We are looking for a modern, highly motivated, executive manager with experience in a relevant retail/trade environment. This experience is likely to include merchandising, marketing, supply, financial management and culture development. The proven ability to achieve agreed growth, revenue and profit targets in a competitive market environment is essential. You will have a vital, engaging personality and be able to demonstrate the ability to relate and interact effectively with both customers (retail and trade) and staff. The ability to provide effective leadership and encourage the professional development of staff is a core requirement.
This is a critical appointment for the ongoing growth and development of McAlpines Mitre 10 MEGA Rangiora. A remuneration package reflecting the level and responsibility of this position (including a significant results based incentive component) will be negotiated with the successful applicant.
