Mt Maunganui, New Zealand

Reference: 5788118

  • A great frontline management opportunity where you can make a real difference
  • A great team-working environment
  • Great range of employee benefits

Our Portables business is a National specialised hire business within Hirepool with products such as Portaloos, industrial use fencing, barriers and luxury toilet units. Within our National Portables branch network, this Mt Maunganui branch supports a wide and varied customer base around the Bay of Plenty from small building firms through to global infrastructure businesses and everyone in between.

This is a key role where your remit is the overall accountability for branch performance. This includes the achievement of financial targets, ensuring that operational standards are maintained, and that the team are always working safely while ensuring excellent service delivery to our broad range of customers.

In joining this team you will be responsible for an Assistant Branch Manager and as well as a team of drivers who are responsible for the delivery and cleaning requirements of our Portaloo fleet.

To ensure successful revenue generation you will be commercially minded, a strong negotiator and have superb customer relationship management skills with the ability to develop and maintain strong business networks. If you have worked in the hire industry that would be an advantage, however this opportunity would also suit someone from a freight, transport / logistics background due to the similarities of leading a fast paced operation where the management of the people and customer expectations are key to a commercially successful business.

What you need:

  • A full driver licence
  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to engage effectively with people at all levels
  • Significant staff management experience
  • Confidence and experience with managing the commercial and financial requirements
