Hello, my name is David Catota. I am an Ecuadorian citizen and I am looking for work in the New Zealand pork industry.
I am an agricultural and Livestock Engineer with a mention in Livestock Production. I have a Master’s Degree in Agricultural Science, Livestock Systems and Environment. In 2018, I completed a 1-year internship at Smithfield Foods Hog Division. I was in the research team, but also worked in the breeding, farrowing, nursery and finishing facilities as well.
I am currently looking for opportunities to work in the New Zealand pork industry. I am open to all possibilities. Breeding is where I perform best, however I know how to AI, head-check, watering and feeding sow treatments, and the handling of animals in general.
I do not have any problem living in a rural location, and I do not have a preference for location. I am an honest, hard-working, dynamic and proactive person who adapts quickly to change and can work under pressure.
I am available to work immediately. According to visa arrangements I can travel sponsored by ALTROPICO interchanges foundation.
Work wanted – October to November 2019
Dear New Zealand Pork Industry Board. My name is Mariël Benus and I am looking to learn more about the New Zealand pork industry.
I am currently living in Vroomshoop in the Netherlands, and recently graduated from the Aeres Hodeschool Donten where I majored in intensive livestock farming (with a focus on pig farming management and poultry farming management).
In August 2017, I completed an internship at Myora Farm in Australia. I learnt that there are still a lot of differences between pig farming in the Netherlands and in other countries – which is why I want to visit New Zealand.
I am planning to come to New Zealand in October 2019 to work on a pig farm and travel. I have already graduated and have completed internships, so I can’t do another internship – however, I can work in a piggery.
To contact me and to see my CV please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
South Island work wanted
Hello, I am Simon Le Hir, I am a french agricultural worker.
I hope to come in New Zealand South Island in Autumn 2019 with a working holiday visa. I realized 2 WHV in Australia and Canada in the past, to work on farms (dairy and crops farm). My family was pig farmer, and I am currently employed in a pork farm(600 sows farrowing to finishing), but I want to discover free range pork in New Zealand.
So I am looking for farm jobs for several months in South Island. The purpose of this job, would be to exchange on the free range pork production, and also discover the New Zealand culture. But I know I am a special profile, because at first I will have no accommodations or car. So I hope a family can welcome me on his farm, it’s a very good exchange for everyone.
Thank you to answer me by email, Simon Le Hir email@example.com.
