About the role
We are looking for super-duper capable, keen as a bean, up-and-coming comms Rockstar to join our Corporate Affairs team as our Communications Co-ordinator. Working for one of New Zealand’s largest listed companies, with 30 plus different businesses, 14,500 + people and 1000’s of customers and even more investors and shareholders this communications role is not one for the faint of heart but is an opportunity that is rarely available.

The Communications Co-ordinator is a busy, entry level role that includes communication duties plus organisational and administrative support for the Corporate Affairs team.  Playing the leading support role for the team will allow you and the team to drive forward communication initiatives that safeguard and enhance the reputation of Fletcher Building, plus you’ll gain invaluable experience in internal and external communication, event development, media relations, social media and channel management.

Attitude is what counts here – we know you’ll be joining us with limited experience, and we are 100% cool with that!  What we are looking for is someone who is prepared to learn, has a hunger to grow and develop and understands that involves perfecting the grunt work alongside inquisitively grasping opportunities to work on things only a large complex corporate can provide.

You’ll work under the guidance of some seriously experienced Corporate Affairs professionals who are happy to pass on their knowledge and you’ll also be exposed to amazing NZ business minds, ensuring you receive the kind of on-the-job training and guidance you need to become a first-class corporate affairs specialist.

About you 
You’ll be a recent Comms graduate who is a curious and energetic self-starter. You’ll be creative, and a natural storyteller.  You’ll have the fortitude to think on your feet and quickly pivot direction as priorities change. 

You will be able to navigate your way through ambiguity and have no qualms about asking for help or seeking clarification to get the job done right.

Most importantly you will understand that great comms is about building strong and mutually beneficial relationships with all your stakeholders. You must love working with people and prefer inter-personal communication rather than sitting behind a screen.
