Log Scaler - Checkpoint Processor

Career opportunity

Are you starting out in your career and looking for an entry level opportunity to work on the port that provides potential for career progression? For the right candidate C3 can offer initial work as a Log Scaler/Measurer that could lead to more skilled work in the future, such as; driving heavy log loading machinery, learning how the log yard works as well as vessel planning. 

About the initial Job

Log scaling is an NZQA accredited job, where a structured training programme can gain you a recognised qualification. You don’t have to of worked in this type of role before either as training is provided. 

The Checkpoint where the Log Scalers work is located at the port and is a facility where logging trucks come to have their logs measured and ticketed ready for export. The Log Scaler manually “scales” or measures each log using an international standard, then barcodes the log and scans it into our system so that every single log can be tracked wherever it is.

The Checkpoint is a team environment where the safety of our staff is paramount. The Checkpoint normally operates between the hours of 0500am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday, with the occasional Saturday shift required. Shifts can be up to 12 hours in length and you need to be flexible with working hours as shift times can vary. On offer are casual positions. 

About you

You will be the kind of person who likes to be accurate when taking measurements, with good attention to detail. You will also enjoy communicating with truck drivers and members of your team. This is an active outdoor role that requires you to meet deadlines and also be ok on your feet for most of your shift.  You will also be confident operating scanning equipment and preferably hold a full class 1 licence. A keen willingness to learn, follow instructions and the motivation to do a good job to advance yourself are key qualities that we require to advance yourself in this role.
