Assistant Manager - Matamata

Reference no: 8HR1001
Posted: 23 Mar 2018
Salary: Negotiable
Location: Matamata, New Zealand
Duration: Permanent - Full-time
Start Date: 1 June 2018
  • Passionate about registered cows?
  • Like working closely with the farm owner?
  • Looking for a nice family home close to good schools?

Our clients are based near Matamata and breed and show their Holstein Friesian and Jersey cows.  They are passionate about breeding good quality cows to produce good quality milk and having a high performing farm.

With 300 cows in the herd this assistant manager role is ideal for someone who is looking for a role where they can ‘look after things’ in the owners absence and is already experienced in pasture and stock management.  If you have a partner who is interested in some casual work then so much the better.

Needless to say working with this owner means you’ll need a passion for cows, genetics and feeding animals for maximum performance.  

On offer is a good quality housing and the opportunity to learn from an owner who is not only a talented farmer but is also committed to developing their people as much as their cows.
