Branch Manager - Warkworth

An exciting chance to lead a team of people passionate about Why we do what we do
Join a well-established, stable branch and work with an experienced and collaborative team
Permanent, fulltime role based at our Warkworth Branch
Great salary package including Tool of Trade vehicle + incentive bonus + company benefits

Mico New Zealand is proud of its 75-year history. 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 Fletcher Building, a diversified global building industry company. With 66 branches and over 500 employees throughout New Zealand, we are the biggest name in plumbing and bathroom supplies. 

Our Mico Warkworth store is a well-established and well-performing branch, boasting a stunning showroom while also providing trade solutions to a large and loyal trade customer base, residential solutions to home builders and commercial solutions to the local business sector.

About the role:

We have an exciting opportunity in this role, where you’ll join a stable and well-performing team and lead them on to 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 Hub Manager, the Branch Manager role has five direct reports, and works closely alongside the regional sales team. You will lead the branch’s 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, fulltime role, working Mondays to Fridays with rostered Saturdays (one in three- or four). Some very occasional travel will be required to attend supplier or sales events, but ours is a business which is mindful and respectful of the need for work-life balance.

About you:

Success in this role is about leading successfully, 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.

About what we can offer you:

In return, we’ll offer you a competitive package, excellent opportunities for training and development, and a strong and supportive team environment. As Mico New Zealand is also part of Fletcher Building, there are great opportunities for training and career development, plus company benefits.

Applications close on Sunday, 31st October 2021 (unless the role is filled sooner). 

Please note:  
A full, clean New Zealand drivers’ licence is required.
A full pre-employment medical, including a drug test, will be required. 
You must currently be legally entitled to live and work permanently in New Zealand, to be considered for this role.
