Our client is a well established organisation in the manufacturing sector based in the Hawkes Bay which employs over 400 people across three key operating areas.

The role of Employment Relations & Culture Manager has been created to proactively promote and support a positive and sustainable working environment and culture where people are motivated to make an active contribution to organisational wellbeing and business success. Reporting to the GM People & Culture, this key leadership role will have responsibility to shape and implement excellent working practices which are positively endorsed by all stakeholders in a strongly unionised environment.
The successful candidate will be a talented, tertiary qualified (preferably Law and/or Psychology) ER professional with at least seven years’ experience in this field and a demonstrated track record of success in positive union negotiations. Ideally this experience will have been gained in a complex manufacturing environment where continuous improvement has been a key focus. Additional skills and experience include:
  • Excellent spoken and written communication skills with the proven ability to influence, negotiate and coach at all levels
  • Strong critical and analytical thinking
  • Robust emotional intelligence with the ability to demonstrate resilience under pressure
  • Effective planning and organising skills supported by a commitment to deliver on promises
  • Highly customer focused, able to build sustainable and trusted business partnerships which drive a common sense of purpose and collective responsibility
  • Professionally credible with the mana, energy and drive to make a significant difference
