Branch and Business Development Manager

Location: Whangarei, Northland
Job Type: Permanent
Reference: 200170955_1592261776
Salary: Negotiable

We have a great opportunity for an experienced hands on client relationship developer to lead and grow our Whangarei Branch.

Whangarei represents a key part of AWF's strategy to maintain its position as NZ's leading provider of labour hire and permanent placement services to key regional centres throughout the country

This position revolves around growing business in a competitive environment through development and execution of a sound sales plan, delivering first class service to clients and candidates alike, and operating within the risk management parameters of the company as a whole.

Ideally we'd like you to have a good understanding of the Northland economy, the people and the down to earth patriotic nature we have in this part of the world. And some sound exposure to the infrastructure and/or engineering sectors.

The focus is on sales and people - both our clients and candidates.

You will:

  • Lead by example, supporting and motivating your small team
  • Seek out, win and maximise sales within existing customers, but also through expansion of our client base into additional sectors
  • Meet financial and cash flow targets
  • Promote company driven key initiatives with a Northland flavour
  • Ensure H&S compliance is maintained - to both company and client standards


In this role you will be a critical part of improving the success of the branch. The branch requires a self-motivator with focus and drive, who can juggle conflicting priorities, work smart to meet the demand, keep cool under pressure and provide solutions. We are people finding people for people, and everything that can go wrong does. You'll therefore need to be someone with resilience and a 'never say die' approach to pleasing both clients and candidates whilst also working within financial guidelines.

Experience running a successful small business or a branch of a national entity will be highly regarded.
