Ecotec is leading from the front in transitioning commercial heat users from using fossil fuels to heating with wood energy. Around New Zealand, we install and support a range of commercial wood chip boilers to a fast growing client list. To service this growth, we are looking to expand our team.

We are looking for a hands-on and versatile mechanical/HVAC operator to join our team. Full training will be provided and you will be working closely with an experienced boiler engineer to successfully deliver a busy boiler installation and service programme.

You will be:

  • servicing commercial wood chip boilers around Otago and Southland;
  • working closely with subcontractors in the mechanical installation of commercial and industrial wood boilers;
  • providing technical support and callout services for our customers;
  • troubleshooting, tuning and making minor repairs to wood chip and pellet boilers;
  • be an ambassador for our company values (integrity, respect, teamwork, safety first); and
  • having an important role in making sure we exceed our customers’ expectations day-in day-out.

It is essential that you have:

  • 5 years + of commercial-grade pipework/welding experience;
  • an interest in learning about modern wood boiler systems;
  • an ability to work independently, offering a mature outlook;
  • a willingness to do a wide range of tasks and jobs;
  • have a willingness to work on weekends and public holidays (doesn't happen a lot);
  • a customer-oriented attitude;
  • a commitment to keeping your colleagues and yourself safe in the workplace;
  • an ability to work closely and collaboratively with other team members;
  • New Zealand residency; and
  • a full NZ driver’s license.

It would be great, but not essential, if you have:

  • working knowledge of plant control systems;
  • a welding or electrical ticket.
  • 5 years + of commercial-grade pipework/welding experience;

A staff uniform, use of mobile phone and company vehicle will be provided. Please note that reference checks are an integral part of the application procedure. Only applications with a considered cover letter and recent references will be considered.
