About Us:
Mico Plumbing and Bathrooms is New Zealand’s leading specialist supplier of plumbing and bathroom products to trade, retail and commercial customers with a reputation for quality and customer satisfaction. With over 60 branches nationwide, we are the biggest name in plumbing and bathroom supplies.

We are part of the “New Zealand Distribution” Division of Fletcher Building which also covers another big brand in the form of PlaceMakers. As such this role will be part of a wider People and Performance Team supporting “NZD” nationally. This role will suit someone looking for a role offering autonomy, whilst still having the support of a good-sized team to call on in terms of support, expertise and specialisms in functions like Recruitment and L&D.

About the Role:
This role has come about due to a promotion of the incumbent into a bigger role within NZD. This will be good news for whomever steps into this space as you will have someone to support and assist you as you learn about us. 
Mico is a business of just over 500 FTE’s spread throughout a national branch network split into 4 regions. It is supported by two BPs, one based in Christchurch who looks after region 3 and 4, and this role which supports regions 1 and 2. You will be based in Penrose as part of the wider NZD team and within the Fletcher Building campus and your regions will cover the Upper North Island, down to Hastings. There will be some travel required, but you will mostly be Auckland based. 

This is an all-encompassing role where you will partner with key stakeholders to deliver best practice HR initiatives with a focus on employment relations, talent management, change management, engagement, capability and performance. You will be joining a business with a very mature view of HR as a function which can support and drive a business strategy so you will have an opportunity to front foot a range of initiatives rather than constantly being in a reactive environment. 

Mico is a close-knit business, and so not only will you be able to draw on the support of NZD HR team, you will also find you be encouraged to learn about and voice an opinion on where you can add value within the Mico growth strategy. This makes it an ideal role for someone looking for more exposure to strategic decision making which in turn will allow you to develop your skills beyond the day to day operational needs. 

About You:
Key to your success will be your ability to build trust and coach business leaders. You will be a thought leader and not afraid to challenge the status quo as you will be passionate about driving excellence across the business.  Motivated by delivering best practice, you will be efficient, personable and resilient in your style. 

Additional skills/experience desired:

  • Proven track record with a minimum of 4 years generalist HR experience
  • Tertiary qualification in HR, business or related discipline
  • Practical knowledge of NZ employment legislation and employment relations
  • Ability to manage strategic HR projects from inception to completion
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills
  • Systems savvy 

What’s on offer?
This is a great opportunity to be part of a commercially driven business with passionate, real people!  You’ll work alongside a supportive and knowledgeable HR team and you will have many opportunities to develop your own skills at business partnering level. 
In return, you will be joining a well-respected company offering a competitive salary package, fantastic culture, real opportunities for career advancement and a range of other benefits that come with being part of New Zealand’s largest listed company – Fletcher Building.
