Aspiring Farm Manager
Situated 25 minutes from Wanganui
We are excited to bring to the market this new role for an aspiring
Farm Manager located in an idyllic coastal community 25 minutes
from Wanganui. Continued growth in the off-farm business model
of procuring and marketing high quality lamb has increased the
demand on the Owner’s time, driving the decision to lift the current
job specification to a management level.
This stunning inter-generational property is a credit to the family’s
vision and their continuous improvement philosophy. The property
boasts a mixed enterprise model of sheep, beef, forestry and maize
on 1005ha of flat sand country. This systemised, intensive operation
requires a Manager to demonstrate their skills across the sheep
and beef operation of 3200 terminal sired ewes and 350 cows.
There is an emphasis on quality covering all aspects of this
farming operation including stockmanship, fencing and asset
management. The appointee will have a high level of personal
pride and presentation and will demonstrate strong relationship
skills as in time a Shepherd/General will be hired to complement
the operations. This is a very unique opportunity within a multidimensional
platform where you can showcase your initiative,
operational excellence, build a team and gain exposure to a grass-to-plate
Success will be achieved by an aligned passion for the production
of quality, forward planning and the ability to communicate
proactively along with attention to detail. The Manager needs to
have a genuine want to, rather than have to, mentality towards
reporting and be prepared to communicate openly with the Owners
who are often offshore on promotional duties.
The position comes with a quaint three bedroom house with a
full complement of enclosed farm yard sheds and gardens. Great
schooling is nearby and the ocean is at your doorstep.
Your career will be enhanced by this opportunity, apply now and
enjoy the ride!
