- Closing Date:07 Apr 2023
Mico New Zealand is proud of its history of serving our communities for the past 75 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 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 Greymouth store is a busy and well-performing branch, boasting a beautiful showroom and providing trade solutions to a large local trade customer base, residential solutions to home builders and commercial solutions to the local business sector. Our smaller Mico Hokitika store is a well-established branch with a strong customer base.
About the role:
We have an exciting opportunity for you to be a dynamic part of this well-performing crew, overseeing the branch and leading the team to even 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 Regional Manager, the Branch Manager role has 7 staff and works closely alongside the regional sales team. You will lead the 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, full time role working Monday to Friday and occasional Saturday mornings. Travel will be required to oversee both branches, and some additional 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 a work-life balance.
Success in this role is about leading successfully across a multi-site area, 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 on-going career development, plus company benefits.
Please note, a full pre-employment medical, including a drug test, will be required and you must currently be legally entitled to live and work permanently in New Zealand.
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.
