We are looking to build our talent pool of Sales Specialists in our Waikato Farm Source Stores – from Pukekohe to Tokoroa and everywhere in between!

Being part of the talent pool means that while there might not be role available straight away, you’re the first person we call when one comes up.


About Us

We are a proud New Zealand Co-operative built by generations of farming whānau.   We believe nutritious food is essential to sustain people today, and for future generations to thrive, which is why we challenge ourselves to find new ways to bring our dairy goodness to people around the world.  


Farm Source is the face and place of Fonterra with our shareholders and in the local community.  We are locals caring for our farming future.  Our aim is to create goodness on farms, grow empowered people, and strengthen our Co-operative.  Te Mātāpuna Toa Tikitini – our strength is in our collective.


About the Opportunity

The mighty Waikato is home to a number of our Farm Source stores meaning there’s always plenty of room for people eager to join the teams! We’re putting the call out for agricultural enthusiasts with great people skills to register their interest for current and future vacancies across our stores.


As a new addition to our Waikato whanau, you’ll not only provide sound farming product advice to our customers but also get stuck in to everything from merchandising, to on farm order delivery and even sneak in the odd workout lifting some heavy products around the store. You’ll never be bored in this fast-paced role!


What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to truly develop your career with multiple career pathways available throughout the wider business. Interested so far? Keep on reading!


Please note, hours of work will vary across roles with both part-time and full-time opportunities. Stores operate Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm with rostered Saturdays 9am – 12pm.


About You

We’re looking for motivated, people focused individuals who are eager to learn and can bring a positive, can-do approach.


With that in hand, we’d love to see candidates with a strong customer service background and connection to the agricultural industry. However, we’re equally open to candidates looking to make a move straight off farm, or keen customer service stars who are eager to learn all about the industry.


Sound like you, other key things we’re on the lookout for includes:

  • A good level of physical fitness – you’ll have no issues getting your daily step count in!
  • A full, clean drivers’ licence
