The Aliaxis Group is a global leader in the manufacture and distribution of market leading building and construction sector products, the NZ business thereby having access to world leading technology and innovation. With a turnover of NZD $4.5 billion, Aliaxis has operations in more than 45 countries and over 100 companies worldwide. The NZ business comprises well-known brands, Marley, RX Plastics, Dynex and Dux – all leaders in their markets. This role presents an opportunity to work within a fantastic team focused on growth and innovation and has great potential for further career growth.
  
This is a newly created position, which will see you will drive a key point of difference in the market by providing valuable technical resources and information to key stakeholders and the user base. While focused primarily on the Marley business initially, you will also be a strategic resource providing technical, product, and building sector knowledge to other Aliaxis business units. Varied in scope, the role encompasses proactive technical leadership and problem solving, from strategic planning through to ensuring high quality day to day technical support across the business. The role is strongly market facing, working with customer and sales teams providing education and training, supporting major merchant channels, contributing opinion to government and industry bodies, maintaining technical specifications and ensuring high quality customer and end user technical support is readily available.  As a key member of the marketing and product team, you will support product development initiatives through ensuring testing and confirmation of technical performance requirements. You will ensure all technical literature and collateral accurately and professionally reflects products, and that all products meet building compliance codes and standards. If you enjoy technical challenge and being at the forefront of the industry, this is an exciting role working with a talented and focused team. The role reports to both the GM Marketing and NZ Managing Director, reflecting its importance.   
  
Likely from an engineering background, you can capably straddle the strategic requirements of the role as well as implementing practical day-to-day technical improvements. Industry related experience would be valuable but more important is your capability to take ownership and deliver relevant technical expertise and information to the business. You will stand out as a leader, with strategic vision and the initiative to successfully identify, drive and execute projects. You have strong ability to motivate and influence others and enjoy liaising across different groups of people, internal teams, specifiers, sales channels, as well as end-user plumbers, electricians, etc. You will collaborate broadly across the organisation including internationally to drive value and innovation. High performing and confident in your ability, you demonstrate a strong team approach, but with sound capability to manage projects autonomously. You enjoy being a thought leader in the industry; personality wise you are grounded, engaging, and approachable, and very comfortable being hands on with the day-to-day aspects of the role.
