About Us

If we could have it our way, people would talk a little less about housing and a lot more about living. That's because we believe the Kiwi dream is bigger than a quarter acre. It’s about living the life you want. So, we create neighbourhoods designed to nurture living in all its beauty, richness and variety. 

Why Join Us?

We’re a high performing business and are proud to say that we have a highly engaged and successful team. We have a fantastic people culture and encourage everyone to bring their full and genuine selves to work. Our workplaces are enriched by many different nationalities, languages, religions, customs, and lifestyles. We’re proud of this diversity and understand that it brings a richer and broader perspective to how we operate by helping us connect better with our people and with our customer base.

The Role

This is a permanent position based at our Canterbury Branch and reporting to our National HSE Manager.  You’ll spend part of your time in the office and the rest out on site across our various housing developments such as our One Central urban community and our master-planned residential community in Faringdon, Rolleston.  You will work closely with our own construction team as well as our subcontractors and skilled trades people. 

A key focus of this role will be to continually develop, improve and facilitate a strong safety culture and to ensure the provision of a safe working environment for employees and subcontractors.

To be successful in this role, you will need to have excellent administrative and interpersonal skills and the ability to positively increase H&S performance by influencing, supporting and coaching. The successful candidate will be able to modify and adapt to a wide range of people from senior managers to supervisors, skilled trades people and subcontractors. It goes without saying that your communication skills will be a key strength.


At Fletcher Living you will enjoy the benefits and recognition of working for a well-respected business unit within the Fletcher Building Group.  Along with providing a competitive salary this role will see you working with a high performing team with a clear vision and goals.  You will be encouraged to share ideas and will have the opportunity to build relationships with the Construction team on site.
