The increase in opportunities and growth of current programmes means we need extra resources. Plus, we are sadly saying good bye to Michelle Duncan, our project manager, who has been with us for nine years.

All this means we now have three exciting opportunities for capable and suitably experienced individuals to join our team.

PROGRAMME DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

Reporting to the CEO, you will be responsible for the ongoing development of product stewardship programmes and related projects, from concept through to delivery.

As well as leading the development of assigned programmes, you will manage our ‘opportunities pipeline’. You will work collaboratively with the CEO and senior team to deliver sustainable and commercially sound business growth.

No two days will be the same! To be successful in this role you will bring a broad range of skills – project management, business development, research and reporting, stakeholder engagement, business planning, the list goes on. Ultimately, you will be the “driver” that propels the development of new programmes forward in a coordinated manner.

Ideally, you will bring an understanding of the waste-to-resources sector. You will be knowledgeable about environmental issues and possess a strong affinity for our business and the programmes we develop and manage.

Additional skills and attributes required for this role include:

  • Strategic thinker who can see opportunities and take action
  • Superior project management credentials
  • Advanced customer engagement skills
  • Confident influencer at all levels of an organisation, able to take others ‘on the journey’
  • Hands-on in your approach, comfortable taking ownership
  • Committed to continuous improvement
  • Excellent computer / reporting skills
  • A commitment to Health and Safety

Above all, you will represent a great “fit” with the wider 3R team. You will enjoy working collaboratively in a close knit team of creative, like-minded individuals.

Applications close 4:00pm Friday 8th April 2016.


LOGISTICS COORDINATOR, Hastings

Reporting to the Operations Manager, your key responsibility will be to plan, prepare and coordinate the collection activity associated with the nationwide programmes that 3R manage. Specifically, this involves scheduling the drivers, processing staff and collections to ensure that the programmes operate efficiently and effectively. You will build and maintain excellent relationships with all stakeholders, including the site “hosts”, anticipating and managing any issues as they arise.

It is likely that you will have relevant experience in comparable logistics role(s), coordinating resources in a proactive and highly organised manner. You will bring a strong customer service orientation, with the ability to influence at all levels.

Over time, this role will expand to include the training of the site hosts, so the ability to convey information in a clear and concise manner is important. Some national travel will be a requirement of the role.

Additional skills and attributes required for this role include:

  • Proactive by nature, ability to plan effectively and manage multiple resources
  • Excellent time management skills
  • Sound communication skills, both written and oral
  • Ability to gather , interpret and develop solutions to logistics issues
  • Possess a strong continuous improvement orientation
  • Advanced computer skills, including Word and Excel, including a high level of accuracy
  • Positive by nature, a self-starter
  • An absolute commitment to safety and an understanding of relevant environmental H&S legislation

Above all, you will represent a great “fit” with the wider 3R team. You will enjoy contributing in a positive team environment.

Applications close 4:00pm Wednesday 13th April 2016.

CHEMICAL COLLECTIONS COORDINATOR, Hastings

Reporting to the National Programme Manager – Chemicals, you will manage the day-to-day operations for the Chemicals programme. You will coordinate the safe collection, handling and disposal of obsolete and unwanted stocks of agricultural, household and garden chemicals.

You will play a key liaison role with farmers and growers, fielding calls, answering any technical queries, taking bookings, planning and organising chemical collections events. As such, it is likely that you will possess a technical background in chemicals management/handling. Ideally, you will be an approved agrichemicals handler.

In addition to the above, you will personally undertake the North Island-based collection events, so regular out-of-town travel is a requirement of this role. You will be a competent driver and hold a clean Class 2 licence, as well as a DG endorsement and current forklift operating certificate.

Additional skills and attributes required for this role include:

  • Highly organised, excellent attention to detail
  • Possess a strong customer service ethic
  • Excellent time management skills
  • Strong computer skills, including Word and Excel, including a high level of accuracy
  • Ability to work autonomously as well as part of a team
  • Possess a strong continuous improvement orientation
  • Positive by nature, a self-starter
  • Build excellent relationships, both phone-based and in person
  • Possess a strong affinity with the primary sector
  • An understanding of relevant environmental H&S legislation and standards including the RMA, ACVM and HSNO acts

You may have a background in the agrichemicals sector, possibly with one of the manufacturers or rural retailers. You could be a spray manager / chemicals store manager seeking a fresh challenge. Or, you could be that special person with a background in Chemistry or related science with the technical skills required for this role.

Applications close 4:00pm Wednesday 13th April 2016.

If you are genuinely excited about these opportunities, we would love to hear from you.
