We're a large and diverse organisation that is 100% owned by more than 68,000 kiwi farmers and with a national footprint of over 80 retail stores, it's fair to say we have a presence in every region and in every major town in New Zealand.
2018 has marked a new era for our co-operative - we are part way through a leading edge organisation wide technology and cultural transformation and in 2019 that will place us even further as the forefront of our industry for years to come.
To commence in early 2019, we are seeking an experienced and business savvy retail Area Manager to lead and inspire our team across Otago and Southland, ensuring they are highly engaged and well equipped to excel in the Farmlands of the future.

A demonstrated history in developing and leading high performing teams is a must for this role, as is the ability to think both strategically, tactically and innovatively.
You'll have strong business acumen, an eye for identifying and consolidating new business opportunities and you will never be satisfied with anything less than the best.
