Reporting to our National Property and Procurement Manager this new role supports our national network of operations (specifically our assets team and our branch and workshop operations) with the timely and cost-effective procurement of consumable products, services and branch saleables, as well as fleet ordering, commissioning and delivery (e.g. office supplies, PPE, power tools, heavy machinery and vehicles). The role is primarily based at our support office in Penrose but there will be times when you're required onsite throughout our branch network.

With at least an intermediate level background in procurement/purchasing, we need someone who can build effective working relationships with suppliers and successfully drive best value and service. It's also an ideal role for someone with a hands-on attitude and an interest in machinery.

Other key tasks:

  • Manage costs, ensure product availability and assess business requirements
  • Resolve any stock discrepancies or non-conforming purchasing
  • Understanding of pricing and contract metrics and reporting on purchasing decisions
  • Act as key liaison point between the business and suppliers
  • Evaluate and consider new items as may be requested from business
  • Receipt new hire plant at branches - check it arrives in good order and is asset-tagged and branded

What you need:

  • An intermediate procurement/purchasing background
  • High levels of attention to detail to ensure data accuracy and integrity
  • Excellent planning and organisational skills
  • Intermediate knowledge of computer systems and software
  • Full Class 1 Driver Licence. Great if you have F, WTR endorsements (but we can arrange for you)

Providing essential services through a number of branches across NZ means Hirepool continues to recruit at this time. Please be assured that appropriate adjustments to our recruitment processes have been made to account for all Covid Alert Levels. We understand ongoing restrictions may impact exact start dates and can be flexible to account for individual situations.
