Tena koe,

Miraka is an indigenous Māori dairy company based in the heart of New Zealand. We seek the sweetest pasture, the happiest cows, the best farming practices, and the right team to make some of the world’s highest quality milk.

We care for our natural environment and work to build strong resilient communities. Our vision of 'nurturing our world', reflects a global outlook and is founded on a strong set of values that will ensure sustained prosperity for present and future generations. Leading by example we strive to be world class in every aspect of our business processes. Our values of Excellence, Kaitiakitanga, Tikanga, Integrity and Innovation guide our business decisions and underpin the interconnected relationships we have with each other and with the natural world.

Our sustainable and renewable geothermal energy manufacturing processes is a unique point of difference for us. Miraka is one of just two dairy factories in the world powered by geothermal energy, using nature’s heat to dry and process our milk products. From the heart of New Zealand, we export our products around the world, producing Powder, UHT and Frozen Milk Concentrate with a low carbon footprint.

Our people are the heart of who we are, and we believe there is something special about working at Miraka. We are seeking a Reliability Engineer to join our Engineering team. Reporting to the Engineering Manager, your focus will be to identify the pro-active and strategic maintenance requirements for assets to increase plant productivity, prevent breakdowns and maximise reliability performance in a sustainable way and to capture all opportunities to improve processes while reducing total cost. You’ll be an integral part of the Engineering team and this role is based at our factory located at Mokai (25 minutes north-west of Taupo).

Ideally you will have the following attributes and experience:
• A relevant technical or engineering tertiary qualification (preferably Mechanical or Electrical).
• Experience and knowledge in an engineering or production role within a food manufacturing facility.
• Extensive knowledge of maintenance management systems and have understanding of site assets and process systems.
• Be highly proficient with computers and Microsoft programs.
• Confident in communicating with all levels and able to present information in a clear and accurate manner.
• Ability to organise, coordinate and accomplish multiple tasks.
• Demonstrated effective and systematic problem-solving skills.
• Excellent time management and organisational skills, with the ability to coordinate and accomplish multiple tasks.
• Demonstrated ability to build and maintain effective working relationships both internally and externally
• Fostering a culture that is consistent with the values of Miraka

We’re lucky to be based in the heart of New Zealand - Taupo (located in Mokai, 30 minutes northwest of Taupo). If you live here, you’ll already know how good we have it. With great schools and the largest freshwater lake in New Zealand, Taupo has all the amenities you need without the stress of big city living. If you love the outdoors some of the best biking, hiking, and water sports spots are right on your doorstep.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work permit and a Full Drivers Licence.

If this sounds like the lead into 2022 you are looking for and you want to be part of a team that strives for excellence and encourages you to bring your whole unique self to work each day, we would love to hear from you.
