Marine Electrics NZ Limited focuses primarily on the marine leisure sector, with some commercial work mixed in. It has a full time position available immediately for a qualified Marine Electrical & Electronics Technician.
Background: We are looking for someone with a proven background as an Electrical/Electronics Technician with not less than 3 years’ practical experience.

Technology is constantly changing, and so we need someone that is currently working with these systems and who proactively seeks to keep up with the latest trends and developments.
Much of the work has close parallels to the duties of an Automotive Electrician, as well as an industrial electrician working with 230V.
Main responsibilities: Your primary role will be electrical & electronic fault-finding, service and installation; however, on occasions the job will also require some basic mechanical, boat plumbing and carpentry work, such as cutting out panels. Therefore, our preference will be someone who possesses a range of complementary skills & and has an eye for detail, coupled with a practical can-do approach.
You must also be someone who takes genuine pride in excellent workmanship and a job well done.
You will be expected to operate with a high level of autonomy, and therefore you’ll be adept at organising and managing your own time and be completely reliable.
Much of the work will require you to squeeze into small or difficult-to-access spaces on boats, or to access jobs via ladders and gantries whilst moving tools and equipment.
The successful applicant will be well-presented, as you will be coming into direct contact with customers. A high level of written and verbal English competence is essential.
This can be a demanding industry; clients have high expectations so you will need to cope well under pressure and deliver consistently excellent results.
You will have a full NZ driver’s license and a keen interest in the marine industry, even if coming to it from other sectors.
Package and Hours of Work: Wage and package details will be discussed in an interview and will reflect the applicant’s level of skill. Suffice to say, we are willing to pay top rates to secure the best in the business, but also open to take on someone with lesser experience but loads of the right attitude.
The working day starts at 07:30 with a 40–45-hr work week being the average; any weekend work tends to be by exception to get an urgent job completed.
Overtime is available with time-and-a-half wages paid after 9½ hrs worked over the standard work week.
Company vehicle, cell phone, laptop computer and uniform are supplied.
Location: This position is based in Auckland; however we offer an on-site service to our clients which means you will attend work offsite at Auckland City Marina’s, Boat parks etc.
Applicants for this position should have the established right to live and work in New Zealand already in place.
Please submit your expression of interest to Rob Everall at Marinejobs.co.nz Ltd by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 021 996 796 for further information.

We will however need to see Trade Certification on your CV or, if not, a minimum of seven years relevant experience and evidence from referees that you are at the top of your game.
If you've been painting houses or cars or the odd boat for a mate in the back yard, sorry, but you are not for us.

Aluminium Boat Builder - Napier, Hawkes Bay (59512 / 13-002) • Experienced and skilled Alloy Boat Builder • Growing business - fantastic product • Small team – total involvement ‘end-to-end’ in the product
Consistent growth, strong sales and a recent increase in capacity, following a move to a new site, have created an opportunity for an experienced Alloy Boat Builder to join the team at Dickey Boats in the Hawkes Bay.
Hitherto, the main output has been very distinctive (and acclaimed) semi-custom aluminium alloy boats up to about 32’; new facilities have created scope for vessels up to twice that size, and this is where this business is heading. Fresh experience on larger builds coming into the team will therefore be very welcome as the company gears up to extend its reach.
This team has a distinctive ‘personality’ and approach to the way it does things, and they are searching for someone who will feel at home and who will have the skills and experience to perform from day one.
Therefore, at the top of the list of requirements are those qualities which will ensure you fit snugly into the operation: you’ll be someone who is highly self-motivated, energetic, extremely professional and who enjoys working in a small, quality-driven team.
You will have extensive experience in boat building and welding in alloy and/or steel, the ability to work effectively under pressure and to deadlines, along with a genuine commitment to continuous improvement.
A high level of expertise in aluminium MIG welding is considered absolutely critical, due to the nature of these particular boats, which are constructed to superlative levels of strength, accuracy and finish. Indeed, reviewers have likened the Dickey product to a seagoing Bentley, such is the focus on detail and the ability of the owner to tailor the design to reflect his or her subtle preferences.
You will also be able to fabricate from technical drawings and plans, and be comfortable to discuss these with the designers, if and when the need arises.
Of equal importance will be your ability to work autonomously with a focus on producing work of consistently high quality, commensurate with the brand.
All applicants selected for interview will be requested to carry out (at least) a trade test to show us what you can do with alloy.
If you would like to find out more about this position, please give Rob Everall a call on +64 (0) 21 996 796 or alternatively send your application details in the strictest confidence to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are open to consider applications from overseas in order to secure someone with the right level of skills and experience, but your background must be from the medium-to-large-sized alloy boat building sector to be considered credible.

If you have relevant skills and experience, we'd always like to hear from you, and we can put you in touch to assess what opportunities areavailable at that time.
The ads below (both roles now filled) are offered as illustrations of typical requirements in the hospitality sector, as we often field enquiries from people who lack the requisite qualifications and experience:
[ILLUSTRATIVE] 1. Stewardess required for 52m classic sailing yacht Currently completing a large refit this yacht will spend the summer either in New Zealand or Australia before heading further afield. With the exact itinerary still to be connfirmed, this yacht tends to go further afield to more remote locations, rather than the typical superyacht hubs. The right candidate will ideally have 'silver service' experience, be a non-Smoker, no drugs, no visible tattoos and must not get seasick! Someone with a genuine interest in sailing and bringing prior experience would be ideal.
2. Qualified Marine Engineer Three month assignment to a classic sailing vessel currently operating in Australia, open to a qualified Marine Engineer with MEOL (minimum). US$7k per month.
Both roles require STCW-95 and preference will be given to candidates who are currently in New Zealand or Australia and available for local interview.
