Head of Fulfilment and Logistics, Noel Leeming and Torpedo7
Part of every day, is about finding opportunities to help Fulfilment and Logistics deliver a better experience for our valued customers and our stores. What I do the rest of each day changes all the time – there is no ‘normal’ day.
This is my first role in retail, and I’ve been at it for just over two months. My favourite part so far is being able to work with a variety of teams, to come to an optimal outcome that will excite and delight our customers. Before returning to New Zealand, I worked in four different countries which gave me experience in working with a diverse group of people.
The changing face of retail
The pace of change in retail these days is very exciting. Technology enables undreamed-of possibilities in the shopping experience, and continually keeps you on your toes. We work every day to ensure we’re not just planning for the future, but exceeding on delivery today.
The Warehouse Group (TWG) is forward-thinking, and our leadership team are continually striving for the company and the teams to operate better. Not only that, it’s a sustainable organisation that is well respected by all Kiwis.
Why join us?
TWG has a way of working which ensures a collaborative and respectful environment. It’s a great place, that truly cares about its people, customers and the wider community – you feel as if you are making a difference in the lives of Kiwis.
In my role, I help New Zealand flourish by supporting the brands under my responsibility (Noel Leeming and Torpedo7) to compete with overseas-owned competitors. That way we build these businesses and create more jobs for Kiwis.
Retail can be a truly exciting career, and TWG offers training for advancement, and also great team member discounts across its brands – so we can purchase great products at an even lower price. My advice to applicants is to challenge yourself not to think outside the box, but as if there is no box. Limiting your thinking, limits your potential for optimal solutions that propel you forward.
