Machinist / Chargehand CWS


New Zealand Steel is the country's sole producer of flat rolled steel products for the building, construction, manufacturing and agricultural industries. We operate a fully integrated steel mill at Glenbrook, about 60 kilometres south of Auckland. Operating to the stringent ISO 9000 quality standards, New Zealand Steel is committed to being a world-class steelmaker.

About the role

We are currently looking for an experienced Machinist to join our Central Mechanical Workshop Team as a Chargehand. Reporting to the CWS Team Leader, your primary accountability is the machining of rolls, operation of lathes, precision measuring and leading the machining stream within Central Mechanical Workshops. This role has a tool-time/leadership spill of approximately 80/20.

About the person

To be successful in this role you will need to have a strong team focus while also being comfortable working on your own, excellent communication skills both oral and written, an uncompromising attitude to safety and be able to embrace change. Along with the capacity to plan, organise and delegate responsibilities to others, you will have a strong work ethic and produce high quality work. Other key skills and experience include:

  • a full Mechanical Trade Certificate (Advanced Trade would be preferable)

  • solid analytical skills with the ability to trouble-shoot with a problem-solving approach

  • a positive can-do attitude

While previous experience in a heavy manufacturing environment is a definite advantage, experience in a similar environment will also be considered. It would also be an advantage if you have a working knowledge of SAP along with experience in CNC machining, manual lathes and milling.

This is a day position; however, applicants should be aware that some overtime, shift work and call out work may be necessary.

Being part of the BlueScope brand makes us a strong and successful global company offering connections throughout the world, and providing access to resources and tools from the wider business. We believe our people are our strength, and embrace diversity and inclusion as we aim to have the right people in the right roles to move us into the future. If you enjoy working with people who are practical, put your safety first, and care about the communities in which they work, then New Zealand Steel is the place for you.
