About this job

Log Scalers, also known as Checkpoint Processors, are required at the Wellington Wharf. Our Wellington branch needs to keep building our team of log scalers. Log scaling is an NZQA accredited job where you will receive structured training and a recognised qualification. The Checkpoint is a facility where logging trucks come to have their logs measured and ticketed ready for export. The Log Scaler “scales” or measures each log to an international standard using scanning equipment, then barcodes the log and records it in our system so that every single log can be tracked wherever it is. The Checkpoint is a team environment where the safety of our staff is paramount. Shifts vary and can be up to 12 hours in length and are mostly Monday to Friday with occasional work on a Saturday. Once every 5 weeks you may be required to work night shifts. Ultimately, we are looking for staff who can be a bit flexible with the hours they work.
