We are looking to employ someone to assist with lambing duties from 1st - 20 September.
The role can fit the level of experience but we do ask that only those with farming experience apply.
Key responsibilities include:
- Feeding orphan lambs from a bottle
- Mothering orphan lambs onto new Mothers (which includes assisting the lamb to feed off the ewe)
- Checking stock and reporting issues to the Farm Owner
- Shifting stock breaks (if experience allows)
Patience and communication are the most important skills required for this position. Other required attributes include honesty, reliability and a genuine interest in the welfare of the animals.
The hours of work would be in the morning and late afternoon / evenings with a break during the middle of the day.
Fully furnished Accommodation is available if required.
Potentially this role could turn into a full time role if the successful applicant was looking for permanent employment.
Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
