Shepherd - Full or Half Day - Orakonui Farm - Taupo

Waikato- Central Plateau - Taupo, New Zealand /
Dairy Operations – Dairy /
Casual
We’re looking for a shepherd to come work with us on our beautiful farm in Taupo.  You could be looking for traditional full-time work, or potentially be interested in a part-time schedule.  If you’ve got the skills and a strong, positive team orientation, we’ll make it work.

This is a drive in / drive out so would be suitable to anyone located in the Central Plateau / Taupo area.

Orakonui has 2,980 ha and is a dairy support / beef finishing property located just 10 minutes from Taupo.  One thing that makes us a great property work on is the variety – with lambs, bulls, dairy heifers, beef steers & wintering cows. 

Ideally you'll have well-controlled dogs, strong communication skills and a respect for our robust Health & Safety environment. We believe in growing and developing our staff so an interest in progression would be great.

We’ve got a team here who performs well together and we’re looking for a Shepherd who can keep that positive, high performing vibe going. 
Get in touch with Joan Barendsen at barendsenj@landcorp.co.nz before 9th September 2020 with any questions.
