The Opportunity

The Mechanic role has become open with the pending retirement of the Club’s current mechanic after a long tenure at the Club. It is envisaged that there will be a transition / learning period before the current mechanic leaves the Club and this will allow an exchange of knowledge and experience.

Expectations
There is an expectation of a minimum 40 hours per week and this is a salaried role with a remuneration offered that will be commensurate with the experience of the individual. Some weeks will require extra hours to get the job and requirements fulfilled and this should be expected.

The Mechanic will work Monday to Friday, usually starting from 7am with flexibility around the start time. You might need to start early (eg 5am) to assist the Green Staff with preparation of the Course for a larger event or in the case of other team members being absent.

There will also be an expectation that once per month the mechanic will start early on a Saturday morning to prepare the greens for the major members competition. This will be on a rotation basis with the shift lasting approximately 4 hours.
