Our Mico Dunedin and Otago University stores are high performing, busy and successful branches, providing trade solutions to a loyal trade and retail customer base, including plumbers, drainlayer, gas fitters, home builders and the local business sector. Mico New Zealand is a leading supplier of plumbing and bathroom products to the trade, retail and commercial sectors, with 70 branches and around 550 employees throughout New Zealand.

About the role:
We have an exciting opportunity for you to be a dynamic part of this well-performing crew, overseeing the branch and leading the team to even greater success. This is a hands-on role that will see you working closely with you customers, your team and the community to build strong customer relationships and ensure that they are at the forefront of everything we do.

Reporting to the Regional Manager, the Branch Manager role has 14 staff across both branches and works closely alongside the regional sales team. You will lead the team through planning, motivating and coaching, to achieve and better the branch’s financial targets and maximising sales opportunities. Your relationship skills will prove invaluable as you collaborate with your team and your peers, as well as building and strengthening relationships with key customers and stakeholders.

This is a permanent, full time role working Monday to Friday and occasional Saturday mornings. Some additional travel will occasionally be required to attend supplier or sales events, but ours is a business which is mindful and respectful of the need for a work-life balance.

About you:
Success in this role is about leading successfully across a multi-site area, and whilst product and industry knowledge would be great, relationship and leadership skills are what we’re looking for, and prior experience in leading top performing teams is essential. Your general business acumen will be a great advantage in maximising the profitability of your branch, through maintaining budget alignment and actively seeking out opportunities to improve performance and reduce costs, as well as developing and implementing sales and marketing plans.

With a collaborative management style, you will know how to get the best out of people and will enjoy seeing others grow and succeed. You’ll model a strong customer service culture and build and foster positive relationships between the branch team and the sales team in the region, to ensure high level service delivery. Essentially, your can-do, customer-centric and solutions-focused attitude will pave the way to your success and the success of your team and branch.

What we can offer you:
In return, we’ll offer you a competitive salary package, Short Term Incentive quarterly bonus based on your KPI’s and sales achievements, full-use of a company vehicle, the opportunity to join our FBu Share Scheme, our Paid Education Fund and excellent opportunities for on-going training and development…not to mention a strong and supportive team environment. As Mico New Zealand is also part of Fletcher Building, there are great opportunities for on-going career development, plus ‘big company’ discounts, perks and benefits.

Please note, a full pre-employment medical, including a drug test, will be required and you must currently be legally entitled to live and work permanently in New Zealand.

We are proud of the incredible diversity of people who make up our business! As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we strive to create an inclusive environment for all our employees across our national network of branches throughout New Zealand.
