Southeys Group Ltd 

Here's your chance to work for one of NZ's best known Hydro Excavation / Vacuum loading Companies.   New Zealand owned and operated.

We offer good pay with annual reviews and opportunities to move into different roles.  We offer overtime, a voluntary bonus scheme is available, and paid training are all part of the Southeys way.  If you have a change of circumstances, we often go the extra mile to work this out with you, we are often able to help with achieving work life balance.

We do work breakfasts for many safety meetings, schedule social events and encourage work bbq's.  

Join us and you will be working with a good team on some interesting jobs so you will appreciate the good quality gear and NZ designed and made trucks that really do the business.

Great team environment, on the job training, plenty of variety, occasional out of area work if you are interested.  Main work areas available include Auckland, Wellington, Tauranga.
Your day could include discussing work with customers, planning the day, representing the company in a professional way and using our easy online platform to record the days activities. 

Outdoor work, using high-pressure hoses, you will need to enjoy working outside and comfortable with a bit of mud.

Drivers will need:
  • Minimum HT, we’d prefer class 4
  • Recent truck driving experience 
  • Physical fitness – you’ll be operating the hydro gear and be working hard all-day 
  • Your own transport – we are based in Kumeu, North West Auckland and you need to get to work early to pick up the truck 
  • Good manners and a good idea of customer service – we’re the best and we want to stay that way. 
  • Good knowledge of Health and Safety on a site & truck - and actually care about it.! 
  • A few clues about mechanical gear and Hydro Excavation would be an advantage but not essential 
  • Experience with paperwork and decent hand writing 
Drivers Assistants will be advantaged with the above, but full training available.  Class 1 licence helpful.

What you’ll get:
  • You’ll work around 50+ hours a week, sometimes a bit more depending on the job
  • It’s mainly Monday to Friday, with the occasional Saturdays
  • Solid company, with lots of work on 
  • Good team & top gear 
  • Excellent, modern trucks
Southey's is an equal opportunity employer so if you don’t fit the typical truck/operator type, don’t be shy… apply anyway – as long as you’re fit, healthy and can do the job, we’ll give your application a fair go.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
