If you have a Master Class 4 (for CityCat Maser) or Master class 5 (for Ferry Master), a marine engine driver 3 and first aid and CPR certification then a ferry driver could be your calling!

Train Driver

As a Trainee Train Driver in one of our rail operations in Auckland and Wellington, you’ll be provided with comprehensive training, a very competitive pay rate which rises as you become qualified as well as many other great benefits. Our train drivers work in a fast paced environment where time management and the ability to remain focused is critical to ensuring the timely running of services. As a driver you will prioritise safety of the passengers in everything you do. 

Light Rail Driver

How would you like your office views to be one of the most famous cities in the world? As a Light Rail Driver in Sydney, you will be responsible for providing services in and around the CBD, south east and western suburbs.
