About us

AA Finance Limited is a new joint venture offering secured personal and car loans to AA Members and NZ consumers.

The JV's goal is ambitious and clear: Achieve growth from existing products and services and introduce new products which fit under the AA Finance banner.

The role

The role is all about balancing big-picture thinking against commercial reality: understanding target markets, making the numbers work, leveraging networks and resources, engaging with business and industry stakeholders. 

The current business and potential opportunity under the new JV has this product range primed for further expansion. But you will have to treat it like a start-up as we take the engine out of one vehicle and transfer it into another. It will need new systems, a new team and new running gear.

Your background

Reporting to the JV Board you will need to be strategic but hands-on; possess energy, drive, clear vision and knowledge and be talented at leading people to deliver success. 

As an experienced commercial general manager you won't have any problem creating and implementing short/long term strategies and plans, achieving profit and budget targets, influencing peers and other stakeholders.

We will want you to keep the business a step ahead of the market, so product innovation and a clear marketing strategy is key! For this you will have to call on your proven marketing, project and product management experience within the banking/insurance industry.

Your business degree and 7-10 years' commercial/general management experience, ideally in the finance sector, have provided solid credentials for you to progress your senior executive career path in a complex business structure.
