Mitre 10 Mega Wanaka - Homewares and Lighting/Electrical Retail Assistants

Mitre 10 continues to be the preferred DIY and Trade store of choice for many New Zealanders with a vision to inspire our customers in their everyday lives. 

We have two roles which will require a visionary person who can convert a whispered desire into an everyday inspiration.  Listening carefully to the customer’s requirements and particular context and suggesting tailored solutions to exceed their expectations.

If you have a passion for anticipating trends and can create ambience through staging we would love to see your portfolio – before and after photos would be great or shown through an Instagram account.  Your work doesn’t need be in a formal setting as we know there are creative types who have not embraced their gift in a commercial setting, and yet live and breathe aesthetics.  Product knowledge can be trained. 

Reporting to a Zone leader you will suggest product lines and ranging to inspire our diverse customers.

Balancing the constraints of a fixed budget and inspirational offerings as well as creating visual displays for customers to viscerally experience potential options.

The main reason for our success is the outstanding customer service we deliver every day. We aim at being the best home improvement retailer throughout the country and help Kiwis love where they live.

We live by our core values: We stick together so that everyone wins, we're customer obsessed, we are honest and fair and we strive for excellence.
