Our Team Leaders are key to the successful delivery of maintenance services to the Prison sites that we manage. We are currently seeking a Team Leader to join our great onsite team based at Otago Corrections Facility.

This is an opportunity for you to take charge of your career and produce positive results by making informed decisions and using your experience and resource management skills.

Prisons are sometimes challenging work environments, so you must be confident and able to conduct yourself professionally at all times. You will also understand the 24/7 nature of a prison site and be prepared to sometimes manage jobs and situations after hours.
