Careers at MyHome

Progress your career - qualified carpenters needed!

We are a market-leading building company specialising in residential renovations in Auckland.  We offer steady, consistent work, well organised and managed jobs and a positive, supportive team environment and culture.

With an unprecedented number of projects in our pipeline, we are looking for qualified carpenters to join our professional team in a long-term capacity.

The key responsibilities of the role are;

  • To perform assigned carpentry tasks to a high standard.
  • To assist the Lead Carpenter with the supervision of other team members and any subcontractors on site for quality control and H&S purposes.
  • To understand and follow the Health & Safety policies and procedures to ensure a clean H&S record.
  • To submit timely and accurate timesheets and any other information required from time to time.

For the right candidate MyHome Renovations offers the following benefits;

  • A steady stream of work – typical hours are Monday to Friday (7am to 4.30pm).
  • Challenging and varied renovation projects in the central Auckland suburbs – our current projects are in Onehunga and One Tree Hill, with future projects in Parnell, Mt Albert and Mission Bay.
  • A great hourly rate which is paid weekly (without fail) – either in waged employment or as a labour-only contractor. You choose.
  • Potential bonus payments on each job up for grabs!
  • An awesome, supportive group of guys to spend your day working alongside.
  • Well managed and scoped projects – we have both Project and Construction Managers in the team to support our builders and to ensure things run smoothly.
  • Regular team meetings, uniforms and social activities.
  • Professional development and great opportunities to advance your building career. No renovation project is the same so the challenges are varied!

Requirements for the role;

  • A qualification in carpentry
  • 5+ years building experience (incl. apprenticeship) with recent work history in residential building and specifically some experience in renovations.
  • Reliable transport with a full driver’s licence.
  • A full set of well-maintained tools.

In addition, the right candidate needs to have the following qualities;

  • Be hard working and self-motivated with a good positive attitude.
  • Be a good, clear and effective communicator.
  • Be honest, friendly and approachable – we want our customers to be comfortable having you in their homes.
  • Be tech savvy – we use online project management software and other apps so you need to be confident using technology.
  • Be someone who takes pride in and ownership of the quality of their finished product – ‘good enough’ is not good enough for us.
  • Be able to work unsupervised and provide direction to others when needed.
  • Be prepared to make a long-term commitment to us - if you are just looking for fill-in work or waiting for the next ‘opportunity’ to come along, then please don’t waste our time.
