Location: Palmerston North, Manawatu-Wanganui
Job Type: Permanent
Reference: 200181415_1601414272
Salary: Negotiable

We have a great opportunity for an experienced hands on client relationship developer to lead and grow our Palmerston North and Wanganui branches.

Our regional branches represent 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 provincial centres throughout the country

This Palmerston North based 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, leading and driving a team 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 local economy, the people and the down to earth patriotic nature we have in this part of the world. And some sound exposure to multiple business sectors including manufacturing, logistics, roading/infrastructure and engineering.

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

You will:

 Lead by example, supporting and motivating your small team

 Seek out, win and maximise sales within existing customers, but also through growth of our client base

 Exceed financial targets

 Promote company driven key initiatives with a local flavour

 Ensure Health & Safety compliance is maintained - to both company and client standards

In this role you will be a critical part of driving the success of the Palmerston North and Wanganui branches. We require 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 sometimes does. You'll therefore need to be someone with resilience and a 'never say die' approach, providing exceptional service to both clients and candidates whilst also working within financial guidelines.

Experience running a successful small B2B business or a branch of a national entity will be highly regarded.
