Refinery Operator


Reference: 3460691

Are you ready for a unique and rewarding career?

Come and join our team at Refining NZ. We have a number of Refinery Operator positions available. As a Refinery Operator you will be responsible for monitoring, maintaining, controlling, starting and stopping equipment relating to your assigned units on our plant. You will be responsible for taking corrective action when necessary to ensure that all unit conditions and operations are in compliance with Refining NZ's process and personal safety, environmental and operating policies and procedures. You will be the eyes and ears for our control room, monitoring the units to which you are assigned.

As the operation of our refinery is 24/7, the role is required to be on shift, working a 4-on, 4-off, 12 hour shift roster.

We are after energetic, self-motivated people who are strong team players and can also work autonomously. We are looking for people that have proven experience in using mechanical and/ or technical skills, as well as a sharp mind with proven ability to learn and retain the theory behind our processes. You will also need to have good computer skills. People who enjoy the challenge of problem solving and can demonstrate continuous learning through their career to date, will be well placed. Health and Safety is number one in an Oil Refinery so a proven health and safety focus in everything that you do is essential!

This is not a role for the faint hearted, you need to be resilient in both mind and body. This is a demanding career which requires you to perform minor pipe work, climb to great heights, work well in a team, have the technical smarts to run a high hazard processing unit and be comfortable to work long nights and hot busy days.

We will supply you with in-depth training which involves a mix of classroom and on the job training with experienced Operators and Trainers. If you love continuous learning and want a role that offers full training and progression through to working on the Panel in our Control Room and beyond, then this is the role for you.

Refining NZ is New Zealand's only Oil Refinery located at Marsden Point, 35km south of Whangarei.
