Part time - Full time (NZTE celebrates an inclusive and supportive culture so for this opportunity we welcome part-time as well as full-time applicants)
Are you passionate about helping local businesses succeed on the global stage? Have you lived and worked overseas, returned to your Nelson roots but still crave the benefits of working for a truly global organisation? Opportunities like this don't come around often, but 2018 is your chance to utilise your experience, skills and passions!
NZTE has one simple purpose, to help New Zealand businesses grow internationally - bigger, better, faster - for the benefit of New Zealand. We thrive on providing our customers with world-class advice on how to expand internationally and helping them build the capability they need to succeed on the world stage.
Our Customer Manager creates true partnerships with an array of businesses across Nelson/Blenheim, by understanding their business, getting to the heart of the key challenges and opportunities they face, and building an international growth strategy together.
You'll have empathy for local businesses because you understand where they've come from, the challenges they face, and how to help them succeed on their internationalisation journey. You'll be credible with customers because of your strong commercial experience, your effective communication skills, ability to build and maintain relationships proactively, and to deliver outcomes by harnessing the collective strengths of NZTE.
In return for these skills, you'll be exposed to an array of businesses across different sectors and have the opportunity to connect with colleagues in 46 international offices. You'll also be joining a strong team of commercially astute individuals who learn from each other's depth of experience and who have a strong commitment to lifting NZ's economic performance.
This role is based in Nelson but its portfolio of customers are spread across Nelson and Blenheim so there is some travel involved (Approx. 1-2 trips per month)
Don't hesitate, if you are innovative with a can-do attitude, a little adventurous, and open to being challenged, then you'd be a great fit!
You must have the legal right to live and work in New Zealand to apply for this position.
Applications close Sunday 14th December 2017 at 11.55pm (NZ time).
