Are you looking for a challenging, career development management role in electricity contracting?

Delta is a diverse contracting and infrastructure services business based in Dunedin with operations reaching across the South Island.  Its sister company and largest client Aurora Energy is the electricity distribution business for greater Dunedin and Central Otago.  The organisation is currently undertaking a significant transformation project called Project New Energy to orientate their structure and culture toward customer service, technical agility and a more future based focus.  This process has resulted in the creation of a number of dynamic and interesting positions across the business which they now seek high calibre applications for, including the Regional Manager – Central Otago.

This key role, which reports to the GM Operational Service Delivery, leads a Central Otago based team of 50 people delivering planned and customer driven electricity distribution works on the Aurora network in the region.  The Regional Manager’s responsibilities include effective team leadership, ensuring performance delivery, increasing operational efficiency and developing relationships with potential customers.  The ongoing development and strengthening of safety and culture are critical focuses of this role.  The appointee will confirm and ensure that Delta’s policies and standards are adhered to and met at all times.  The Regional Manager will represent Delta and Aurora in the wider Central Otago community. 

We have particular interest in highly motivated individuals with experience managing contracts and large teams in the electricity or other relevant infrastructure sectors.  The proven ability to effectively lead, manage and develop contracting teams and individuals is essential.  Candidates will be commercially astute and highly safety and customer focused.  They will possess effective communication skills together with advanced interpersonal and relationship skills.  A relevant tertiary qualification or compensating experience is required.

This critical senior level Cromwell-based opportunity should appeal to strongly performing contract management professionals looking to take their next career step.  Business growth opportunities and the size of the region will ensure that the role is both challenging and stimulating.
