About us: 

Sometimes we feel the need to pinch ourselves. Because that’s us, out there. On the Gulf. And getting paid for it. Fullers360 was born of a love for the Hauraki Gulf in 1981. And 35 years downwind, our network unifies the entire GulfThrough a reliable network and the passion of 350 crew and staff, Fullers360 ferries nearly 6 million people every year, getting commuters to work and visitors to play. We’re in an exciting phase of growing our tourism market, restless to elevate the experience we deliver to every single one of our customers. 


Our Purpose: Unifying the Hauraki Gulf by bringing together friends and whanau, supporting communities and businesses, opening up treasured destinations and sharing our local taonga.


About the role:
