Cable Jointer - Southern Region

  • Bring your technical expertise in cable jointing to Central Otago
  • A focus on safety, innovation, and taking you and your ideas seriously
  • Professional development opportunities

At Connetics, you'll get more of what matters. More satisfaction, a more active role in problem-solving and decision making, and more life in a day.

Picture a new life where you're All Ways Connected to development opportunities, a commitment to your safety, and an approach towards innovation where your input is respected and valued.

This isn't just any Cable Jointing role. Oh yes, you'll be doing everything you'd expect, and using your technical expertise to the full, but what sets this role apart is Connetics itself.

Based in Central Otago with the main office in Christchurch and another depot in Tawa, Wellington we're responsible for constructing and maintaining overhead and underground lines and equipment across these locations. Providing such a critical service is no easy task, and we know that to be the best, our people need to be connected, safe, and involved. That makes your satisfaction our top priority.

And there's a lot to be said for the lifestyle opportunities in Central Otago. How about a shorter commute? Lots of possibilities for outdoorsy weekend adventures? More time for your family? That's right - we know you have a life outside work, and we expect you to live it every day.

If you're a qualified cable jointer who can work with 400v to 33kV plastic cables, and can bring solid experience in distribution and supply, this could be an exciting change for you, with amazing professional opportunities. Look at Christchurch, for instance - a new city means a whole new network to build.

You'll bring strong written and oral English skills, an open mind, and confidence to bring new ideas to the table. You'll also be happy for some work-related travel - sometimes you'll have to go where you're needed to maintain and restore networks.

This isn't just about growing your career and living your best life. It's also about having more. More satisfaction, more opportunity, more innovation, more experiences - and more life in a day for the things and people that matter to you.

What will you do with it?

Our benefits:

  • Develop your career with us. We provide and pay for all the training and licences you need to do your job (first aid, traffic management, electrical safety, heavy traffic licences etc. Plus, we provide paid relevant tertiary education to further your career and enhance your life
  • Modern well maintained fleet of vehicles and plant, including latest tools and equipment
  • Competitive hourly rate and penal rates. There are opportunities to earn overtime at the rate of T1.5
  • Long service leave
  • PPE provided annually, includes Merino base layers
  • Allowances and paid travel time
  • Kiwisaver at 3% (This applies when you are eligible to receive in New Zealand)
  • Wellness initiatives - including flu vaccinations
  • Access to discounted medical insurance
  • Work life balance
  • Social club
