JCL – Growing our Team


We believe our staff are the most important part of our business. We invest heavily in training our team, which has included working with local dealers, trips oversees to manufacturers, Dale Carnegie as well as continued support within the team. We are always on the look out for experienced, full time operators to join our team where we will get to understand your career aspirations and help you achieve your goals.

JCL also requires seasonal staff for the Grass and Maize Silage Season. Training and inductions start in September followed by grass silage and cultivations through the spring. The season finishes late April with Maize Silage harvesting and re-grassing work. JCL ensures that all seasonal staff have the opportunity to upskill and have a variety of equipment to operate, rather than being “stuck” on the same machine for the season.

The equipment we need operators for includes:

  • Buckraking/ Stacking- Volvo L90 & Fendt 824
  • Maize Planting & Drilling
  • Forage Harvesters- Claas 960
  • 4 & 2 Rotor Rakes
  • Round Combination baler
  • Loader/ Forage Wagons
  • Spreaders
  • Tractor and Trailer/ silage bin
  • Cultivation equipment- Discs, Rippers, Power Harrows and Drills
  • Sprayers
  • GPS Autosteer.

For the 2024/25 season we JCL be recruiting seasonal operators based on a passion for the industry, a willingness to learn, as well as being happy to work long hours and weekends. We are happy to invest resources into training and ongoing support for those that are keen.

In return you will be working in a fun and supportive environment where you can achieve your career goals.  We have a modern fully furnished house with ensuite bathrooms with each bedroom for overseas staff, which is a few minutes  from our base.

As part of our onboarding process, we will collect you from the airport, supply an NZ phone sim card, provide work t-shirts, tops, overalls and work boots and help you set-up bank accounts and tax numbers. We will also place you on a wheels endorsement course, which allows you to legally operate wheel loaders and drive tractors over 40kph on NZ roads.

A full car licence is a minimum requirement.
