We’re after a dynamic and positive team player who thrives on variety, can get ‘up to speed’ quickly and will work with the whole team to deliver high quality work that sets us apart from the rest. 

We are a dedicated, friendly ‘lot’ who actively support and welcome a new team member ‘into the fold’. You can expect us to be proud of our skills, possess a ‘can-do’ attitude, as well as an essential sense of humour and passion for all things ‘agricultural’. Sound like you? 

Requirements for the role:

  • ‘Top notch’ copy writing and social media ‘know how’
  • Excellent communication skills and focused listening
  • Ability and passion to learn and understand how our products and systems work
  • Personal drive and initiative
  • A natural problem solver
  • Excellent relationship builder with a good sense of fun
