About us

LPC is the largest Port in the South Island of New Zealand, the gateway for the goods that keep our region moving. With a focus firmly on the future, these are exciting times for LPC with major infrastructure developments in full swing and a strategy focused on innovation, optimisation and business growth.

Working for LPC means you are joining a company with a people focus, and a passion to play a key role in the global transport network.

The role

An upcoming retirement in our Tug Team has created a unique opportunity for someone who holds a Master Foreign-Going ticket or a Skipper Restricted Limits certificate (SRL) with 500 tonne endorsement (or equivalent) to join the Marine team as a Tug Master.

It's also an exciting time to be in the Marine Team. We have great working conditions, a positive team culture, and a brand new tug in our fleet.

Preferred candidates will either have prior experience as a Tug Master or have advanced vessel handling skills. You will need to be able to demonstrate strong leadership skills and a willingness to lead all aspects of Tug operations.

For those applicants with a Master Foreign-Going ticket, in time we may provide support and training for you to complete certification as a Marine Pilot.

Key responsibilities include :

  • The ability to lead all aspects of Tug operations and to build engagement with the wider Tug and Marine teams.
  • Safe and efficient control and operation of tugs in the Port of Lyttelton.
  • Acting as a positive and proactive leadership role model within the Marine Team.
  • Fulfilling the agreed roster and job responsibilities, including coverage of the two LPC tugs.
  • Effective communication between tug crews and other key stakeholders at LPC.
  • Ensuring our tug operations remain compliant with relevant legislation and the requirements of the LPC Marine Transport Operator Plan.
  • Act as a role model and leader in Health & Safety, and contribute to continuous improvement of safety practices.
  • Involvement in projects and initiatives to further enhance the effectiveness of operations and culture within the Marine Team.
  • About you

    Working as an integral part of a small team you will need to be reliable, flexible and energetic. You will be an effective communicator who can demonstrate a positive and solutions oriented leadership style.

    If you are someone with the right qualification and experience, who stays calm under pressure, has a strong interest in marine operations, and is able to fulfil the job responsibilities of Tug Master, then we would be keen to hear from you.
