Are you a doer? We are looking for doers!

We need someone who is energetic, someone who can work as part of a tight knit team to achieve the outcomes needed to met production goals in a constantly changing environment. Cruisers and phone addicts are not wanted, only the awesome need apply.

Flight Plastics manufactures high quality PET sheet produced from New Zealand's only rPET recycling plant.

We seek someone who is on the ball, a person for whom the term ‘solid work ethic’ is not a challenge, but rather, a way of life. We are looking for those people who can look around, read the room and know where they are needed next, someone who understands that quality and output are just as important as each other. If your CV doesn’t suggest awesomeness, then this is not the job for you.

We are looking for someone to join the team as a machine operator. This is a specialised industry and these are not your run of the mill machines. These are state of the art PET extruders and they need a person with the right blend of skills and training to get the best from them, and the other machines that we use. 

Are you that person?

Do you have a background that includes production, manufacturing and maybe some stores experience? 

Do you have skills that would transfer well into a production environment? 

Do you cope with challenges such as changing priorities, short notice job changes, and being expected to actually know what you are doing once you are trained? 

Plastics experience that would be valuable however the most essential skill is that you are a good fit with the team that is relying on you to carry your weight.

We offer a modern production facility with structured, measurable training that will see you well educated, and with a pathway to development and growth. We offer you the ability to prove yourself, to demonstrate that you are more than the sum of your previous roles, and that you are, in fact, as awesome as your CV suggests you are. We offer a well-managed environment where everyone is well supported, where the boss has your back, where you have the tools to get the job done, and where you won’t be left behind. 

Want more?

We offer a four-day working week from Monday to Thursday with pretty much every Friday off. We offer a workplace where every weekend is a long weekend. Don’t get me wrong, we work you hard, but we give you the time to rest and recover to return on Monday ready to be awesome all over again.

Remember, only the awesome need apply.
