Personal Summary

  • Looking for a job over summer, that may have the opportunity to become full time. Have spent this year studying at Lincoln University, and am highly passionate about the agriculture industry.

I am equally as interested about the dairy sector as I am for the sheep and beef, but would also be interested in working for a company involved in the agriculture industry. I am hard working, reliable and honest.

After studying this year,  I’ve gained an interest in the management and maintenance of pastures and soils so would love to gain some more knowledge here.

I spent last summer working on a sheep and beef farm and have done some casual work on a dairy farm over calving.

I would love the opportunity to grow my skills and knowledge enabling me to work my way up the ranks in this industry.

Would like to stay in the Manawatu / Horowhenua region but open to elsewhere
