Chief Executive

  • Rewarding leadership position in a progressive membership organisation.
  • Ensure the high quality and trust in the standard of members of NZ Certified Builders’ work is promoted and maintained.
  • The National Support Office is based in Tauranga.

New Zealand Certified Builders (NZCB) is looking to appoint a Chief Executive to build on and grow the work to date and ensure its future success and impact.
The role requires a credible senior leader with strategic and commercial expertise and experience in a membership organisation or similar. Strong communication and advocacy skills and the ability to establish trusted relationships with members, consumers and stakeholders are essential. Building sector knowledge/experience is valuable but not essential.
Reporting to the Board of Directors and leading a small, focussed team, the Chief Executive will provide strategic, operational and cultural leadership to ensure that NZCB delivers on its strategic objectives and the ever-growing demand for its services. This will include representing NZCB, and building relationships with members, industry, government agencies, regulatory bodies and key partners, and promoting NZCB as the association of choice for qualified building professionals.
Since its establishment in 1998, NZCB has been working to promote excellence in builders’ standards and building work, and to encourage homeowners to use only qualified builders to protect themselves from unethical practices. NZCB is the only builders’ association in New Zealand with strict minimum entry criteria (being a recognised industry trade qualification in carpentry).  It has an extensive membership of builders throughout New Zealand who proudly carry the NZCB stamp of approval – each builder is trade qualified with a strong history of stability and success.
