TWG consists of four core retail brands – The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Noel Leeming and Torpedo7. We have 270+ retail stores, online stores as well as distribution and fulfilment centres and employ over 12,000 people across New Zealand.
The North Island Distribution Centre, based in Wiri, is the largest of its kind. With over 300 full time staff members on a normal day dealing with our various brands and processes, this critical function requires an experienced leader able to handle the complexity of such a logistical operation.

We need a strong and inspirational communicator who can articulate the big picture easily and lead and coordinate any transformation and process changes through a solid team of departmental managers.
You must be able to plan, prioritise and think on your feet, be commercially astute and take health and safety seriously.
What’s in it for you?
