Retail Management Graduate Programme - Operations

Half Moon Bay, Auckland

Our Reference:GP01



Retail straddles the core of business management - marketing, buying, logistics, property management, sales, staff training and development, customer acquisition and engagement, pricing, strategy and more.  And Burnsco, being an omni channel retailer with a national chain, is a prime example of how multi-faceted and multi-skilled contemporary retail management is.  As a business, we’re large enough to invest in best-in-class equipment and systems; but small enough to be a nimble organisation without tiers of bureaucracy, to be somewhere where talent is recognised and developed and  where you get plenty of contact with Senior Management from Day 1.

For this Operations role you’ll be kept busy as part of a team of 3 selecting, installing and managing hardware and software for our operations, working on the logistics of shipping our international stock orders, handling relationships with third party service providers (eg freight forwarders, telecommunications providers, security firms, insurers), dealing with property management issues, recording and tracking assets, and above all ensuring that our busy stores are kept fully operational.  You’ll be providing friendly and proactive service from your base in Head Office at Half Moon Bay Marina, in East Auckland.
