Our purpose at Gallagher is ‘Protect what matters most’ and we live it every day. We use world leading tech to protect businesses, governments, and agricultural businesses in over 160 countries.

Although we’ve been in business for over 80 years, we’re experiencing more growth and opportunity than ever before. Our high-tech solutions are increasingly sought after worldwide – in the past year we have doubled our sales teams in the US and the UK, grown our manufacturing team by 50%, and invested in our support teams.

The Opportunity

To support our continuing growth, we’re looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Mechanical Engineer for our Production Engineering team, focused on designing, fabricating and maintaining the production mechanical processes.

Outstanding quality is a hallmark of Gallagher products, and we are always challenging ourselves to deliver the highest quality to delight our customers. Our Mechanical Engineers play a huge role in our success and the products we produce. We want people who are strong advocates for quality and the value we are producing, and who are constantly on the lookout for better ways of achieving these objectives.

  • Creative problem solvers prepared to leap into the unknown and open to new learning
  • Open to sharing knowledge freely, and who genuinely care about making things better
  • Passionate about helping the team deliver high quality products and awesome customer experiences

To be successful in this role you will have

  • A degree in Mechanical Engineering,
  • Relevant experience in a similar role,
  • 3D CAD skills,
  • Ability to effectively troubleshoot technical issues/faults,
  • Effective oral and written communication skills,
  • The ability to motivate self and word hard towards goals,
  • Be customer focused with good interpersonal communication,
  • Commitment to delivering high standards in product quality.

What we offer

  • A competitive salary and bonus package
  • A modern environment, free parking, subsidised on-site café and great eateries nearby
  • Access to our community giving programme, enabling you to do some volunteer work, ask Gallagher to make a donation to an organisation you’re involved in, or take part in a corporate challenge
  • Discounts at some of New Zealand’s favourite stores
  • Plenty of fun along the way – team building events, a companywide end-of-year Christmas function, inspiring guest speakers, and team lunches
