We’re here for the benefit of our nation’s most vital sector - to help drive dairy success through ongoing sustainability, profitability and innovation. And by helping us achieve this, you’re set to enjoy the kind of career satisfaction and reward you’ve always hoped you would.
Keeping Kiwi farmers ahead of the curve is an ongoing challenge. And it’s a challenge we can’t succeed at without great people at our side - people passionate about achievement, and about driving New Zealand dairy forward.
That’s why we’re committed to providing the best career opportunities we can, from excellent training and development, to a culture rich in support and respect, we think we’ve got the right ingredients for you to thrive with us.
At DairyNZ we’re focussed on making our dairy farmers successful. But it’s not all about cows and grass around here. Not everyone here has a Bachelor of Bovine something-or-other.
What we do all have is passion, commitment to the success of the team and a great team spirit. The success of DairyNZ is the result of passionate, proud people working towards a common goal and making a difference for the industry, and for each other, every day.
Without the likes of talented finance, HR, brand, admin and ICT experts, the work we do to support the dairy industry simply wouldn’t be possible. So even if you thought you weren’t cut out to work in the dairy industry, we think you’ll be surprised just how well you’ll fit in.
Of course, we’re very keen to talk to all farming types too. So if you’ve got an agricultural-related qualification, a rural background (or ideally both), we’re likely to have opportunities that’ll be right up your alley.
Our technical and scientific team are at the very heart of the solutions that enable New Zealand to lead the way in the global dairy industry. They’re leaders in their field - leaders in the thinking and innovation that’s allowing us to continually break new ground in dairy advancement. It is their technical prowess and novel techniques that are shaping the way for successful farming now, and for years to come.
Providing great science and solutions is vitally important to helping ensure the success of our farmers. Which is why as part of this team, you’ll enjoy the resources, investment and support required to make great things happen.
If ‘real’ applied science is your forte, this is the ideal environment for you. From feed conversion efficiency to advancements in disease control and animal breeding, the work you do will have tangible outputs that ultimately help to further farming productivity, confidence and success.
So if you’re ready to combine your knowledge with ours to build dairy knowledge for the future, it’s time we got started.
