Situation vacant

As a community service, from time to time people send me job offers, and this is an opportunity sent in yesterday. My reader comments, “I know that there have been some WOBH readers/commenters in the past who have been ‘between jobs’ so thought I’d let them have first bite at it if it is OK with you. The boss is a bloody good bloke.”


This is a diverse, primarily office-based role in a busy West Auckland aluminium joinery factory. The role will have charge of client communications, health and safety compliance and training (both within the factory and at installation sites) while maintaining positive communication flows between the factory, office and job sites.  


  • Communicate between all parties with confidence and calmness
  • Prioritise and deliver tasks efficiently
  • Review and implement processes to improve systems
  • Enforce and maintain H&S compliance


  • No formal qualifications are required but evidence of learning (formally or on the job) is ideal
  • Capable with technology, especially learning new systems
  • Friendly, honest communications capability is essential
  • Previous skill in estimating is an advantage
  • Potential growth into project management for the right candidate
  • Experience in V6 is a bonus
  • Enthusiasm and positivity is essential
  • Knowledgeable in both MS Word and Excel
  • Full, clean driving license
  • People AND systems orientation

There is a “no dickheads” rule there.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
