Maintenance Fitter

This full-time trade qualified fitter/machinist role will be based at our Dover Processing site, a 40-minute drive from Huonville – right where the Apple Isle got it’s name!

Dover is a quaint seaside town where you can spend days off fishing, bushwalking, camping at beaches 30 minutes away or experiencing the snow on Hartz Mountain in winter. For those that enjoy the city life, you will be at Kingston or in the CBD within an hour.

This role will suit a proactive, commercially minded and safety focused maintenance fitter who has experience with welding various materials.

Being part of the Tassal family also allows you access to discounted seafood, discounted private health cover and a low rate home loan to name a few perks of working with Tassal.
