Kaimahi Huangakai (Operations Worker)


Reference: 3790531

  • Do you have a keen passion for all things agriculture / horticulture? Have a green thumb?
  • Do you enjoy working in a whānau, tikanga based environment?
  • Love avo's and kiwifruit? Live and breathe them!

We are a whānau-owned operation located in Te Puna whose main activities include horticultural orcharding and residential housing rentals. We have a great Kiwifruit and Avocado Orchard that is in need of some love and nurturing.

We have a rare opportunity for a permanent Kaimahi Huangakai (Operations Worker) who will be based at our Orchard in Te Puna in Tauranga Moana. You will help us maximise returns to our beneficial shareholders. As you become part of our community, you will need to be capable of and enjoy working autonomously, use your exemplary self-management skills and initiative to ensure tasks are completed on time, and it goes without saying, you will also relish working in a whānau, tikanga based environment!

You will be a self-starter, you don't need people telling you what to do, you just do it. You will be looking after all aspects of growing fruit (Avocado's and Kiwi's), from pruning through to harvesting. You will be taking care of the maintenance of the machinery and orchard equipment, condition reporting of the Papakainga housing. You will also be liaising with Trust contractors, tenants and other groups within our community and provide progress reporting to and regular communication with Trustees.

You will have a minimum of 2+ years in a similar role, from agriculture, horticulture, agronomy, or perhaps you work as a machine operator / packhouse operator within a similar production environment, and are used to working with perishable foods.

This is a physically demanding role, so you must be comfortable working on your feet and outside in the elements. Couple this with a Full Class 1 Driver's License, then you are perfect for us and we can't wait to hear from you!
