We’ve got hundreds of jobs and would love to place you into one of them
Have you got what it takes?
No experience needed – just the right attitude!
On farms, in food production facilities, factories and horticultural businesses – farmers and manufacturing operations need people NOW!
Who’s this for?
If you’ve got a ‘give it a go’ attitude and a positive, hard-working ethos – we want to hear from you.
Anyone who has a genuine interest in learning more about changing to a career in the primary industries. It can be messy, it can be tiring but no two days are ever the same. It requires passion and commitment and in return it’s fun, flexible, uber-rewarding and full of opportunity.
Everybody has skills and knowledge that can be transferred from one job to the next. We want to utilise your abilities and build on them so you can be productive in the agricultural industry from day one.
We’re helping New Zealand get back on its feet by retraining people who want to work. Our 13-day intensive retraining programme gives you the foundation skills and knowledge to become “farm ready”.
When you graduate from the rural retraining programme, we’ll help place you into a job in the primary production sector, either on a farm or in a business which supports the agricultural industry.
*Disclaimer: while we cannot guarantee you employment, we have an extensive database of businesses ready to employ people NOW.
The course provides a small amount of relevant theory-based learning in an inclusive environment, but the majority of the time is hands-on and practical and will give you an overview of many aspects of rural life enabling you to move into a farm-related job with confidence. There is a lot of knowledge that will come your way, but the academic aspect is simple and the focus is more about ‘doing’.
The experienced team here at Agri Training are delivering the training, but we’ve pulled in our partners – AgStaff and New Zealand Dairy Careers. Together we have a combined history of over 30 years in the rural sector; in training and recruitment across the primary industries. You couldn’t be in better hands!
