In-house Training

At Golden Bay we offer a range of in-house training programmes and learning initiatives to take your skills to the next level.

Driver Training Programme

In this programme we take Class 2 licence drivers and upskill them to the Class 4 (heavy rigid vehicle) licence, or Class 5 (heavy combination vehicle licence). You get paid throughout the training process, with pay increases each time you qualify for a new licence Class.

We take you from a Class 2 licence to a Class 4, and then over a six-month period we give you the opportunity to build your experience until you can operate independently.

Diversity is our strength

We’ll never ask you to fit in. That’s because we want you to be you!

Regardless of your gender identity, age, race, sexual orientation, physical ability, or background, we will welcome you!

We are continuously building an inclusive culture, working hard to increase the opportunities for everyone but with a focus on women, Māori, and Pasifika.  We know some of the best ideas to do better come from our team so encourage our people to share their ideas in following people-led action groups.

The Equality Network Group works to improve gender equality and balance in roles across the business – including in leadership. Examples include providing women with professional development and networking opportunities within Golden Bay.

Tātai is our Māori network. It aims to bring together our Māori community to network, grow, and support each other to succeed.
