A fantastic opportunity has become available for a retail HR advisor to join our fast paced, energetic human resources team. This position is located at our support office in Palmerston North, however your focus will be on supporting our 18 nationwide retail branches which employ over 300 team members. 

You may have recently graduated with your degree in Human Resource Management, or you may have a year or two under your belt and be looking to take the next step in your HR career.  What we are really looking for is that right person who is passionate about providing exceptional support to our business, and has the right attributes to grow into a brilliant HR professional.
