Experience: Limited Experience Necessary
Contact: 0272924380

Looking for a NZ dairy farming experience? We are located next to the beautiful Elephant Rocks in North Otago, two hours drive to the adventure playgrounds of Wanaka and Queenstown and 25 minutes to NZs coolest town Oamaru! We require some capable people to join our team and assist in the day to day jobs required of running our three dairy farms with first class facilities and machinery. Responsibilities will include milking, feeding cows, calf rearing, general farm maintenance and gardening. We offer quality four bedroom accomodation in the close village of Duntroon, 5 minutes travel from the farms, a flexible time off roster, competitive hourly rate and a positive work environment.

The job starts from around 1 July and can have a negotiable finish time but ideally we would like you until at least December so we can give the rest of the guys plenty of help over the busy season. Some previous experience working on a farm or with animals would be an advantage but not a prerequisite, we can also make jobs to suit with building or carpentry experience. Most importantly you need to be able to listen, communicate english clearly, be a quick learner and work positively in a team. You will require a drivers licence and your own transport to get around the countryside on your time off.

If this sounds like you please apply with your covering letter and CV
