Assistant Manager

  • Quality Home & Surrounds – King Country

With stunning hill country views, our client’s 820ha grazing business is located on the outskirts of Te Kuiti. The property operates as a dairy support block running mainly dairy heifers and some sheep and beef. Its owners place great value on producing high quality stock for their clients.

We seek an Assistant Manager to support the Farm Manager in both the operational and technical aspects of the business. Key components of this role will include assisting with stock management, movements and animal health, record keeping and general farming duties. You must have excellent animal husbandry and seek proactive approaches to problems and have previous experience with pasture management. You will also require three to four working dogs for stock movements.

Fundamental to your success in this role will be your attention to detail, positive attitude and willingness to learn and determination to achieve production gains. As you may be required to manage the property in the Farm Manager’s absence and liaise with clients at times, excellent people management and good communication skills are critical. 

On offer is a very attractive, quality four bedroom home, with two living areas, a tennis court and quality surrounds. Primary and secondary schooling is available nearby in either Te Kuiti or PioPio with the bus just 1km down the road. 

Applications close 5pm Friday, 5th October 2018.
