Apprentice Farm Manager

Reference: #8HR32103


Yep, you’re reading this right….our client is looking for a promising, enthusiastic and leadership ready team member to commit to a three-year Farm Manager  apprenticeship arrangement that will see you leave with not only the qualifications but the experience to take on an advanced farm management role.

Waka Dairies is committed to a leadership pathway that includes formal training as well as solid on-job experience. In year one you’ll effectively be working at junior farm manager level, cementing your skills and knowledge. Over the 3 years you will  be studying at Level 5 on the NZQA framework via PITO and Massey University.

A starting hourly rate of $31 per hour moving to $37 per hour by year three and being paid for every hour you work. This is a career that rewards Mahi and  Tekohanga.

This pathway is for people who lead, who are responsible, someone who is interested and invested. Someone who…

  • Preferably knows grass.
  • Someone who is ready to start NZQA L5 qualifications.
  • Someone who already has the leadership qualities to run a focused and professional team.

As you can tell, Waka Dairies are an innovative employer and they’re passionate about creating careers for their team, keeping a talent pipeline alive for the industry and creating opportunities for a new crop of dairy sector participants to experience and thrive with dairying and ag-sector opportunities. They’ve just employed an apprentice herd manager to prove their point.

This is a serious, business-focused farming environment. High performance and highly informed: 650 cows, 54 bale rotary with adjoining feed-pad, smart tech in the shed, a complete meal mixing system, two compost cow shelters and modern machinery. There’s a lot going on, there’s a lot to learn and there’s a lot of up-side!

So, if you’re ready for farm management, want to round out your experience in a smart business with complexity and opportunity, then take a look at this role today…you can’t afford to miss this one!
