Due to business expansion the owners of Kohunui Station are excited to offer this Trainee Block Manager position 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.

As the Trainee Block Manager on the Arndts/Titoki Block you will be supporting the business owner who manages this block in all day-to-day tasks from stock management to general tasks.
