Wharfhands


We are looking for candidates with a good level of fitness to work in our logging operation.

As an essential service provider at the port, our Nelson branch is looking for casual and permanent Wharfhands to meet increasing labour demands. The work is manual and involves ensuring that bundles of logs are securely fastened before they can be lifted by crane onto log vessels. You will also scan and tally ticketed logs and communicate with other staff via radio.

Loading/unloading vessels is all about good team work and effective communication, so you must be able to demonstrate these skills. No prior experience is necessary as training will be provided, as long as you have a practical aptitude and are motivated and keen to learn.

A variety of shifts are available at any time of the day or night over a 24/7 period. Some weeks there may be no vessels to load while other weeks there could be a number of vessels, so the hours available vary from week to week. 

To be considered for this opportunity with C3 you will need to:

Have flexibility to work hours over a 24/7 working week

Be a strong team player

Have good levels of fitness, as you will be on your feet for long periods of time

Work safely in line with our processes

Have a positive attitude

Pass a pre-employment medical assessment as well as Drug & Alcohol test

We offer the opportunity to learn and develop a career. Future opportunities, for the right candidates could involve crane driving and hatchmen work.

Applications close 10 February 2023.
