stocking rates and sheep to cattle ratio are set on the best fit for
managing public land without compromising the park resources
and wider objectives.

The Farming Operations Manager – North will be responsible for

breeding and trading. As the Farming Operations Manager you will
lead by example and champion the Auckland Council brand with a
strong desire to create a culture of excellence, providing a pathway
for those in the business to grow and add value.

This position requires exceptional all-round farming skills with a
team of 2-3 working dogs, an excellent understanding of supply
and demand, the ability to utilise feed and convert pasture to meat
and wool. Your demonstrated experience in leading teams, farm
technology, managing people and resources will be highly valued.
This is a role where you will have the platform and support to
express your full range of skills, apply your trade and develop your
brand into the future.

Auckland Council stands for excellent environmental, social and
farming outcomes and has committed a specialised business unit
to ensure the farming strategy is executed. Apply your operational
farming expertise to this farming business where quality land,
livestock, infrastructure and the best people are central to its goals.
