AB Lime is a diverse business that has been in operation for over 100 years. It is a company that prides itself on meeting the needs of farmers, providing high quality lime and fertiliser blends to the region. The business is comprised of Southland’s largest limestone quarry, a regional landfill, and a 950 cow dairy farm. 

An excellent opportunity currently exists to join this innovative company working alongside fellow operators as part of the Winton-based team. Reporting to the Fertiliser Blending Plant Manager you will be responsible for the blending of fertilisers and lime, and the blending of seeds with fertilisers and lime. 

You will also be responsible for operating heavy machinery, routine maintenance in and around the plant, and assisting with other general activities. 

AB Lime is seeking candidates who are enthusiastic and motivated, with a willingness to learn and an appreciation of the business and where it’s heading. You need to work well in a team environment, learn quickly and perform tasks associated with blending plant operations, find solutions, and communicate effectively. An aptitude for machinery maintenance and experience with operating a forklift is preferred, but full training will be given to the right candidate. 

The successful applicant will be committed to meeting health and safety standards, be committed to providing quality work and be prepared to work night shifts.
