Cable Jointer


  • Bring your technical expertise in cable jointing to Christchurch
  • 400v (live) – 11KV PILCA and 400V (live) – 33KV XLPE cable jointing
  • Professional development opportunities, manufacturer endorsements

With our main office based in Christchurch and with depots in Central Otago and Wellington, we’re responsible for constructing and maintaining overhead and underground lines and equipment across these locations. Providing such a critical service is no easy task, and we know that to be the best, our people need to be connected, safe, and involved.

If you’re a qualified cable jointer who can work with 400v (live) to 33kV plastic cables & 400V (live) to 11KV paper cables, and can bring solid experience in distribution and supply, this could be an exciting change for you.

You’ll bring strong written and oral English skills, an open mind, and confidence to bring new ideas to the table. You’ll also be happy for some work-related travel – sometimes you’ll have to go where you’re needed to maintain and restore networks.

Our Benefits

  • Modern well-maintained fleet of vehicles & plant, including latest tools & equipment
  • Competitive rates & opportunities to earn overtime at the rate of T1.5 and T2
  • 5 weeks paid leave after 5 years’ service + one off long service leave bonus
  • Wellness initiatives – including flu vaccinations & mole map
  • Relocation costs will be considered if relocating to Christchurch
