Auckland City, New Zealand

Full time


If you're handy with a power tool, or a an expereinced painter and you've got a practical approach to solving property maintenance problems, and enjoy being outdoors, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you!

We are Grand Millennium Auckland. Together with Copthorne and Kingsgate Hotels, we are one of New Zealand's largest hotel operators and part of an expanding international network of hotels. We are known for our outstanding service experiences and a fantastic team. We are set to bounce back as travellers get on the move again, so need a competent Maintenance Technician to make sure everything is working as it should and presented beautifully. That's where you come in.

Welcome to Grand Millennium, here's what you can expect when you join our team:

  • Discounted hotel rates nationwide
  • Meals on duty
  • Access to discounted health insurance
  • Career development planning and opportunities

You will need to demonstrate you can handle general maintenance of hotel rooms, public areas and gardens, including painting, plastering, gibb stopping and joinery to a good standard. It's preferable you have a mechanical or electrical trade and have worked in a role where you've been responsible for overseeing property grounds and performing preventative maintenance in the past. You must be flexible for shifts that include weekends and public holidays if required and love interacting with customers as much as you enjoy the physical aspect of work.

In this role you will attend to work orders, perform daily inspections and maintenance checks to prevent breakdowns and respond quickly to guest requests as they arise. It goes without saying that you have a good knowledge of garden care products, tools and techniques.

We're determined to get NZ's best hospitality employees back on work and develop the hospitality stars of the future. We will look after you with regular shifts, a friendly team and the change to be part of one of NZ's leading hotel brands.

If you're ready to get back to work in a relaxed and sophisticated environment, apply now.
