An exciting opportunity is available to join our GB Whitianga family!

We are Guthrie Bowron Whitianga – trusted specialists selling Paint, Wallpaper, Curtains, Blinds and Flooring including tiles. We are an award winning, locally owned GB Store with a stunning showroom, a great team and lots of energy and vision.

We place a high focus on building a strong team culture & we aim to create the right feel for our team as well as our customers.  Many of our team have been with us for years and finding the right ‘fit’ with the team is key for both parties.

We support our community and each other and one of the best bits of what we do is helping our clients to achieve amazing results with their decorating projects large or small.


  • You will have the opportunity to consult in homes or on building sites in amazing locations on the upper Coromandel Peninsula as well as from our showroom, advising your clients on their window furnishing choices.
  • You will be involved in all aspects of the job from initial brief to completion including design & colour choices, measuring, quoting, ordering and co-ordination of installation.
  • You will also carry out sales of home décor items like rugs, cushions, mirrors etc sold in store.


  • You will be joining two other consultants in our window furnishings team and enjoy teamwork – bouncing ideas and supporting each other.
  • Many of our clients require flooring, paint and wallpaper and you collaborate with our wider team of sixteen to put the overall look together.


  • Previous experience in an Interior Design or Window Furnishings industry and in sales is of recognised value, but not completely essential.
  • We will train a person with the right attitude and a natural ability with colour, design & interiors.
  • Our first focus is for motivated team players who can provide exceptional honest service, who enjoys sales, is detailed, is passionate about interiors and is up for a learning challenge.


  • We offer job stability, job training, paid overtime, flexibility around time off, generous staff discounts on all the products that we sell.
  • We are proud of our inclusive culture and offer a genuine fun & friendly work environment and tight team culture.
  • Enjoy the coastal area & local community lifestyle of Whitianga while at the same time working with an award winning business which is top in it’s field.

If you enjoy a challenge, colour & design, providing great service for your clients, working with a fun team and think you’d be a great fit with us then tell us why.
Sure we want to know a bit about your employment history & references but more important to us is who you are as a person.

  • Please also share with us a bit about your life, your goals, the things you are passionate about and what your connection is to Whitianga.
