Class 5 Drivers - Bulk & Agri Transport Christchurch

If you are an experienced and reliable class 5 driver, with bulk transport experience or similar and flexibility with shifts and hours, apply online to join our Christchurch bulk & Agri transport team today.

We are currently searching for an experienced Class 5 driver to join our bulk transport team, based between Rolleston and Hornby, with the odd run from Timaru.  Work involves transportation of a range of bulk products – including coal, stockfood, fertiliser, agricultural produce and grain to name a few.

The ideal candidate will be confident in a wide range of bulk tipper deliveries, however we will also consider applicants who have at least three years of varying Class 5 experience in general freight, stock or liquid cartage. Experience with a road-ranger gear box and jack-knifing of truck and trailers will see you succeed in this role. Above all a great attitude and motivation to get stuck in and learn on the job is essential.

Specific Information:

  • Hours of work will vary on a week by week basis, with a minimum guarantee of 80 hours per fortnight.
  • Weekend and nightshift work is required, therefore flexibility is essential.
  • Primarily based from Rolleston, with work from Hornby during the peak harvest season, with the potential to have nights away on line haul runs.

Due to the nature of the bulk transport division, this role is varied in both deliveries and hours. This means you could be working Monday through Friday one week on dayshift from 5am, while the next week may see you working nightshift to assist with varying jobs.

There may also be work from Timaru on occasion, seeing you based away from home for a few nights a week. Weekend work is also required on a regular basis, depending on operational, seasonal and customer requirements. Therefore reliability and flexibility with working hours will see you succeed in this role. 

Hilton Haulage can offer you modern, well maintained fleet, full uniform, competitive terms and conditions (including medical insurance) and an awesome team to work with.
