Auto Electrician/Electrical

Engineer, Ashburton Branch

You have done the hard yards getting yourself trained as an Auto Electrical Engineer and now you deserve to enjoy both your home and work life, so why not consider joining us in the agricultural and commercial hub here in Mid Canterbury? 



Join the family owned business that has remained steadfast and respected in Canterbury for 86 years. 

Enjoy working with a great crew, pay, truck, phone, plenty of perks and opportunities.

Get out of the grind and enjoy the opportunity to work with a large variety of vehicles, products and locations that take us to all corners of the country. One day you might be working at the top of Mount Hutt – the next servicing a farmer’s tractor on the Canterbury plains.



Ashburton is a town that is big enough to have all the amenities but small enough to have strong community spirit and involvement… you may even come to call it ‘home’ one day.

It’s a good place to raise a family with a large amount of community group activities and sporting clubs available to join.


Drive an hour north or south from Ashburton and you are in Timaru or Christchurch with all the city fanfare, or head inland for skiing, fishing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, hunting etc.



Staff are Newlands biggest asset, so getting a person with the ideal skillset and personality is critical.

Here is your opportunity to join our 32 strong Newlands squad. Send us your CV and cover letter and you might be living the dream in Ashvegas! 

The right candidate will get all the bells and whistles including assistance with relocation if required.

“I started with Newlands after moving from Germany two and half years ago. The range and variety of work is a real challenge and takes motivation and hard work but it also makes it rewarding. Normally starting in a firm takes a long settling time but at Newlands it was quick and familiar and quickly became like an extended family. Both at work and in the community, there has been help and a lending hand for me. I’ve found my weekends are really recharging up the hills or out fishing, a lot different to my life in Europe.” 

Lucas, Auto Electrical Engineer, Newlands Auto Electrical.

“There’s a large variety of work and plenty of getting out and about in the countryside. We have a positive team and all help each other out. Its great to live out of the big city while still getting a good wage and even starting out it’s much easier to afford a nice house here in Ashburton.”  

Jason, Auto Electrical Engineer, Newlands Auto Electrical.
