It has taken people from all walks of life, with a common vision and focused attitude, to make Mainfreight one of New Zealand’s finest success stories. From our humble beginnings in the 1970’s with just one second-hand Bedford truck, we are now a global yet united team of over 7,000 strong. Will you be next to join us?

As an experienced storeperson you’re a key player in our Owens Warehousing Christchurch crew. You’ve got your finger on the pulse of the depot and your eyes and ears open to what’s happening. You work well unsupervised because you’re driven and work-proud kind of person with high standards. You always get the job done, safely and efficiently. You have excellent communication skills and a strong belief that the customer is KING.

You will have some knowledge of the transport industry and must have your forklift license along with experience on a reach truck, on-going training will be provided (experience with Dangerous Goods and a Man-Up/Picker would be great to have too). 

Ideally the successful applicant will have:

  • A passion to “do it right first time” 
  • A “can do” attitude and a willingness to go the extra mile 
  • Leadership skills
  • Perfection and Quality Values
  • Hunger to bring our team into the next level

This is a fixed term contract until 20 December 2019.

To be considered for this position you will need to pass a Pre-employment Background Check and Drug and Alcohol Test.

Join us on an exciting journey as we work towards our 100-year vision.
