Background experience must incorporate high- and medium-speed marine diesel engines in the leisure/pleasure 'white' boat sector, or alternatively specialisation in outboard work on any of the leading global brands in a marine workshop environment.
Engineers with a mixed background including large/super yachts will certainly be considered, but if you have only ever worked on big ships in the merchant marine (i.e. slow- and medium- speed diesels) then this experience is not usually considered suitable.
OEM training on the latest computerised diagnostic tools is of particular interest.
Additionally, if you can bring some electrical systems competence to bear, whether electrically registered or not, that is a definite bonus, as the work teams tend to be small and to rely on a broad range of skills.
You must be well presented and confident to liaise with clients face-to-face when working on their vessels, with a high standard of spoken English, and be a clean and tidy professional who will treat vessels with appropriate respect to their fastidious owners.
You will also need a great eye for detail, especially when chasing down challenging faults (because you will be often be working on your own) and be diligent in maintaining comprehensive and accurate work records.
In return, excellent rates of pay are available.
In order to be considered a viable applicant, you must have NZ Residency or a current work Visa (or already be well-advanced in the process of securing same) because of the time constraints to get up and running in the new roles.
