Comfortable at GM/CEO levels with customers, and innately understand the criticality of developing and managing relationships is key to your success



  • Professional Services Environment
  • Spanning Private and Public sectors
  • Hands-on National Role

'Unique' is a word that genuinely applies to this entity, given that they are one of the few organisations of its kind in New Zealand, who also hold a rare place in the global market with their highly specialised area of expertise.

Core to the role will be the on-going maximising of Government markets together with a large focus on developing the genuine potential of commercial customers nationally.  

 We stress that this is not a transactional market.

Your experience must be with somewhat complex professional service environments, comfortable at GM/CEO levels with customers, and innately understand the criticality of developing and managing  relationships, which will be at the heart of your success. Results seldom come quickly, so you must have high levels of patience and resilience, but never losing sight of securing results.

While a key and contributory member of the Senior Management Team, this is a hands-on role. You will lead a small, highly skilled team, and you must be someone who naturally leads business development from the front, operating from Board/CEO level to day-to-day management as required.

The “market” across which they operate is fascinating, important to everyday New Zealanders and never short of opportunity.  The ‘unique’ aspect comes from their market being well defined in some areas, and open to disruption in many others.  We are looking for a very special and capable professional to accelerate growth and help take this business forward.

You will be backed up by a substantial and highly skilled service delivery team.

This role is critical to the on-going success of the organisation, fundamentally taking responsibility for growth.  As such you will show;

  • A demonstrable background of success in high level business development or sales roles, from within the broader "services" environment.
  • Proven commercial management experience, ideally with extensive networks across the private and public sectors, with a genuine understanding of managing service contracts into Government.
  • Development and successful implementation of sales channels including "online," the latter having strong potential for this market.

You will work closely with a highly motivated CEO to deliver agreed goals and results and as the GM: Business Development, you will revel in taking responsibility for achieving the growth associated with those goals.

Please send your CV via the online channels or email to quoting ref. 3169165. For further information in strict confidence, please contact Tony Walsh on 029 2711101.

This role is open to New Zealand citizens and permanent residents only.
