Service and Panel Operations Manager (PNG Based)


Major automotive group with sites throughout PNG requires a Service Manager in their Port Moresby branch Our client is a multi-franchised vehicle distributor based in Port Moresby, with additional dealerships spread throughout PNG. They are presently seeking an Operations Manager for their primary site in Lae. The computer system in use at this dealership is Reynolds & Reynolds and the position reports to the Branch Manager / National Service Manager.

In this role, you will supervise a team of national staff, which requires patience and the ability to be aware of all the activities presently underway. Prior experience as a Service or Fixed Operations Manager in a franchised dealership is essential for this role. You must be a hands-on manager, someone who focuses on people, over figures.

Figures are still important but require more of a macro profitability approach, rather than a micro, efficiency-focused track.

Lae is home for around 100,000 citizens and is the largest cargo port, and the industrial hub of PNG.

Lae is situated at the start of the Highlands Highway, which is the main land highway in PNG.

A generous remuneration package based on a retainer of around $145,000 AUD will be discussed.

In addition, expatriate benefits are also provided, which include free accommodation, free return airfares to point of recruitment, relocation assistance, company vehicle, 5 weeks annual leave, full medical insurance, and club memberships.
