- Job Reference:
- Closing Date:29 Jan 2023
Mico New Zealand is proud of its history of serving our communities for the past 76 years. 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 building industry company. With 69 branches and around 550 employees throughout New Zealand, we are the biggest name in plumbing and bathroom supplies.
Our Mico Mt Wellington store is a well-established and successful branch, boasting a beautiful showroom and providing trade solutions to a large, loyal local trade customer base, residential solutions to home builders and commercial solutions to the local business sector.
We have an exciting opportunity in this role, where you’ll join a 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 staff, 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 with Saturday mornings 8-12 about one-in-three. Some travel will occasionally 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.
Success in this role is about leading successfully, and whilst product and industry knowledge would be preferred, 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.

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, such as an Employee Education Fund and an exciting and forward-thinking new parental leave policy.
