Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers has an immediate opening for an Equipment Manager at our Grande Prairie, AB site. This role is ideal for an experienced, ‘hands-on’ person with a background in heavy construction or agricultural equipment. No previous auction experience is needed for this role, and lots of training will be provided.

The Opportunity:

Our Equipment Managers manage, monitor, maintain and enforce the auction site’s Detailed Equipment Information (DEI) Program standards and procedures.

In this role, you'll:
  • Assume full accountability for DEI program quality control (e.g. equipment documentation, photos, descriptions, etc).
  • Oversee the auction site’s customer service levels as it pertains to the DEI program.
  • Monitor key performance indicators and generate detailed reports.
  • Recommend best practices to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Manage and coach the DEI team to their full potential by creating a culture of achievement.
  • Assist the DEI team with their work during peak periods.
  • Oversee development of auction advertising materials (e.g. brochures).
  • Assist the Sales team with appraisals and write-ups between peak periods.
  • Assist the Training department with developing and delivering related training / certification programs to employees.
  • Promote a culture where the health and safety of our employees and customers is top priority for all.
  • Perform other related duties as assigned.
  • Actively support the RB Unreserved Commitment to Safety: to send everyone home, every day, the way they came to work, by taking personal responsibility for your safety and safety of your team, co-workers and customers.
Here’s what you bring:
  • 3+ years in equipment management (inspections, inventory and appraisals) and/or inventory control management, preferably in the auction or heavy equipment business.
  • 3+ years supervising and leading a team. Proven strong leadership and coaching skills are required for this role.
  • A degree or diploma in Business or a related field is preferred.
  • Proficient using computers, MS Office Suite products (Word, Excel) and digital cameras.

  • Proven ability to collaborate effectively with Sales and Operational teams, as well as customers. You must have a strong customer service orientation.
  • You must be process-oriented, hands-on and ready to roll up your sleeves to succeed in this role.
  • Excellent organizational skills -- you’re the type that leaves no detail unattended.
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills. Demonstrated ability to identify issues, develop solutions and drive resolution.
  • Capable of meeting strict deadlines in a high-pressure, ever-changing environment. You must also have the ability to adapt to shifting priorities, demands and timelines.
  • Able to work independently, but also collaboratively in a team-oriented environment. You thrive working as part of a team and pitch in whenever needed.
This job will require you to:
  • Maintain a valid driver's license, a clean driving abstract, and a passport (or passport eligibility).
  • Work indoors and outdoors year-round, and climb on and off large equipment and trucks.
  • As an event-driven company, we need you to be available for regular overtime, including weekend hours, at 6 onsite auction sales. You can expect to work extra hours for 2 weeks prior to each sale, during each sale, and for 1 week after each sale.
