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. We are part of New Zealand Distribution, which in turn is part of Fletcher Building, a diversified global building industry company.

With 60+ branches throughout New Zealand and over 450 employees nationwide, we are the biggest name in plumbing and bathroom supplies. We are also part of Fletcher Building so for you that adds up to great training and future career development, plus excellent company benefits.

The role:

This is a newly created role and you will report to the Head of the EH&S for New Zealand Distribution (NZD) and which also means you will have peers (from our PlaceMakers brand) to support you and to bounce ideas with. 

This is a sole authority role within Mico, however the ’Manager’ aspect of this role derives from the fact that you will sit on the SMT and you will be involved in strategic decisions around the NZD H&S plan which you will be responsible for communicating and executing within Mico. We will be looking for an individual with excellent stake-holder management experience and the ability to work with a diverse range of people to influence our safety journey, the goal of which is to ensure that all injuries are prevented.  

You will however have access to an administrative resource who is responsible for tracking and booking the compliance training aspects of the business. 

This role will ideally suit someone who wants to feel deeply connected to the organisation they work for. Being sole charge there will be times where you will need to roll your sleeves up and really get into the detail and/or the support aspects required by our branches. However, given the full ownership remit this role will have for H&S performance, you will work across all levels and it will be your ability to influence and shift mindsets which will result in your success.

This is a very exciting time to join us business. Fletcher Building have undertaken a significant reset under our value known as ‘Protect’ which creates huge opportunity for someone with tested expertise and a passion for H&S to come on board and really shift the safety dial. We are working towards ensuring that ‘Protect’ as a value and the associated workstreams, projects and training will drive this into the DNA of the organisation and our people at all levels. 

If you are looking for an organisation where you can truly make an impact around keeping people safe and getting them home every night, all whilst lifting the bar on all aspects relating to H&S – then this is the opportunity for you. Come and join us on our journey around ‘Protect’ and the belief that all injuries can be prevented! As the successful candidate in this space you will have the opportunity to really drive your own career success story.
