​This growing NZ company, manufacturing both in Auckland and in Christchurch, are taking market share with their clever customised tank, pipe and drainage/water systems.The product ideas they develop come from getting close to clients (your job), and bringing solutions at an affordable price and Kiwi Ingenuity.

You’ll excel at this Business Development Manager job if you’re an experienced Civil Engineer who’s worked in civil construction, understands civil contractors and knows what contractors need in a supplier to enable them to build top-quality, high-performing solutions for their clients – especially councils and municipalities.

You will be confident at connecting with Tier 1 and 2Civil Engineering Contractors, Designers, Consulting Engineers, Council Clients.You’ll understand what it takes to get products and solutions approved with Councils, regulatory bodies and stakeholders.You will understand engineering detail; how to work with these entities and how to get specified into a range of Civil Water applications such as Roading projects, Rail projects as well as general drainage and stormwater infrastructure.

You will enjoy working for a Company who design and manufacture new products; can redesign or modify existing projects and who already have a track-record of making solutions that are super-durable and save time and money for the Contractor who’s building/installing your pipes, tanks and related Stormwater handling product range.

To grow the reputation and market penetration of this already established brand, you’ll initially travel maybe up to a couple of weeks per month NZ wide, building yours and your brand’s profile.Further down the track some travel can be relieved as established relationships can be effectively progressed by phone etc once your face has become known.

As you get around the country, you’ll be prospecting for opportunities, pricing work and following up to get contracts signed.

You’ll enjoy the culture here immensely.These are down-to-earth Kiwis who excel at innovating and bring a sense of humour to work.Once you’ve got your training wheels off, you’ll be running yourself and planning how to deliver your sales results without a micromanager niggling at you.

This is absolutely a blue-sky opportunity with a successful and growing brand, supplying a busy, competitive and demanding market where over-achievers become icons of the industry and have friends everywhere they go.

It’s an opportunity to combine your awesome people skills with a good deal of seeing the country whilst using your engineering technical knowledge to provide solutions and establish new products into a place in the list of options for building great water assets all over New Zealand.

These guys have a flexible attitude to negotiating a remuneration package that will motivate you and reward your hard work, whilst giving you confidence you’ll always be able to pay the bills.

The ideal candidate will have a Civil Engineering degree/diploma but string experience will definitely also be considered.
