The Opportunity

Veolia is now seeking an experienced Power Plant Mechanic to join our team based in Tarago. Reporting to the Power Station Operations Manager, you will be responsible for carrying out the operation and maintenance of all the equipment of the Woodlawn Bio Energy  to ensure the completion of work safely and efficiently, in accordance with all safety and environmental standards, regulatory requirements, customer expectations and performance targets.

You’ll need:

  • ‘Team’ works here - it’s who we are 
    Reporting to the Production Manager, you’ll work closely with a small team, as well as various suppliers and contractors. And you’ll learn from them, as much as they learn from you.
