About the Job

Plant Operators drive heavy machinery on the wharf for the loading and unloading of logs off trucks arriving at the port. The Operators ensure that the logs are safely moved and stacked neatly and accurately in rows in the yard, so that they can be brought to the ship’s side when they are required to be loaded onto log vessels.

This role will operate a variety of heavy machinery including High Stackers and Pivot Steers with log grapples, as well as Chip dozers, to manage the log chip pile. As the role involves operating large machinery in a confined space on the wharf accuracy, attention to detail and a strong focus on Health & Safety are a priority. 

This position requires flexibility regarding working hours as there are a range of shifts across a 24/7 work environment influenced by shipping schedules.

Training opportunities are available for the right candidates if you haven’t operated this kind of machinery before, but are motivated to learn new skills and develop a career.  You will be reliable, flexible and committed with the ability to work to deadlines and perform well in a team environment.
