Job Published: 19 days ago
Our client is an award-winning South Island owned and operated architectural residential building firm who are looking for an experienced foreman to lead a team based in the Mackenzie District. 

They are well established and have a pipeline of work booked up for the next 24+ months. 

Let's talk about the Mackenzie District:

Maybe you know the area well? If so, you can jump to the next section. But if not.......

Are you wanting to make the move from city/larger town life? The Mackenzie District is your opportunity to step in to the great wide open and discover NZ's highest mountains, longest glaciers, vivid turquoise lakes, golden grasslands and clearest starry skies.

Think hiking, skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, fishing and hunting. This is a perfect location for outdoor pursuits. They aren't compulsory though and applications will certainly be accepted from qualified applicants with other personal interests!

Has this got you thinking? Finally, an opportunity to combine your profession and personal interests in one on...... 

The role:

Reporting through to the GM (based in Canterbury) you will have responsibility for the day-to-day operations onsite including team leadership. You will be a key figure in project delivery, ensuring excellence is delivered on what are high end and innovative residential builds. This is an "on the tools" role.

Who are you?:

You are already working at foreman level (trade qualified) but there is something missing in terms of what you are currently doing vs what you want to be doing - you want to work for a passionately and proud run building company who are continuously recognised for both their service and results.

Ideally you will have been exposed to high-end residential builds and while this is not essential you will need to show a genuine interest in stepping up into this area of work.

You are a great people leader and lead from the front in all that you do. You have first rate co-ordination skills and get things done through successful project management and keeping your eye on the ball at all times.

Your communication skills will rely heavily on confidence and approachability - you will be dealing with a wide range of people so you must be relatable to a diverse group.

What's in it for you?:
  • Market leading salary
  • Tools of the trade including vehicle, phone, company uniform
  • Social company culture - think breakfasts, social club events, annual sporting cup, end of year getaway
  • Full support from the GM and MD
  • Access (in time) to a company profit share scheme
  • Interesting and not "run of the mill" work
  • And the opportunity to work and play in what is arguably one of the most majestic regions in New Zealand
