you in the first instance.

Please Note:

Only those who hold NZ Residency or a valid working visa will be considered for this role
