Head of Team Member Wellbeing

The Warehouse Group is moving into an exciting phase as we transform our way of working as the retail industry continues to evolve. We are looking for an energetic, experienced Head of Team Member Wellbeing who will play an important role in helping our business deliver their strategic goals.


The Warehouse Group (TWG) is a New Zealand success story, founded by Sir Stephen Tindall and grown from The Warehouse; we are the largest general merchandise retailer in NZ with $3 billion in sales. We have 270+ retail stores, online stores as well as distribution and fulfilment centres throughout NZ. TWG employs over 12,000 people across New Zealand and our team members, contractors and customer’s safety is paramount.  Great strides have been achieved in this area but we have an appetite to be ahead of the game and do more, hence we have introduced this new position to take our Health and Wellbeing culture and performance to the next level.  


This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Health and Safety professional to join our Health, Safety & Wellness team (HS&W) working across our four retail Brands – The Warehouse Limited, Warehouse Stationery, Noel Leeming and Torpedo7. Reporting to Terry Johnson, our GM of Health, Safety & Wellbeing, you will be working across our business functions forming and leading the change of Health, Safety & Wellbeing @ The Warehouse Group.


The role:

  • Provide strong leadership for Safety and Wellbeing across the business
  • The coaching, mentoring and influencing of key senior stakeholders (executives and senior’s managers) on Team Member Wellbeing
  • Ownership of the ACC Partnership Programme
  • Strong understanding of claims and case management for work related injuries
  • Management of Wellbeing programmes
  • Strong verbal and written communication across the organisation and effectively negotiate safe outcomes.
  • Active demonstration of high standards to keeping our team members, customers, contractors and visitors safe from harm. 


About you:

You are a natural and respected professional who exudes passion for this field.  Equally important will be your ability to influence and quickly gain credibility with senior leadership teams of the various brands in the business; clearly communicating a future vision and implementing that vision. 


We are looking for someone with proven experience of implementing Health and Safety initiatives which correlate to the size and complexity of our group. Ideally we are looking at previous experience in national level roles, with evidence of positively impacting a company's culture of HS&W, especially in the area of Wellbeing.


We want someone who isn’t afraid to innovate, and with a real focus and investment from senior leaders this position has the potential to be a career highlight.
