Staff: QuickStart

The QuickStart recruitment kit is a simple starting point for farmers when employing staff. It provides step-by-step processes for the first 90 days of the employment period, making employing staff easier and less time-consuming.

Used on its own or in conjunction with other DairyNZ tools such as the Compliance Toolkit and HR Toolkit, QuickStart simplifies recruitment and orientation, and improves your chances of getting it right. Having the right people in place will help improve the performance and productivity of your farming business.


QuickStart Recruitment kits are now available for the following farm roles:

The kit has all the necessary documents and guidelines for the entire process, including:

  • recruitment paperwork and guidelines
  • a detailed job description
  • interview guidelines
  • orientation checklists, including a property report
  • skills assessment
  • orientation training plans for the first 90 days.

This makes it simple to have a robust, efficient recruitment and orientation system. The clear envelope it comes with is a great place to store your QuickStart documents and other material relating to your new employee.
