General Manager – Scaffolding

The Company
This business is a leading provider of scaffolding and access solutions to the commercial construction industry. With a network of branches throughout New Zealand, long term career progression in a stable environment is assured. The Nelson branch is relatively young, with a few significant projects underway they are now looking to grow, develop and secure future local workloads in a growing region.

The Job
This is a “hands on” GM role. You will be leading a small team, working closely with the Ops Manager and regional manager to win business and meet growth targets. So initially this role will have a key focus on business development alongside other areas of expanding operations. Going forward there’s an opportunity to grow, foster and develop your team and set this business out as a leader in the region – as they are elsewhere in NZ.

The Candidate
The ideal candidate will be an outstanding commercial leader, with a track record developing strong customer relationships. You must be experienced in the construction industry, preferably with strong experience in scaffolding and/or formwork, however other sub-contractor or main contractor experience will be considered. This is a young team that is going places and as a natural leader you’ll be key in developing the culture of this group.
Experience needed:

  • Operations, Branch or General Management experience within construction
  • Ideally knowledgeable/well connected in the Nelson market
  • Ideally experienced in Scaffolding/height safety
