We have a fantastic people culture at Fletcher Living and as an organisation we focus on the things that make it so great to work here, even as we continue to grow.  Our priority is to make all our people feel welcomed when they join and feel valued as they continue their journey with us. Your personal and career development is also so important to us, we run functional workshops, regional sales coaching, people leader workshops, and several professional development short courses.  Did I mention that we like to have fun at work?  There is always something going on at Fletcher Living, whether that is a sports event or family fun day, either on a regional level or a casual get together at branch level. We like to celebrate our successes and support each other.

We also have a number of employee benefits that are available to permanent full-time employees, as we are part of the Fletcher Building group of companies – these include access to the Fletcher Building Employee Educational Fund, FBuShare our global employee share plan, discounted Southern Cross healthcare, Fletcher Building Welfare Fund, and our lucrative Fletcher Building Staff Discount Card which will give significant discounts on some of the great Fletcher Building brands – Mico Plumbing, Placemakers, Snappy to name a few.

We have 4 branches.  Head Office in Penrose, 3 Auckland branches and a Christchurch office.  This role is based at our Auckland South Branch which is based on Cavendish Drive, Manukau and this branch focuses on developments in the surrounding areas, so ideal for anyone living out that way looking to reduce their commute.  

The Role
Our Associate Design & Planning Manager is office-based and reports to the Design & Planning Manager.  You will design, assess and review documentation as well as liaise with all parties involved in the design process. This role spans the construction life cycle, developing good working relationships with consultants and Council to ensure we respond to their queries efficiently.  You will need to assist in the production of suitable designs and working drawings ready to lodge applications for consent.  The design management part of the role will also see you working with our Construction Supervisors to gain their input on ‘buildability’.  Similarly, you’ll need to also work with our Sales Team and take on their feedback about what existing homeowners and people who view our show homes are saying to ensure that future designs take these points into consideration.

About You
We are open to who may be the successful candidate for this opportunity.  You may be an experienced Draughter / Architectural Technician, Architect or Builder with an interest in design or vast experience in the consenting process. You may have an exceptional eye for detail and love analysis and accuracy or you may enjoy the more creative / design side.  We are building a team for our growing branch so having a mix of skills and experience would be a real asset. You’ll definitely need to know your way around a set of construction drawings and you will have some exposure to and good knowledge of specification writing.
