UBT Recruitment provides professional talent acquisition services to a broad network of SME businesses across Australia & New Zealand. We are currently partnering with a family owned and operated business based in South Auckland, to recruit a fantastic Nursery Assistant/Salesperson to join their growing and dynamic team.

The Company

Our client has been operating a successful family owned business for over 50 years, specialising in container grown large trees.  They service the landscape industry, commercial and retail customers throughout New Zealand, and with over 500 tree varieties spread across two Auckland sites, they are New Zealand's original and largest specimen tree nursery.

The Role

You'll love this role if you have a passion for being hands on and helping people. The role is very customer focussed and will see you liaising with a range of people from landscapers to the general public, providing advice in selecting the right trees for their specific needs. You will be required to provide a high level of customer service as well as ensuring the nursery is well taken care of. A reasonable level of physical fitness is required to help customers select and transport trees. Ideally you will have come from a retail sales or landscaping/garden design background and can demonstrate sound tree knowledge.

This role includes the following responsibilities:

  • Being the first point of contact for customers either in person, via phone or email
  • Providing knowledge and assistance regarding which type of trees will suit each customer's needs and tastes  
  • Creating customer quotes, providing photos and checking stock availability
  • Follow-up with customers where required

What we are looking for:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, someone who thrives on providing customers with a first-rate experience
  • Strong customer service experience
  • A friendly, team focussed attitude
  • Proficient Microsoft Suite computer skills
  • Knowledge of trees would be highly advantageous but is not essential

What is in it for you?

  • Great salary plus generous bonus system
  • Opportunity to join a successful, stable and growing business
  • Outdoor sales role within a botanical setting
  • A high-energy, passionate, supportive environment

If you are passionate about customer service with a high work ethic, seeking to develop your career in a successful Kiwi owned business that is going places, we would love to hear from you.
