W & R Jack Ltd have been supplying machinery and equipment to the woodworking and allied industries throughout New Zealand for over 70 years. As an independent, NZ-owned and operated business, Jacks represents the world’s leading manufacturers from Germany and Austria. We supply a range of machinery, tools and equipment to support the construction industry across joiners, shop fitters, kitchen manufacturers, builders and timber processing plants, as well as the home woodworker.

Range of products include:

  • CNC machines
  • Moulders
  • Planers
  • Crosscut saws
  • Finger jointers
  • Window production systems
  • Edgebanders
  • Ripsaws
  • Panel saws
  • Extractors
  • Portable tools
  • Software


We have a great opportunity for a keen junior technician looking to build a career in a growing industry. This is the perfect role to learn across all the machines, departments and people. Your main focus will be to look after the in-house servicing and repairs of both our second-hand machinery and rebuilds. You will be an integral part of our established, high performing service team based in East Tamaki, Auckland. Being sole charge, this requires a self-motivated and resourceful person who can take ownership of all work going in and out of the workshop.

Tasks include:

  • Rebuilds of gluepots, spindles and other components
  • Repairs of second-hand machinery and preparing for resale
  • General engineering and technical service work
  • Technical support for software demonstrations and training as needed
  • Assist the spare parts team with stock level management for rebuilt components
  • Contribute to costings and undertake quality assessments of component rebuilds


We are looking for two key things – the right attitude AND a mechanical/electrical skillset. Our ideal candidate will have:

  • A minimum of 2 years’ previous experience in a workshop or technical service environment
  • A background as a Service Technician/Engineer within the commercial or industrial equipment and machinery sector is preferable
  • Good skills in diagnostic work, fault finding and problem resolution
  • A strong mechanical and electrical aptitude with a real ‘can do’ attitude
  • Current EST license would be highly advantageous but not essential
  • Your own basic tools

Jacks offer genuine career progression opportunities and will support you to develop a rewarding career. Hours are standard 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
