Alete Ltd

Our business is the distribution of the NZ Herald newspaper and magazines to subscribers in our allocated area of central Auckland. We employ staff to deliver to retail outlets and subscription-only letter boxes.

We are locally based, operating for the past 25 years.We very much believe in looking after our staff, many of whom have worked with us for over 10 years, and are themselves Seniors. 

We are looking for "morning" people. The job is not physically taxing but will keep you fit.  It best suits reliable, energetic,  people who enjoy morning work. The job is varied and good fun. You are your own boss, delivering to the same route daily.  The delivery areas are quiet and safe. 

Some of our staff use their morning delivery as a source of fitness - plus they are paid in the process. 

The job requires staff to use their own vehicle to deliver. Vehicle wear-and-tear is minimal because of low-speed driving and very little traffic. Staff receive a full fuel/vehicle maintenance allowance for fuel used on the job.The work is 2 hours per morning, 7 mornings per week, finishing by 6am.

We fully train our staff until they are confident and comfortable with their area. Staff are fully paid for all training. Training usually takes 3-4 mornings. Potential staff will be trained in our vehicles.  Because we know our runs backwards, we are the best people to do the training. We will teach you the best places to stop and other technical and safety tips, to help make your job quicker and safer. 

Once trained, staff are paid per paper, which equates to $21-22 per hour plus full fuel allowance.

We have  2 vacancies: 1 in Mt Wellington, the other in Remuera. Please note you must have a full NZ driver’s license or equivalent. The jobs suit either a single deliverer or couple.

Applicants must live in the Central/Eastern Suburbs of Auckland (Panmure, Glen Innes, Mt Wellington, Ellerslie, Meadowbank, Remuera, etc.).

We have a rigid Health and Safety policy, with emphasis on the well-being and health of our staff.  Staff are not expected to deliver to unsafe letterboxes. Staff are provided with NZ Herald reflector jackets.
