JT Plumbing, Drainage & Gas are seeking a Registered Drainlayer for a Leading Hand / hands-on Supervisor position based in Tauranga.


You will be involved in drain laying for commercial, residential, and maintenance projects, and ideally, you will be able to switch your skills to general plumbing tasks as/when required.

Does this sound like the ideal job for you? If so, this is what JT Plumbing is offering:

  • No ‘On-Call’ in the weekends – you really get to live the Bay of Plenty lifestyle!
  • No more working on your Birthday – we even pay you to take a day off to celebrate!

  • Anniversary celebration payment of $1000 annually (a yearly bonus just for you!)

  • Market competitive pay rates (we pay what your skills and experience are worth!)

  • A relaxed, fun work environment with a great team and supportive management.
  • Opportunity to progress your career and training to help you succeed.
  • Kiwisaver on top of hourly rate (if opted in).

NZ Registration is essential and Class 2, 4, 5 Licenses and Excavator Operator experience would be an advantage, as would experience leading a team. However, we will consider up-skilling the right person who is looking for progression. The ideal start date for this role would be right now, however, we are flexible for a start in 2022 for the right person.

If you are a Registered Drainlayer / Plumber at the top of your game who wants to work with a supportive and progressive Tauranga-owned and operated company, then we would like to hear from you today.
