Join the Team at TRT!

Challenge, variety, fun and a passion for the industry - at TRT we offer more than a job!

There’s always something new happening at TRT: A new concept for defence our design team is working on, a new type of heavy transport trailer (the type of innovation we’re renowned for). It might be a new feature developed for TRT's TIDD Crane or a new 150t crane leaving the yard and destined for a new construction site in Auckland. It could be a new product being developed for international markets or another social club activity happening on the weekend.

At TRT, we’re a family business. Like a family, we work together, support each other, strive to be the very best, but always have fun along the way. Our team values are important to all of us.


 We understand that everyone needs to enjoy their work.


We all take pride in having created a successful and dynamic business, based on family values, that has grown in size and capability for over 50 years. We are no longer that small business, but there are some things that don't change.

  • Work-life balance is important and so is family, so we take a flexible approach to employment.
  • Job satisfaction is essential. We ensure our team is challenged and fulfilled in their roles.
  • Professional development is integral to our business, we encourage training and the opportunities to upskill.

We're here to stay and that's what we look for in our new team members. If you’re looking for a career with meaning, where you can be challenged, enjoy variety and work in a supportive environment alongside others who share your passion, then TRT is the place for you.
