    The company

    With over 1200 employees, Northpower is one of New Zealand's top electricity and fibre communications companies.

    Northpower's people are the key to their business, a factor which is recognised across the spectrum. Operating from a culture of mutual respect, trust and teamwork, Northpower invest heavily in both their staff and community.

    The role

    Training and developing the personal and technical skills of field and corporate staff is the key component of this role.

    With the opportunity to work from any Northpower base, you will be travelling across the North Island on a rotational roster to provide expert technical advice and support.

    Flexibility to work away on a regular basis is important as you can be based at any of the depots for up to one week at a time.
