Electrical Automation Engineer - Timaru

We Go Places! How about you?
Location: Timaru
Function: Supply Chain
Sub-Function: Supply Chain - Production
Type of Contract: Permanent


Ready to go places? Of course you are. And with us, you will.

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.


To be successful in your application you will be tertiary qualified, have experience with Allan Bradley /Rockwell or Schneider Modicon Automation Software products as well as be comfortable using the Wonderware factory suite. If you have experience learning on the job in a similar role we would also be eager to speak with you.  You will have outstanding time management and planning skills and be a natural influencer and communicator.


A key focus of the role is on the long-term focus on plant and process optimisation, and improving electrical reliability and plant availability of all Brewery equipment. This is achieved by providing technical automation expertise to the Brewery, to attack complex losses in line with high priorities linked to the Brewery vision.


In addition, you will play an active role in ensuring the development of a positive and constructive culture within the Engineering and wider Brewery team and will support the Engineering team in the critical day-to-day running of the Brewery manufacturing operations.

While ensuring Health, Safety and Quality are kept as a priority you support the Brewery team in continuous improvement (maintenance standards, BDA and Minor Stops reduction, ESP). You will mentor and train technicians in optimising asset performance and reducing costs in their areas.


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.

If that sounds good to you, there’s more. Career progression opportunities at DB/Heineken are limitless, so if you’ve got a thirst for adventure it’s the place to be. You’ll find opportunities to work across different brands, business units, roles, and even countries.

See what we mean when we say you could go places?
