ARE YOU A NIGHT OWL ……

Wednesday, November 11th, 2020

Want to work nights and be well compensated? Shift work pays that little bit extra and works if you are an early bird or a night owl! We have clients offering well paid short and longer term roles.

We are currently seeking hard working, fit individuals who enjoy working night shift and are available for a range of long term temporary/permanent assignments with an immediate start.

The work will be in a range of industries such as:

  • General Labouring
  • Port work

In order to succeed in many of our assignments, you will have strong communication skills, and you will be physically fit and able to complete manual handling and heavy lifting duties. If you have your Forklift licence or at least have experience then all the better!

  • Have a commitment to Health & Safety in the workplace
  • Be physically fit and happy to do middle level labouring

As some of these roles are on the city fringe, and if you do not have your own transport you must be able to reliably get to your assignments on time every day.

Personnel Placements specialise in temporary and permanent placements in a range of industries within the South Canterbury region, but more than that, we look to place the right candidates with the right client to increase your chances of long term work.

To register your interest, please send your details through to: hannah@personnelplacements.co.nz stating your availability and the type of work you are looking for.

Applicants for this position must have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
