General Manager – EcoZip Adventures
EcoZip Adventures is an award-winning tourism business located on beautiful Waiheke Island. Due to growth in the business, with a new South Island location due to open later this year, we are now looking for a self-motivated and results-driven General Manager to direct and manage our company’s business activities at our Waiheke Island location. As part of a small, but strong, management team, our Waiheke GM will play a pivotal role in helping to develop and implement the future strategy for the business.
Reporting to the company’s managing director and board of directors, duties for the General Manager will include allocating budget resources, formulating policies, coordinating business operations, monitoring and motivating staff, managing operational costs, ensuring good customer service, improving administration processes, engaging with vendors, hiring and training employees, identifying business opportunities and monitoring financial activities. As a business with a primary focus on safety, the General Manager will be responsible for ensuring our compliance with the Health & Safety at Work (Adventure Tourism) Regulations.
Your entrepreneurial spirit and vision will assist our us in maintaining relationships with clients, generating new business, improving productivity, further enhancing customer satisfaction, ensuring sustainability and meeting business objectives.
The successful candidate for this role should possess excellent communication skills, superior knowledge of business functions in the tourism, leisure or travel industries, budgeting and finance skills and strong leadership qualities. The General Manager should account for all business activities, support staff development, enhance efficiency, drive sales and improve revenue, maintain relationships with clients, enhance the company’s image, and meet overall growth objectives.

The EcoZip Adventures Ethos
Our business is founded on a series of simple principles to which any General Manager will be required to wholly subscribe.
While Waiheke- and Auckland-based, this role will require regular domestic and occasional international travel.
This is an opportunity to join a growing company made up, if you read our Trip Advisor reviews, of safety-obsessed customer-service fanatics. We’re a small, fun team, with plans to be much bigger (but no less fun). If you want to help shape the future of a company, are not afraid of hard work, are not seeking an ivory tower, we want to hear from you.
