Block Manager Career Opportunities!
- Kohunui Station – Aria
Due to business expansion the owners of Kohunui Station are excited to offer two new Block Manager positions to the market.
Kohunui have established an excellent business model made up of 5 contiguous blocks ranging in size of between 500-800ha in the Aria, King Country district and a 1500ha breeding block called Taurangi, 10km away. This highly successful business runs a sheep and beef breeding/finishing operation with a particular focus on quality genetics (Angus/Hereford and Romdale ewes). The blocks are farmed on their strengths with fit for purpose systems built around each of them.
Taurangi Block Manager (Ref# 6072): With the recent addition of a neighbouring block this property now requires a second Block Manager to take responsibility for the 700ha front block, ranging from easy to steeper hill country. Focused on the day-to-day running of this breeding block the appointee will have the ability to drive lambing and calving performance and deliver strong results for the property. The contour of this property will provide a good challenge for a strong team of working dogs.
Pukehoiho Block Manager (Ref# 6073): Pukehoiho is a 500ha block providing the landscape for you to demonstrate your skills in production, feed management and target growth rates. This block is integral to growing out replacements following lambing and calving. The appointee will be dedicated and proficient with stock and will have established skills in managing quality feed.
A can-do attitude, the ability to get on well with others and old fashioned stockmanship are essential attributes required for both roles along with a genuine desire to be on the land and contribute to making a difference.
Excellent remuneration and accommodation is on offer, along with schooling options nearby.
Applications close 5pm Monday, 28th January 2019.
