General Manager role Candidates available now
  • Dynamic industry
  • Perishable product
  • Multiple stakeholders
  • Needs someone to connect at a down-to-earth level, to engage, motivate and drive change
Our client employer's business is owned in part by a collective of suppliers, so we are looking for a special individual, who will be sensitive to the often-competing interests of these critical stakeholders.

The dynamic environment in which this business operates will necessitate legislative regulation from time-to-time – and to protect the industry in New Zealand, that regulation may need to be altered periodically, to take account of local market conditions. Thus, the ability to make a logical, sound and compelling business case – up to presenting at Government level – will be a requirement of the role. That said, our client employer will only consider someone who can also maintain collaborative, mutually beneficial working relationships with all of those around them.

This role may provide a longer-term promotional opportunity for the right person.

There will be a learning curve. It is expected that you might spend the next 2 years learning the ropes, due to the seasonal nature of the business. Throughout that time and thereafter, there will be the complexity of change to manage, as little in this business is static.

Rose Easter, Changing Jobs
With over 15 years' experience in consulting and recruitment management, I set up Changing Jobs to provide an honest, Kiwi alternative for employers and job applicants alike.  And it’s worked.  We already had an established network and our database has continued to grow.  Though based in Auckland, we provide assistance across the North Island and in Australia.
The Changing Jobs database and expertise span roles as diverse as Executive, Finance, Credit Management, Customer Service and Sales (see right and below, some of the roles we have assisted on).

Rose Easter, Business Owner - Changing Jobs


World Vision - Condensed In 2014, I travelled to Cambodia to do the 'Cycle Cambodia Challenge 2014' - a nearly 300km bike ride over 10 days, to help support the work that World Vision are doing in the Stong region of Cambodia.  It was cool to see the context in which World Vision are working (they're not working out of high rises in main street - they are working in the back roads of villages with dirt roads and primitive amenities).

The Shredder
A young engineer was leaving work late one evening when he found the company CEO standing in front of the shredding machine with a piece of paper in his hand.

"Listen", said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary has gone for the day.  Can you make this thing work?"

"Certainly", said the young engineer.  He took the piece of paper, inserted it in the machine and hit the start button.

"Excellent.  Excellent!" said the CEO as the paper disappeared inside the machine.  "I just need one copy."

Nailing The Job Interview
  • Employers often check Facebook these days, so make sure all your photos show you looking at a spreadsheet and punching the air!
  • "What would you say is your greatest weakness?"  Job applicant: "Sometimes I use big words that I don't fully understand in an effort to make myself seem more photosynthesis."
