This well-known and highly successful privately owned manufacturing business, with branches spread across the country, has positioned itself as being an innovative leader in the marketplace. It provides a range of specialised packaging products to a broad variety of NZ companies across a wide range of industries.

Reporting to the CEO, and a key member of the SMT, this senior management role will be responsible for leading the operational delivery of all of its branches nationally. The role will provide a unique opportunity for you to build on the existing solid foundation, and to further enhance the business’ operational performance and delivery. There is an open mindedness to exploring and implementing creative and alternative ways of operating, while still maintaining a strong customer delivery focus. Strengthening existing customer relationships and exploring new strategic opportunities, will also be a key part of this role’s focus.

To be considered for this role, you must be highly personable, naturally self-confident and have a strong drive to achieve and improve on things operationally. You will also need to have a level head, and be able to manage pressure and solve problems in a highly responsive and pragmatic way. Sound and consistent decision making will also be important. In addition to these attributes, you must have a very strong customer focus, and constantly strive to ensure that the business delivers on expectations.

You must have proven manufacturing operational management experience across multiple sites at a senior level.  It is essential that you are an inspirational team leader who can grow your team’s skills and performance, and you must also have well developed communication skills. Experience in the procurement and negotiation of raw materials will be important.  Strong planning and organising capabilities will also be essential, as is a relevant tertiary qualification.

This is a special opportunity that has significant personal and professional growth potential, and for the right person, there will be career advancement opportunities within the business. It will appeal to a highly ambitious manufacturing manager wanting to progress their career for the medium term, and move to a more senior role that has greater challenges and diversity. There will be strong mentoring support available within the business to assist with your ongoing professional and management development.
