About us

Northpower is an electricity and fibre network provider for Whangarei and Kaipara, with more than 60,000 connected customers. We also provide contracting services to our partners – other network owners and operators across the North Island.

We have over 1,300 staff working together across 13 locations to keep the power on and the lights going for our customers. Northpower has an exciting opportunity for an experienced Arborist to join us in providing vegetation services around the power lines.

The role

  • Climb, trim and dismantle trees
  • Operate chainsaws, brush chippers and cherry pickers

No two days will be the same as you will experience a variety of working in a range of challenging environments which will extend your knowledge and capabilities. Some other benefits include:

  • Competitive remuneration, in-house wellbeing programme and discounted medical insurance
  • Overtime allowance and full PPE gear provided
  • Plenty of training and development opportunities and the opportunity to gain new skills within the industry

  • Working for a diverse range of customers means variety and job security

About you

  • A full clean NZ class 1 driver’s licence (Class 2 desirable)
  • Ability to cope with the physical demands of the job along with a strong commitment to health and safety
  • Great verbal and written communication skills
  • A great attitude and a willingness to be part of a team
  • Minimum Level 3 or above Arborist qualification with on the tools experience
