An unprecedented opportunity to get in on the ground floor and be involved in a business that is making waves in the New Zealand building scene. The set-up of the plant is complete, we have a fabulous team in place and production has been growing for several months. We’ve developed a unique system for assembling the structural core of a home in as little as a day! We’re now taking production to the next level and we need more “Clever” team members to help lead our business to even greater success. About Us Clever Core is New Zealand’s largest purpose-designed, off-site manufacturer of the structural core for residential housing. We work with architects and designers to develop plans that are compatible with our large-scale automated manufacturing process. These plans are used to manufacture fully clad, insulated closed wall panels and floor and roof cassettes, which are then assembled on-site by our assembly team to complete our customer offering. While offsite manufacturing is relatively new to New Zealand, it’s already considered best practice for streamlining the production of homes at scale and pace in the European and North American markets. Why Join Us? We have a vision at Clever Core, and that is to create a positive culture through solid leadership and people managers that focus on bringing the right people into the business. We also want to train and develop our people to have a multi-discipline set of skills. We care about what we do and how we do it and this mindset is top of the list for each person we recruit into the business. About the Role This is a brand new role created to support the establishment and integration of a bill of material (BOM) link tool within our design software. You’ll lead the development of rules and calculations embedded within the BOM link required to produce accurate take-off while ensuring the output file is compatible with our ERP system. Working closely with the design team, you’ll continually review existing resources and help build and maintain an up-to-date product library. You’ll be able to see your work first hand with results easy to access at the plant along with the assembly site and in turn gain further knowledge and understanding of the outputs from the software.  About You We’re looking for a qualified QS/Estimator with experience in full end to end cost management, a good understanding of residential building methods and materials, the ability to read and understand technical drawings and excellent computer skills. More importantly, you’ll be a proactive, self-starter with plenty of initiative who is keen to take ownership of this function. You will enjoy working with our whole team as part of the continuous improvement and seeking feedback as we refine the process.  The successful applicant requires:

  • Degree or Diploma in Quantity Surveying or Construction Management
  • Minimum of 3-5 years’ experience working in NZ residential construction 
  • High level of proficiency with MS Excel and ERP software such as JDE, D365, SAP or similar systems
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to build relationships at all levels
  • High attention to detail
  • Benefits At Clever Core you’ll experience the best of both worlds by joining us – becoming part of an exciting start-up business in a supportive, inclusive team, while also enjoying a variety of benefits as part of the wider Fletcher Building group. While this is a fixed-term role, few other organisations can offer the breadth and scope of career development options that we can, so this opportunity is an ideal platform for high performers to be seen within the group.
