Lab technicians

Open up a world of opportunity and take the first step into your career in science.

At Fonterra, we believe there’s so much goodness in milk that it’s like a true super food, and our Lab Tech roles are pivotal to our ability to achieve that goal.

With an interest in science, a science degree (chemistry, microbiology, or food technology) or a diploma in food technology or applied science you’ll also bring strong computer skills, problem-solving ability and a commitment to quality.

We recruit into our Whareroa, Clandeboye and Waikato laboratories on a fixed-term or permanent basis. With regular shifts and plenty of time off in between, you'll be able to plan your life in advance and schedule plenty of time for yourself, your whanau, community and friends.

Passionate about a career in science? 

We can provide you with the development you need.

Working with modern equipment and a great team, you'll ensure we accurately record and document test results for a wide range of milk products, collect samples from our production line and enter the test results into our system to ensure world-class data collection and storage.
