Ngāi Tahu Tourism has an opportunity with our marine mechanic training programme and we're looking for people of all ages, from all walks of life, who descend from Ngāi Tahu and have a passion for mechanics.

If you are interested in a career in jet boat mechanics and engineering, then this apprenticeship could be for you… so if you're mechanically minded, read on!

This apprenticeship is an opportunity for someone enthusiastic and hard-working to achieve their marine mechanic qualification while working in our exciting businesses, starting at Queenstown's Shotover Jet.

Ngāi Tahu Tourism hosts over one million customers every year across 11 iconic businesses. Shotover Jet is an iconic Queenstown company, taking thrill-seekers on a breath-taking jet boat ride through narrow canyons with exhilarating 360° spins.

Manaakitanga (hospitality) is the core value that drives the way we do business; connecting with and taking care of manuhiri (visitors) goes to the heart of Māori culture and is the essence of what we do. Tourism allows Ngāi Tahu to host visitors, reconnect with the environment and to share our most precious treasures and stories.

If you are Ngāi Tahu, we want you!
