Commercial Manager

We have an opportunity for a highly organised, focused individual to join us as a Commercial Manager. This is a pivotal role within the organisation, providing financial management support to Common Fund entities, assisting with their financial and tax obligations, working closely with the business managers, and the responsibility of continuous budgeting and managing audits.

So much more than an ‘accountant’ position, this is all about operational performance, obtaining and evaluating critical data to formulate and present the financial intelligence which informs business strategy. Engaging collaboratively with managers across Te Tumu Paeroa this role has the mandate to be asking the questions, providing recommendations, challenging where necessary, highlighting opportunities and risks, ensuring a ‘no surprises’ approach across the business.

Curiosity to explore and understand the metrics will be at your core.  You will prefer being out in the business – questioning, learning, sharing insights.  Professionally qualified (CA) you will bring substantial commercial and financial experience, including strength in costing and forecasting.

In return, we will provide you with an exciting and rewarding career with many opportunities for personal growth and professional development. We understand the importance of whanau and a healthy balance between work and life, and to support you in achieving this we offer flexible working arrangements and generous, flexible leave provisions.
