Alliance Group is New Zealand’s only major red meat co-operative, owned and supplied by skilled and passionate Kiwi farmers. We’re committed to being a global leader in procuring, processing and marketing the world’s best quality red meat products. By putting farmers at the heart of everything we do, we understand what’s important to our people throughout the entire supply chain.

The Co-op procurement growth strategy is centred on adding extra value to our farmer suppliers. We now offer many new benefits both directly and through our business partners. These include access to information around international market trends, yield improvement advice, financial offerings, video imaging analysis and other technologically advanced tools.

As a part of the Alliance team, we can offer you an opportunity to work in a technology-focused, top end finished product environment, where you can add real value to your farmer clients. Because Alliance is 100% NZ owned, the co-op direction is transparent, providing genuine job security.

To support the growth of Alliance’s business, we now wish to appoint a Southland based Cattle Specialist to join our Livestock team. The purpose of this role is to provide overall management of Alliance’s Prime and Manufacturing cattle category to achieve agreed regional volumes. You will build strong relationships with suppliers, plus work closely with our cattle farmer key account clients. Strategic planning, procurement and leading your peers to deliver on regional plans will be your focus.

Competencies required to be successful include:
• An eye for cattle and a good understanding of livestock farming systems
• Some experience with category or product management – any ag industry
• Ability to influence peers in a positive and productive manner

If becoming a senior member of the Alliance team is your goal, this role will be a great stepping-stone in your career path.

To discuss this role in confidence, please phone Deb Francis on 021 224 5000. Otherwise, send your CV with covering letter via by Thursday 31 May.
