Hydraulink Hose Solutions - Central Auckland - Auckland

The Person

This initiative is just one of the reasons we’re the industry-leading player in New Zealand and continue to grow in new markets. It’s a hugely exciting time for us and potentially for you.

Because, to truly realise our bold ambitions, we need a marketing/business management mind that isn’t afraid to make things happen.

You’re a potent blend of strategist and pragmatic leader with strong commercial experience. You’re ruthless at driving service standards and the consistent delivery of these.

You also have the people skills to unite internal resources to build and deliver these service standards. Ideally your experience will include solid exposure to a franchise style model.

You will also have proven strengths in strategy development and market research.

The Role

When you join us we’ll throw you the keys to our mobile contractor/owner-operator strategy. Payback for Hydraulink will be you developing and delivering world-class mobile service initiatives.

Reporting directly to the National Sales & Service Manager,  you’ll have considerable autonomy and the mandate to make key decisions.

You’ll quickly show us why you’re a leader in your space, as you drive everything from:

  • implementing national mobile breakdown service standards,
  • improving existing service processes, procedures and delivery mechanisms, and
  • polishing our mobile service product to actively support sales growth and enhance the customer experience.

You will also help us expand our existing mobile service coverage by recruiting and developing new contractor/owner-operator sales & service technicians (HSSTs) across the country; for ourselves, for our franchisees, and for our distributors.

And finally....

As we said before, we're always shifting up a gear so if you want to grow your career and to be seriously challenged this could be the place for you!

The Company

At Hydraulink we like to keep things moving, it’s in our DNA. After all we’re a leading multinational hose and fittings brand with a huge network in Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific. And we have driven that service reach on a unique blend of company branches, sub-contractor franchisees and distributors.

We’re building on almost 75 years of success, and constantly looking at what’s next to drive the future for us, and to deliver for our customers. This is where you come in.


Applicants MUST have NZ Residency or a valid NZ Work Visa to be considered, plus a current NZ driver licence. Please note that a Pre-employment medical, including drug and alcohol screen, is part of the recruitment process.
