Head of Farming and Forestry

Whakatupu rawa, whakatupu tangata
Grow the assets to grow the people

At Tainui Group Holdings (TGH), kaitiaki of Waikato-Tainui commercial interests,
we focus on growing puutea, tuuranga mahi and whenua (profit, jobs and land) for the people of Waikato-Tainui and our region for generations to come.

Our Head of Farming and Forestry oversees a significant proportion of TGH
assets, leading financial and operational excellence for these significant business assets and delivering outcomes in line with our values of mahitahi, kaitiakitanga, Manaakitanga and pono me te tika.

Is this the role for you? We think this role will interest you if:

  • these values resonate with you
  • you’re a proven leader and a strategic operator who isn’t afraid to get out on the farm
  • your next career move requirements include challenge, and the opportunity to enhance, expand and develop land assets to add value to the balance sheet
If this is starting to sound interesting, then you need to take a much closer look at this role.

As you’d expect at this level of appointment, there are a diverse range of
responsibilities that include leading operational and commercial excellence within
the land holding portfolio and driving growth initiatives including acquisition, land
use and development strategies. Making strong commercial decisions will be the
hallmark of our successful applicant, and alongside this they will have the planning skills and mana to influence throughout the business.

With your direct reporting line being the GM Finance and Investments, there’s no
need to read between the lines to understand the focus and importance of this
important leadership role for the business.

The kind of person who will do this role well will have an engaging personality
with advanced interpersonal skills, a combination of commercial and financial
skills, coupled with a deep understanding of the farming and forestry sector. It goes without saying that attention to people, their development and welfare underpin all TGH leadership roles along with living the values of iwi in a commercially viable business.

He rite kia koe? (sound like you?)
