The role

This role reports to the National Maintenance and Upgrade Manager and is accountable for the delivery of responsive and routine repairs for the Wellington and South Island Housing New Zealand property portfolio through the management of the commercial relationships that exist between Housing New Zealand and external contracted parties, including, but not limited to, the performance-based maintenance contracts (PBMC). The MRM will manage a number of complex commercial relationships and lead a large and geographically diverse team to ensure that maintenance is delivered to agreed standards and that customer satisfaction targets are achieved.

The ideal candidate will also be expected to spend a minimum of two consecutive days per week in the non-base location.

To be successful in this role you will ideally have the following:

  • A relevant tertiary/management qualification or equivalent experience in a operational/delivery role or commercial management, ideally in the building maintenance or construction industry
  • Commercial and Contract Management certification at Practitioner level (or similar)
  • Property maintenance management experience in a high volume environment
  • Strong negotiation skills
  • Demonstrated experience in leading a large and geographically dispersed team
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
