Hundreds of Kiwis find a new home at Domino’s But More Are Needed

On the 15th April, Domino’s launched a recruitment drive as the company looked to hire 1,000 team members. This action was in response to the expected increase in deliveries once the country had moved to Alert Level 3. Over 3000 people applied in the hope of becoming part of the Domino’s family many of whom were hired. For some new team members their new job helped them put food on the table while waiting to go back to their previous role, for others it has been the start of what will become a rewarding career.

On the 15th April, Domino’s launched a recruitment drive as the company looked to hire 1,000 team members. This action was in response to the expected increase in deliveries once the country had moved to Alert Level 3. Over 3000 people applied in the hope of becoming part of the Domino’s family many of whom were hired. For some new team members their new job helped them put food on the table while waiting to go back to their previous role, for others it has been the start of what will become a rewarding career.

 

As the country returns to its new normal Domino’s is once again asking Kiwi’s who are in need of a job to visit the Domino’s job website and apply for the roles that are available in their area.

 

Domino’s New Zealand General Manager Cameron Toomey said the Company was not surprised at the number of applications the company received given the unemployment situation and was thankful that the company was in the position to give new team members some security.

 

“Seeing the number of businesses and individuals that have been negatively impacted by Covid-19 we appreciate that it is a privilege for Domino’s to be in a position to be able to add to our workforce.

 

“We’ve had such a range of applicants from air crew and hospitality workers to sales executives and those looking for their first job. Hundreds have already started their new roles and we have more to come,” said Toomey.

 

“During their first two weeks on the job new team members can expect to go through an intensive training programme, including our new health and safety procedures that were developed due to COVID-19, before safely preparing and delivering food to our communities and front-line workers.

 

“At a time when many Kiwis are losing their jobs, we are happy to be able to give these successful candidates the reassurance that not only do they have a new job but a possible new career. At Domino’s we like to promote from within and we are one of the few companies where you can start as a delivery driver or member of our in-store team and move through the ranks to become a local store owner or even the CEO,” Mr Toomey said.

 

Corporate Regional Manager Alex Whale did just that. Starting in 2013 as a delivery driver during high school, she has moved around the country with Domino’s working in various roles and gaining valuable experience. A year ago, she moved to Auckland to take up a new role as Corporate Regional Manager for Domino’s. She now manages 3 stores, developing teams and training new franchisees.

 

“I love working at Domino’s because every day is different. My current role challenges me in all aspects of store operations, people management and development,” says Whale.

 

“Who wouldn’t want a job where you get to meet new people everyday and have fun in a team environment where everyone is working towards a common goal.”
