    HR Manager - Rotorua

Reference no: 8HR1009
Posted: 10 Apr 2018
Salary: Negotiable
Location: Rotorua, New Zealand
Duration: Permanent - Full-time
Start Date: Negotiable

Maxwell Farms is a significant farming business that includes 12 dairy farms and one drystock farm located across Hawkes Bay, Taupo & Tokoroa.  The time is right for the business to bring on their first full-time dedicated HR Manager to ensure they are at the top of their game in the ‘people’ space.

With 67 FTEs and a number of casual support staff, this is a role that is wide in scope and focused on moving the business towards excellence in its people management.

With a flat structure and influence from the top table to on-farm operations, we’re looking for a generalist with wide ranging experience and energy to burn.  You’ll take responsibility for all things ‘people’ with a focus on:

  • Annual HR planning
  • Talent management
  • Development of company wide employment policies
  • Payroll integrity 

To hit the ground running in this start up role you will:

  • Be experienced in operational HR and ready to take on ‘whole of business’ responsibility
  • Have proven skills in utilising your people skills to move a business through change quickly
  • Know how to manage and influence up and down in a relatively flat team structure
  • Be engaging, results focused, and have excellence at the top of your agenda everyday

It goes without saying that your professional competence will mean you will be able to get buy-in from both senior management and staff quickly by putting in place simple systems that are logical, fit for purpose and future proof.

An understanding of dairy business cycles would be an advantage, but your HR experience, attitude and integrity are ultimately much more important to our clients.

This is an exciting opportunity for a smart operator with three to four years’ experience in an HR role to step up to HR management and really make their mark.
