Can you make the rubber meet the road?

Nelson is a great place to life and work! Even better when you are joining a friendly team that already has a great grasp of what is needed to be done. Read on to get a handle on what we can offer the right person.

Our local Mag & Turbo in central Nelson is needing a new manager to step in and continue the growth trajectory of an established, professional and cohesive team. Some internal changes within the group have created an opportunity for someone new to come on board and build on and maintain a superb company culture.

As manager you will be instantly supported by the national Mag & Turbo structure as well as locally as a part of the well established and respected Bowater Motor Group. There will be expectations to strive for, goals to set, and targets to achieve; so we are looking for someone with previous management, maturity and team leadership experience.

A large part of the role will be dealing with our established customer base, as well as reps and others within our large motor group.
You don't necessarily need to know lots about tyres. Knowing about people is a more valuable skill to us, and how to get the best out of your experienced and knowledgeable team is a far better asset to have.
