Pamu - Taupo - Central Plateau
This is your chance to join New Zealand’s largest farming organisation and help with our business transformation. We want customers to know they can trust the quality of our products and farming and Kiwis to be proud of what we do. Landcorp’s Pamu farms are about farming smart and with care.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our company as a Beef Finishing Specialist on Rangitaiki Station. Rangitaiki has a large scale and intensive cattle finishing system, farming bulls and steers. This role involves managing your own block, and further developing your intensive pasture and animal management skills. You will be responsible for pasture management, live weight production and maintenance of your own block. Our Beef Finishing Specialists all run their own Farmax files under the guidance of an external consultant with regular coaching sessions to enhance personal development. During quieter times in your block, there are also opportunities to work alongside team members across other enterprises to widen your skill set.
This role can be adapted to suit inexperienced staff with a motivation to learn, or experienced staff who can take on more responsibility. This role is ideal for those wanting to develop themselves and their careers, but would also suit those who would like to take a step back and immerse themselves in everyday farming.
You will bring:
- Outstanding communication skills and enjoy being part of a team
- Interest in technical and intensive farming, focused on high production
- High focus on pasture and stock management
- Commitment to high standards of quality and safety
- Have a ‘can do’ and ‘team orientated’ attitude

A local primary school is close by and a school bus at the end of the road for children attending Rangitaiki School, and secondary schools in Taupo. We offer an attractive salary with additional benefits, as well as ongoing training and personal development to help you reach your personal and career goals.
