The Company

100% NZ owned and operated, Ovlov Marine Ltd is the largest Volvo Penta Dealer in NZ and the authorised Auckland City Dealer for Yamaha Outboards.  The company offers marine engine sales, parts and accessories sales, plus workshop and  mobile engine servicing.   It operates 11 mobile vans in total, based at its two locations at Westhaven (Head Office) and Pine Harbour.

Ovlov is also the Auckland City Distributor for Hydraulink Hoses and Fittings, and holds the mobile fittings sales and service franchise for Auckland City and the Eastern Suburbs.

We are looking for an experienced Mechanical Fitter / Hydraulic Sales & Service Technician to take on this role as soon as possible.

The Challenge

This is anything but a routine workshop-based job; you'll be out on the road in a mobile workshop with heaps of autonomy.  You’ll work for Ovlov but you will be effectively running and responsible for your own operation.

You get loads of variety, too – all sorts of customers, all sorts of challenges, all sorts of locations.    One minute you could be hands on trouble shooting a hydraulic system problem in the forest on a logging machine, the next you could be on a luxury launch or hunting out new business opportunities in the region.   

No two days are the same.   No time to get bored!
