Airport Service Worker Position

The Westport Airport Authority wants to employ an Airport Service Worker who is a practically minded, a hard-working person with a good attitude and plenty of initiative.

The successful candidate will be a flexible team player with a keen interest in aviation.

A key component of the role is providing ground services which help ensure the vital air link for the community. You will need to be able to demonstrate a record of outstanding consistent customer service and a personable friendly nature.

Practical handy skills will be viewed favourably. From putting up signage to changing runway light bulbs to daily cleaning, chemical spraying, grass mowing and green work – an Airport Service Worker does it all. You will need to be physically fit to keep up and if you have a mechanical or electrical background that would be a distinct advantage.

You will need to be a competent user of technology including computer software and email. You will be handling money so you will need to be an honest individual experienced with cash handling equipment.

We use airport vehicles, including a utility vehicle and quad bike so you need to be a sound driver with a current licence and experience with all-terrain vehicles.

The permanent part-time role is sole charge and varied. Hours of work are flexible with up to approximately 43 hours over a fortnightly period, however less hours (minimum 33 hours) may also be accommodated if it suits the right candidate (exact roster schedule will be worked out with the successful candidate).

We expect a lot from our service workers but we are a friendly tight knit team and looking forward to having another like-minded person join us in our mission to serve the flying public and provide the best small airport service, facilities and experience in the country!

Enquiries are welcome by contacting Linda Pablecheque on 037889642 or linda@bdc.govt.nz.  A cover letter and a copy of your current CV, along with the completed application form is required.
