Tractor Driver / General Hand


About the role
We are a 5,000 hectare station in the Central North Island with longstanding
family shareholders. We run sheep, beef and deer breeding and finishing and
are looking for a Tractor Driver/General Hand to work as part of our team. The
shareholders and directors are committed to a long-term view of the farm and
are progressively working towards more regenerative agricultural practices.

You will be involved in all aspects of the farm. You’ll be an instrumental part of a
team that takes great care of the animals so that we can optimise the profitability and sustainability of the entire property.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Excellent tractor operation skills and experience.
  • Experience with spray and drilling equipment – and appreciation of the care required in their use.
  • Maintenance skills on machinery, including light welding skills.
  • General farm work fence repairs, firewood, grading roads, spreading metal, feeding out, maintaining and developing water schemes.
  • A first-class attitude to health and safety and animal welfare.
  • Able to work weekends, public holidays and longer hours during seasonal demand.
  • Hold a clean driver’s licence.
  • Have good communication skills.
  • Can work independently.
  • A proven track record of working well in a team environment.
  • Can operate farm machinery.
Benefits and perks:
The opportunity to have a fun, challenging and fulfilling career while we work at
building a leading large-scale multi-livestock farm. You’ll be part of a great team
and will be expected to work positively with other staff.

The salary is competitive, and a 3-bedroom house is provided as part of the
package. A school bus stops at the farm gate.

Applicants will require the legal right to work in New Zealand to be considered
for this role.

Applicants for this position should have New Zealand residency or a valid New
Zealand work visa.
