Mr Apple acknowledges that Hawke’s Bay has had a tough month and our hearts go out to everyone impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle. We are pleased that our people are safe, and we are fortunate that we still have apples to harvest. Our teams are committed to getting business back to normal operation which means we can offer secure contracts for the rest of the season.  

Whether you’re looking for work packing, stacking or forklift driving, or you just want to work alongside a great bunch of people for the season, we have a role for you.

What you’ll be doing 

With Packhouses across Hawke’s Bay, we have both day and night shift casual roles available at our Whakatu, Longlands and Waipawa sites. With Mr Apple you will learn new skills in a supportive environment that embraces diversity. If you are keen to grow your career, we provide an opportunity to upskill and progress into different roles.

There are many different jobs within the packhouse depending on your experience, skills and interest. You may start as a packer, stacker, turner, or someone who checks the quality of the fruit. There are also several supervisory and leadership positions, as well as skilled roles such as forklift driving if you have the experience.

What you’ll bring 

  • A keen-to-grow attitude
  • An open mind to diversity
  • Strong work ethic 
  • Fresh ideas
  • Reliable transport to and from work
  • Availability to work Sundays occasionally

What we offer 

Experienced or not, when you work with us, you will earn good money, have fun and work with a team of legends.

  • An environment where we embrace unique ideas
  • A supportive team who are passionate about what they do
  • Unrivalled health and safety standards
  • Competitive hourly rates

If you want to be part of helping us deliver one in every four New Zealand apples to the world, get yourself set for 2023 and apply now!
