Skilled Stevedores


Are you looking to change the view from your office? How does 360 degree water views above a busy port anywhere in New Zealand sound? If you are prepared to travel, then come and work for C3 Ltd. 

C3 is a national provider of port logistics and forestry services, employing over 1200 staff in 13 locations across New Zealand.

As we continue to grow we need to build our national forestry team to support our NZ wide operations and require motivated, safety conscious staff who are experienced in the operation of cranes and heavy machinery. Our preference would be for operators who have experience loading log vessels in either diggers or cranes, however this is not essential as training is available for the right candidates. 

If successful you will be employed with a primary function operating heavy machinery, such as ship’s cranes as well as having the opportunity to perform other general duties. 

All work offered will be "out of port", so you will need to be prepared to travel to other ports around NZ, for which you will be provided with accommodation, transport and a meal allowance.  On offer is permanent work with guaranteed minimum hours per month. Hours of work can be irregular and may vary due to shipping requirements. For the right candidate a relocation package would be considered for those wishing to move to one of our other branches.

To be considered for these positions with C3 you will need to:

  • Have flexibility to work hours over a 24/7 working week
  • Be a strong team player
  • Act in accordance with Occupational Health and Safety requirements
  • Pass a pre-employment medical 
  • Pass pre-employment and random drug & alcohol testing
  • Be able to work at heights
  • Have a positive attitude
  • Be committed to a safe work environment
  • Have a Full Class 1 licence 

C3 offer competitive hourly rates and career progression opportunities. C3 supports the Government vaccination programme to help protect us all against Covid-19. Along with our pre-employment background checks, drug, alcohol and fitness for work checks, applicants will be expected to provide evidence of Covid-19 vaccination as part of our recruitment process. If you want to join us and be involved in this growth industry then we want to hear from you.
