About Farmlands

We are New Zealand's largest farming Co-operative, employing more than 1000 people and found at over 100 sites nationally.  We were formed by farmers for farmers more than 55 years ago, with the aim that everyone should prosper. That desire has grown into one of New Zealand's largest co-operatives, helping rural shareholders nationwide (more than 70,000 of them) get the most from their business, at the fairest possible price.  We currently have a great opportunity for a Salesperson to join our team in Dargaville.

  • Knowledge of timber and bulk yard products would be an advantage
  • Computer savvy - you'll be confident on a computer and be able to learn new systems
  • A forklift licence and DG certification would be an advantage
