Job Description

A role has become available at Minaret Station for the position of Machinery & Barge Operator. We are seeking someone who is keen, enthusiastic, and willing to step up to the challenges that living and working at Minaret has to offer.

 Minaret Station is a high-country farm located on the western side of Lake Wanaka. The successful applicant will be responsible for the operation and general maintenance of modern machinery and equipment encompassing most agricultural tasks as well as excavation. Only those applicants with high standards towards the basics of machinery operation and maintenance need apply.

The property is remote without road access. The successful applicant will transition to be responsible for operating the station’s 15m pusher boat attached to a 50m flat top barge. Marine qualifications and/or experience would be useful, but not essential as training will be provided for those applicants with the right aptitude.
