Getting Kiwis into Farm Roles

Federated Farmers NZ are encouraging farmers to hire NZ employees - new to the agri-sector, impacted by Covid-19 or job seekers to long-term employment.

Federated Farmers is working with the Ministry of Social Development to get more Kiwis into work on the land.
 
Federated Farmers is going the extra mile providing employment contracts and have teamed up with Kiwi owned and operated Kaiwaka Clothing to provide gear to those new to the farming sector.
Their stocks are limited so it's first-in first-served.

After working through the process outlined below, the cost of the Employment contract will be refunded and the Farm-Wear Starter Kit will be sent to you for your new employee.

An order form will be provided as part of this process - on completion the order will be forwarded to our teammates at Kaiwaka who will prepare and dispatch your Kit.
