  • Want to work with a great team and have fun while you are at it?

We are seeking applications from hardworking individuals to join our Stevedoring division in the loading and unloading of vessels.  We are a 24/7 operation with shifts commencing at any time of the day or night.

This role will have you trained up in the handling of logs, containers and cars. From time to time there is also maintenance work available, especially if you have any specialised skills.

As a casual the work is irregular, with no set shifts and is best suited to individuals seeking part-time or occasional work which can fit around their other responsibilities.  

What's in it for you

This is a busy hands-on, manual role so if you like physical activity and want a work out while you get paid this could be for you! The other great thing is that being a casual position, this gives you part-time or occasional work which can fit around the other important things in your life. 

And crucially, we take your health and safety very seriously. Which is something that should mean a lot to you.

Something About You

First and foremost, you will be someone who is fully focused on safe work practices and the care of cargo. Ideally you will have worked in a stevedoring or warehouse facility before.  However if not, full training will be provided. Other important stuff about you:

  • You have a high level of physical fitness;
  • You are pro-active and like being able to work unsupervised;
  • You are self-motivated and energetic - you love being busy;
  • You pay attention to detail and you hate making mistakes;
  • You like our ASPIRE values – Accountability, Safety, Passion, Integrity/honesty, Respect and Excellence.
