Mico New Zealand is proud of its history of serving New Zealand communities. 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 Wanaka store is a small but well-established branch, boasting a beautiful 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. Currently sharing premises with our sister company, PlaceMakers, we’re excited to be moving to our newly built premises (one km up the road) in October 2022.

The role

We have an exciting role, where you’ll join a well-established and stable branch and enjoy the variety and opportunities of working in a diverse and experienced team, within a large organisation. Currently sharing premises with the PlaceMakers branch, Mico branch will soon move to its own exciting new premises. At our Wanaka branch, we’re committed to improving our customer experience, and we want our staff to have the same passion.

Reporting to the Branch Manager, this is a varied role that will see you working closely with your customers, who are made up of tradies, businesses and homeowners. 

While most of your role will be driving and deliveries and loading/offloading, you will spend some time in the branch, serving customers at the counter, and occasionally receiving and sorting incoming deliveries. You’ll have the chance to learn our products, and this will give you the chance to progress in the branch, the business, and the organisation.

This is a permanent, fulltime role, working Mondays to Fridays (potential rostered Saturdays 9-12 once established in the new premises).

About you

To shine in this role, you’ll bring a customer-focused attitude and strong work ethic to the business and be prepared to work closely and flexibly with the rest of our team. The ability to build rapport and relationships should be your strength, and you’ll be IT savvy, too.

You will need to be a confident and experienced driver, capable of driving on unsealed roads. A background in building-related industry would be preferable, with exposure to the health and safety requirements of construction and building sites.

There is manual handling required, and so you’ll need to be physically fit and strong. A full, clean class 1 drivers’ licence is essential, and a forklift licence would be a bonus! (although we can help you get your licence)

What we can offer you

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

Please note:  
Vaccination status (whether vaccinated or not) is recorded by the business
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

We are proud of the incredible diversity of people who make up our business! As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we strive to create an inclusive environment for all our employees across our national network of branches throughout New Zealand.
