Help us build New Zealand! PlaceMakers is New Zealand's leading and largest supplier of building materials to New Zealand’s commercial and residential construction markets. Part of New Zealand’s largest listed company, Fletcher Building, we employ more than 2,100 people in over 60 locations across the country and stock more than 100,000 product lines from concrete to paint and plasterboard.

PlaceMakers Waiheke continuously strives to be the best building partner in the market and takes pride in providing the highest level of service to our customers. In line with this, we are currently seeking a sales administration superstar to join our Trade Support team. Ideally, you will come from a trade or sales support background and will have an understanding of our products and be fueled with passion for the building industry.

Working Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm with a requirement to work one rostered Saturday/Sunday every 3 weeks, you will work alongside Account Managers to ensure that our trade clients experience the best customer service from start to finish. You will handle customer enquiries by phone and email, providing customers with product advice, quotes and pricing information as well as tailored solutions. The time-sensitive nature of our customer needs requires you to accurately input data and process incoming sales orders efficiently within specified time-frames. Your resilience and ability to be solution-oriented even when under pressure will certainly come in handy in this ever-changing environment.

As your role will also see you liaising with other areas of the branch including inventory and despatch to follow up on customer orders and deliveries, you must have the ability to build rapport and enjoy a team-focused culture. You will also be dealing with suppliers to enquire about existing and new product ranges/specifications on behalf of your customers. You will be an engaging and flexible individual, able to effectively communicate product and delivery information, and will have a strong customer service focus with an aim to continuously add value to the customers. You must be computer literate with the confidence to pick up our systems. 

This role will be challenging but an equally fantastic foot-in-the-door opportunity to secure a sales position working for the second largest PlaceMakers branch in the country. This is an exciting time to join our journey as we grow our people and business. You will be joining one of New Zealand’s leading brands offering a competitive salary package, genuine opportunities for career development, and a range of benefits that come with being part of PlaceMakers and the wider Fletcher Building group.

So if you have a strong sales administration background, have excellent people skills, a great team attitude and a willingness to exceed all expectations, then we want to hear from you!
