Truck Driver and Excavator Operator

The role does not involve shipping containers to and from Port Nelson but the occasional visit to the Port might be required. We do require a Class 5 license for the truck work. You will often be loading the bins of fruit so some forklift experience is desirable. You will be performing maintenance checks, ordering road miles and keeping the trucks operational.

Outside of the harvest season you will work as an excavator or machinery operator. This is a flexible role and we will tailor it to take advantage of your abilities, skills and experience. We’re happy to discuss changing this role in ways that might suit you better.
