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!
We are living in a time of unique opportunity. Opportunity to redefine what we do, give greater meaning to our lives and discover more fulfilling careers.
Agriculture is the backbone of New Zealand’s economy and this industry always shines in an economic crisis.
COVID-19 has hit some New Zealand sectors hard and resulted in thousands of job losses. The primary industry has the opposite problem; there are hundreds of people needed to fill a diverse range of roles.
On farms, in food production facilities, factories and horticultural businesses – farmers and manufacturing operations need people NOW!
Everyone has skills and knowledge which is transferable from one job to the next. We want to give you the skills and knowledge to 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 entire course is hands-on, practical and highly relevant 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’.
We’ve taken the best of traditional farming methods, combined it with best practice, to deliver practical and relevant primary industries training.
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!
