About JOBCORP and Automotive Employment NZ
Automotive Employment NZ is NZ's specialist motor industry recruitment company with historical trading dating back to 1991.

JOBCORP is our parent company. The company places skills in demand across healthcare, education, and engineering trades. Jobcorp also has an immigration division employing licensed immigration advisers.

We are a small but vibrant team with a desire for growth. We have high standards and were finalists in 2022's annual recruitment awards, among other accolades. Benefits include comprehensive wellness initiatives, a wide range of parental support initiatives, personal development support, and extensive other benefits. We enjoy low staff turnover and focus on the needs of our team and are pursing a goal of being New Zealand's best SME employer in our industry.

The Candidate Manager/Recruitment Support role is available due to our treasured incumbent celebrating the pending arrival of her newborn. The incumbent has been undergoing supported training as a Licensed Immigration Adviser (LIA) and will soon be qualified. It is planned that on her return she will move from her existing role to a role of Licensed Immigration Adviser for Jobcorp. In the last 8 years we have promoted every single person who has held this role which has accumulated to 5 promotions during this time as we grow.

The role is advertised as a maternity leave contract from mid-July 2024 to mid-March 2025. Despite the fact it is planned for the incumbent to receive the promotion on her return, the role is a maternity leave contract in the event a slow down would occur in the immigration division i.e. as a safeguard for the incumbent. There is strong potential for this role to become permanent, all the more so given Jobcorp's planned expansion into a temp/flexible division which may result in further new opportunities.

The role
The focus of the role will be to provide administrative support and sourcing of skills across both Automotive Employment NZ and Jobcorp.

  • Increasing efficiencies
  • Structured assignment documentation
  • Project related work
  • Placement and writing of job ads when required
  • Updating information in the applicant tracking system
  • Preparation of resumes
  • Involvement in sales meetings
  • Support of artificial intelligence systems (training provided)
  • Answering phones when needed alongside other staff
  • Regretting unsuccessful applicants
  • Verbal reference checks (mostly automated)
  • Project managing candidate, migrant, and client engagement systems

  • Able to complete tasks more rapidly than your peers yet still with high levels of accuracy and attention to detail
  • Excellent communication skills including good spelling and grammar

  • A graduate diploma or level 7 degree is desired for this role although we may consider applicants with a qualification of NCEA level 3. An NCEA 3 is a minimum requirement
  • Ideally, although not necessary, previous candidate management or administration experience is desired. This said, we recognise many of the skills sought could have been developed in other environments

The working environment and rewards
This is a remote working environment although it would be preferable for you to be located in Auckland due to regular team events.

The team is quick thinking and quick acting. Interactions are fun and the team incredibly supportive and kind. For caregivers and those that need flexibility we can accommodate this, usually without any impact to your pay.

We pride ourselves on how both the company and team support each other. Head over to the website and read the About Us section for full details on staff benefits.

We have regular meet ups during your workday just for the fun of getting out and enjoying each other's company.
