We have an Experienced Shepherd General role available on our 1000ha Sheep, Beef and Deer property, near Porangahau in Central Hawkes Bay. With 70% rolling country plus some steeper gullies, good facilities and working alongside enthusiastic owner, there’s never a dull moment and the role will include a bit of everything. We use Cloud Farmer to manage our farm records, meaning you will have all farm information at your fingertips and you will be expected to contribute to this daily (it’s really easy to use).
You will need good all-round skills, including a couple of good dogs, hand piece skills, experience fencing and driving a tractor. You will live on one side of the farm and we’re on the other, so you need to enjoy working independently. We value hard work, but we also believe that you should never ask your staff to do something you wouldn’t do yourself. We believe that if you’ve had a big week, that needs to be evened out by having the flexibility to take an afternoon off. We also try and get in a conveyor or crutchers for the bigger jobs.
On offer is a warm 4 bedroom family home with stunning views towards the coast. The local community is well known for being really friendly and 12 minutes away in Porangahau is a dairy, pub, play centre and primary school, plus rugby and tennis clubs amongst other things. If you’ve got a family then this is a great opportunity to put your roots down and make this your home.
As you need dogs, the role is only open to people currently residing in NZ. For further information and to apply contact Leyton King 0274 944 237 or firstname.lastname@example.org
