About the company

My client’s business is road transport. With sites across Australia and New Zealand, they are a leading supplier of road transport equipment for the general freight, temperature-

controlled freight and bulk transport market sectors.

About the role

They are seeking a Country Manager to lead the New Zealand arm of this successful business. Reporting to the General Manager International (Australia based), you will drive strategic growth and operational excellence.

You will have full accountability of all divisions within New Zealand, including Sales, Operations, Supply, Engineering, HR and HSE, Service, and Finance (indirect).

You will lead and manage a team with eight direct reports, but responsibility for a staff of around 100 across sites in Auckland and Christchurch.

You will take responsibility for the H&S culture. You will have the ability to build relationships with all stakeholders across the group and gain a position of trust and respect, while becoming known as a leader within the business.

About you

We envisage a few clear pathways into this role - you may be in a national operations role, managing multi-sites, or in a medium sized enterprise and this is the obvious next step.

Or perhaps you are in a large corporate, running a business unit and you are wanting some space. Either way, you have come up via operations, and are both customer and people centric and can demonstrate success as a commercial leader.

We expect that manufacturing or engineering will be in your background at some point and potentially transport, but we will consider transferrable sectors.

As a person, you’ll be resilient, a leader with good energy who wants a bit a challenge and excitement. This business is on a good path to growth, there is a sound plan in place and some interesting projects on the horizon.

This role is based in Takanini and comes with a package appropriate for the seniority of the role.
