Our Opportunity

Goodman Fielder is experiencing an exciting transformation and we want you to be part of it. We are moving the production of our Pies from Auckland to Palmerston North in April 2018, and a brand new team is needed.


We are now taking expressions of interest from motivated individuals for Operator and Baker roles.


In these positions you will be required to work across the baking manufacturing processes, operate equipment and complete quality assurance checks. Practical skills are important as this role is hands on and requires a certain amount of problem solving, as well as completing documentation in an accurate and timely manner.


This is a great foot-in-the door opportunity to be part of one of New Zealand's largest consumer goods businesses.


If you are looking for a change in life style and Palmerston North sounds like a good place for you, please apply with a covering letter detailing your current circumstances.


About You

  • A great attitude towards Health and Safety
  • Previous experience in Baking is a plus but not essential as training will be provided
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a Team
  • The ability to work in a physically demanding role (able to lift up to 25 Kgs)
  • Good numeracy and literacy skills
  • Excellent communication skills


With sites spanning across the Australasian region our employees have the opportunity to fashion their own home grown career across functions, locations and brands.  Our aim is to be a destination employer in the food industry where we don't just offer jobs - we offer careers.
