Packaging Technician - 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.


DB Draught Brewery in Timaru is a modern, efficient, award winning brewery with a reputation for continuous improvement, innovation and quality. We are looking for a talented individual who is keen to commence a career with us. Starting where the magic happens on our shop floor, you will join us as a Shift Packaging Technician and build your skills and knowledge over time. This may include the completion of a mechanical or electrical apprenticeship or natural promotion on the job as you improve your all round skills set and knowledge. Opportunities abound within the Supply Chain team whether that be here locally, at one of our 6 sites in New Zealand or maybe across the globe with Heineken.


Our Packaging Technicians work on a rotating shift roster as follows: 

  • Monday to Friday
  • 6am-2pm
  • 2pm-10pm
  • Weekly shift rotation; AM to PM
  • During peak periods some night shifts will be required 10pm-6am


You will bring your technical mind set, experience or qualification along with your hunger to carve a career within our Supply Chain team. Packaging Technicians are responsible for ensuring the packaging hall is running at its optimum level, through mechanical interventions and maintaining equipment and machinery through liaison with the maintenance and management teams.

Reporting to the Packaging Team Leader, you will operate assigned machinery within the packaging hall, gaining practical experience and actively participating in trials and projects to investigate any improvement opportunities, while maintaining safety and quality standards.


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?
