www.seek.co.nz lists a few vacancies, including one with Join Retko Haulage Ltd . Money on offer looks p-poor though.

Take care, don't pay of those "agencies" to find you a job.

You may have done this already - obviously but I think you will also need convert to NZ driving licence as they have to have special tests for the heavy goods driving, so this may be putting employers off. I know someone said you have to retake test or medicals periodically to stay valid and its not cheap.
