Keen girls and guys wanted for jobs and training at Southern Spars

A career at Southern Spars can take you anywhere in the world – just look at ‘Buddy’ Walker.

Buddy came to us for a career in the marine industry and was quick to put in the hours during the high-pressure build programme for the kiwi America’s Cup boat. So when Team New Zealand went to Bermuda they took Buddy with them, and naturally he was there when the kiwis brought the cup home, parading down Queen Street!

Contact us today for the jobs and skills training that puts you at the leading-edge of the exciting carbon fibre industry, we have vacancies right now for girls and guys who want to join a great team making world-class products.

We built the winning America’s Cup boat, but we do so much more than create amazing boats and masts, we’re also leaders in the aeronautics, sporting and automotive industries.

If you have a passion for sailing that’s great, but not essential, what’s more important to us is your commitment to delivering a great result.
