Senior Shepherd

  • Career Development Opportunity

Te Pa Station is a semi-intensive property located in a highly productive farming area just 20 minutes east of Dannevirke. It encompasses 1100ha of hill country running 11,000su and is predominantly run as a breeding operation with a 170ha intensive finishing block to complement the business.

This family owned farm has a strong reputation for supporting the development of their employees with their previous Shepherd winning the Tararua Shepherd of the Year title. They now seek a Senior Shepherd with at least 2-3 years’ experience and a capable team of 3-4 working dogs to work alongside the owner and other employees.

As an integral member of the team, you will be responsible for the day-to-day organisation of stock and any general work as required with further responsibilities being added as your skill-set grows. As your knowledge of the farm develops, you will also have the opportunity to be involved in the decision making process.

There is a warm and tidy three bedroom home available within an active community offering dog trialling and hunting. This role will provide you with the hill country challenges and growth you have been looking for!

Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
