We trade as Tubman Heating in the upper North Island and Devham Services in the lower North Island, through long established facilities in Auckland’s Glenfield and Wellington’s Gracefield. We have a number of equipment agencies and distributorships.

We’re looking for someone to join our Auckland team who can use today’s business tools and methods to help us sell, design, install and commission safe, efficient, effective solutions that we and our customers are proud of. The role suits a motivated, self-sufficient and experienced design/sales engineer; able to work with customers, colleagues, consultants and contractors to provide innovative solutions from concept through to installation and commissioning. It is supported by an Estimator.

The role is multi-disciplined – requiring the ability to secure and develop long term relationships with both new and existing customers and to utilise and promote THL's expertise and specialist technologies.

THL has a long history of successful project delivery based on engineering excellence and innovative solutions. The successful applicant will be able to access the IP developed and will be encouraged to add their individual mark.

  • An understanding of the standards and legislation we work within
  • A willingness and ability to contribute to our Senior Management Team

Being a small company there will inevitably be times when other duties may be requested that do not meet the above criteria, but it is expected that these will be agreed to and undertaken in good faith.

The style of person that we think would fit the team is one who is:

  • A leader, someone who can quickly earn the respect of our customers and our team

  • Effective and efficient
  • Knowledgeable of general engineering equipment (mechanical and process control); and able to develop complete installation packages
  • Ideally knowledgeable about boilers, burners, hot water, hot oil and steam

The role would suit someone who values daily variety and challenge; someone who is motivated by solving problems; who wants to provide the best for every client.
