Relationships build success and we are looking for our next relationship builder to join our plant managing team, as a Plant Field Manager. Overseeing the part of the lower Waikato region, you can be based from our location in Taupo or Taumarunui or any other branches we have across the Waikato. 

You’ll be ensuring all plant assets are kept maintained and compliant but will also be responsible for the effective management of local and company assets (plant, trucks and equipment), optimising plant use and achieving target results.  With a big customer focus, you’ll ensure all relationships, both external and internal are looked after and enhanced by offering continual feedback, maximising availability, and return on investment.

  • Evaluation of repair options, managing job scopes and extracting maximum value from our external supply network – ensuring effective cost management
  • Extensive travel through-out the Waikato Region from Coromandel to Turangi and everywhere in between

About you
As an experienced relationship builder, you’ll bring your adaptable and flexible communication and negation skills with customers and major suppliers.  You’ll couple this with experience in managing assets which could include plant and equipment. You’ll also have proven planning and organisational skills and have a clear understanding of leadership behaviours that empower others. Let’s not forget you’ll be confident and efficient with using computers and windows systems.

A role with us can enable you to develop and enhance your skills and experience.  This is a great opportunity for you to join our diverse and inclusive culture and be part of a great team thriving in a collaborative fast-paced environment.  We will reward you with a competitive remuneration package, flexible working arrangements, great training and ongoing development, and the opportunity to advance your career within our organisation.
