    Flexible working and a dairy farming career - it is possible!

Reference no: 8HR1361
Posted: 2 Mar 2021
Salary: Negotiable
Location: Waikato, New Zealand
Duration: Various
Start Date: 1 June 2021


Lots of our clients are changing the way they think about their teams and manage rosters to make flexible working a reality on dairy farms….so this could be your opportunity to step into a dairy farming career without the need to commit to ‘on-farm’ living and a working week that feels like it might never let up!


Using a four-hour shift system, you can choose whether you want to work four or eight hours a day, and you can vary this to suit your needs.  Imagine, school holidays you could work less, term time you could work more, you could work around your uni studies, you could plan your work around fishing (if you trust the weather forecast!!)….the possibilities are endless.  


Equally, you can look at what shifts are available where and have some choice about which farm you work on.  Building your dairy farming career whilst still having a life outside work just got a whole lot easier...


We're thrilled to work with forward thinking and progressive employers who recognise the need to make this work and are committed to up-skilling teams so they can enjoy their job and think about next steps if a career in dairying is what they want.


We have clients throughout the greater Waikato who are keen to know about people in their area who might be interested in working arrangements that include early, middle and late daytime shifts and flexibility to choose a fortnight in advance the hours you want to work.  You’ll be a proper employee and you’ll agree a guaranteed number of hours….


What do you think?


Give us a call today to have a preliminary conversation.  As a minimum you’ll need to be drug free and committed to working safely.  So much the better if you’ve experienced work outside or on farm before, but many of our clients are keen to train people with a genuine interest in the dairy industry.
