Fletcher Living has a long history and a strong commitment to providing quality new homes for New Zealanders. As one of New Zealand’s leading residential developers and builders, the Fletcher Residential and Land Development Division has been an integral part of the Fletcher Building family for over 110 years. Our reputation hasn’t grown overnight, James Fletcher built his first weatherboard home in Dunedin in 1909 and the home still stands proud today, an ever-present statement of our craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Why Join Us?
It’s an exciting time to be part of the booming residential construction sector. We’re a high performing business and are proud to say that we have a highly engaged and successful team. We have a fantastic people culture and encourage everyone to bring their full and genuine selves to work. Our workplaces are enriched by many different nationalities, languages, religions, customs and lifestyles. We’re proud of this diversity and understand that it brings a richer and broader perspective to how we operate by helping us connect better with our people and with our customer base.
The role is based at our Auckland Central Branch which oversees a variety of communities we’re developing in the city and surrounding areas. The position focuses on Measuring/Estimating, Commercial Evaluations, Purchase Order Processing and Cost Reporting. As a builder of spec homes, our construction team delivers a finished product which is then handed to our sales team. This means no budget reporting to clients or negotiations and management of variations. The majority of this role is office-based, but we do encourage our QS team to go to their site as often as possible to help build valued relationships with the contractor teams.
We’re looking for a qualified QS/Estimator with residential or light commercial experience, strong communication and sharp negotiation skills, the ability to read and understand technical drawings and excellent computer skills. We’re also after someone who has a positive can-do attitude, an eye for opportunities, and is willing to contribute ideas to improve our processes and add value to the homes we deliver.
Our Auckland Central Branch Office is based in St Johns, accessible from all main arterial roads and has plenty of off-street secured parking, so if you live close by, this could be ideal for you! Along with providing a competitive salary and excellent incentive scheme, this role will see you working with a high performing, close-knit team of four, with a clear vision and goals. You will be encouraged to share ideas and will have the opportunity to get involved in activities outside of a traditional QS role, such as Health & Safety, and building relationships with the Construction team on site. And, of course, you’ll also get to enjoy the security, benefits and recognition that come with working for a well-respected business unit within the Fletcher Building Group.
Applications should be made by submitting a CV and cover letter outlining your interest, motivation and what you would bring to this role by way of background, experience and fit for the role and our team. Please apply online or contact Olivia Finn on 0272509566 for more information.
