Packaging Team Leader

Location: Auckland
Function: Supply Chain
Sub-Function: Supply Chain - Production
Type of Contract: Permanent


At DB/Heineken, you’ll be part of one of the largest beer and cider brewing companies in the world. With more than 250 brands in 70 countries, we’re behind many Kiwis’ favourite brews – probably even yours. So things just got very interesting for your career.


The Packaging Team Leader is a people-focussed role looking after the team who help create and deliver our products to customers all over New Zealand.  Meeting production requirements and quality standards in a safe working environment is their focus, and you’ll ensure this happens in a way that supports a positive and constructive culture, being a coach and mentor who supports the team to be their best.  


This role requires your background as an experienced people manager who has the practical understanding of appropriate safety practices in a manufacturing, warehousing or packaging environment, a nurturing style that empowers and inspires the team to take ownership, and encourages the sharing of knowledge.  You’ll be the conduit between the packaging crew and our leadership team, so your ability to communicate effectively, influence, get buy-in and have the tough conversations is important.  You’re also someone who enjoys achieving results through others, and has a drive for continuous improvement, using reports and data to make informed decisions (a good understanding of Excel will be useful). 


Opportunities don’t get much better than this. You’ll join a fun environment, with enthusiastic people who care about a good drop.  We value innovation and individuality – it’s a place where you can feel free to be yourself, and be confident to share your ideas about how we can be even better. And sustainability’s a key part of how we do business, because we know that a company of our size has both the influence and the responsibility to consider our impact.


If that sounds good to you, there’s more.  Career progression opportunities at DB/Heineken are limitless and we reward our team with some great benefits and people-focused initiatives including:


  • Flexible work options.
  • Health, life and income protection insurances.
  • Competitive remuneration including a base salary and annual bonus.
  • Professional development and training including exceptional leadership development.
  • Diverse projects and the ability to work with multi-disciplinary co-workers.
  • A supportive, high performing team environment.
  • ‘Enjoyment of Life’ leave.
  • Monthly product allowance – yes, free beer!
  • Free car parking.

At DB, we brew the joy of true togetherness to inspire a better world.  A big part of that means brewing better people with the heart of our company in our four values:

  • Passion for consumers and customers
  • Care for people and planet
  • Enjoyment of life
  • Courage to dream and pioneer

We’re continuing our journey to becoming an inclusive workplace as we know that diverse views make great brews, and we support flexible working that meets the needs of our people and the business.


DB Breweries is an equal opportunity employer (EOE) and we’re committed to providing a working environment that embraces and values diversity and inclusion.  If you have any support or access requirements, we encourage you to advise us at the time of application to assist you through the recruitment process.
