Job Description:

RedBull Powder Company manufactures a range of explosives products and provides comprehensive drilling and blasting services to quarries, mines and construction projects, both in New Zealand and abroad.

RedBull is recruiting a Shot Firer to co-ordinate drilling and blasting activities for existing and new customers. We have roles available in the Northland, Auckland and Waikato/BOP regions. Due to the vast area being covered there is a requirement for overnight trips away as workload dictates.

Key responsibilities will include but are not limited to;
  • Shot design, loading and firing
  • Handling, transportation and use of explosives in compliance with company operating procedures, all applicable laws and regulations and all customer site procedures
  • Achieving customer satisfaction by delivering exceptional results
  • Assist the company and your team to achieve zero harm by actively identifying and managing all hazards to ensure a safe and efficient work environment
  • Ensure production goals are achieved by working collaboratively with the drilling, MPU, and blasting teams and customer site management

Key factors to your success include;
  • NZ Certified Handlers Certificate / Controlled Substances Licence
  • Three years Shot Firing experience in quarries
  • Ability to work unsupervised and to motivate a working team
  • Develop solid working relationships with all stakeholders
  • Clean and current Drivers Licence, ideally with a Dangerous Goods Endorsement
  • Excellent reporting and communication skills, both written and verbal

Reporting to the Regional Manager, you will be confident in delivering the highest quality work and service level to all customers. You must be able to work effectively alone and within small teams, contributing positively to RedBull’s strong values and culture. The positions cover the Northland, Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions therefore travel and overnight stays will be required so flexibility is essential.

This Shot Firers role offers a competitive salary but will be commensurate with experience. If you are looking for a strong career opportunity, have the right credentials and industry experience, come and join our dynamic team to be part of this exciting business.
