We Go Places! How about you?
Location: Auckland

Type of Contract: Permanent


At DB/Heineken, you’ll be part of one of the largest beer and cider brewing companies in the world. With more than 250 brands in 70 countries, we’re behind many Kiwis’ favourite brews – probably even yours. So things just got very interesting for your career.


You are a tertiary qualified Mechanical Engineer with demonstrated interpersonal skills, which have provided you leadership opportunities throughout your career to date. You have experience working in FMCG, manufacturing or food production so you can hit the ground running here at DB.

You have provided learning and development opportunities to your team and peers in your current or previous roles, and are looking for your next opportunity to continue to provide coaching, support leadership and influence across teams. 


Reporting to the Maintenance Team Leader, you are responsible for developing effective maintenance strategies for our packaging machinery and implementation of new equipment. Ultimately ensuring that product is manufactured efficiently, cost effectively and to meet strict safety protocol and quality specifications.


You have experience with routine mechanical engineering and maintenance activities including planned shutdowns and project activities. You will provide input into the short and long term Engineering and Operations plans as well as provide transparency around reporting and cost control measures.


At DB we aspire to be the best place in NZ to work so we can offer you:

•           Health, life & income protection insurances;

•           Competitive remuneration;

•           Professional development and training including exceptional leadership development

•           Diverse projects and the ability to work with multi-disciplinary co-workers;

•           A supportive, high performing team environment;

•           Enjoyment of Life Leave

•           Monthly product allowance – yes free beer

•           Free parking!


Opportunities don’t get much better than this. You’ll join a fun environment, with enthusiastic people who care about a good drop. We value innovation and individuality – it’s a place where you can feel free to be yourself, and be confident to share your ideas about how we can be even better. And sustainability’s a key part of how we do business, because we know that a company of our size has both the influence and the responsibility to consider our impact.


At DB we are all about ‘Brewing a Better New Zealand’ and a big part of that means brewing better people with the heart of our company in our 3 values:


•           Respect for People and for the Planet

•           Passion for Quality

•           Enjoyment of Life
