We’re looking for a technically strong animal health specialist to join our Central South Island regional team to drive the development of the Animal Health division. The preferred location is Oamaru to Timaru but can be negotiable.

The Role

You’ll become the go-to person for animal health-related queries; using your knowledge of animal health along with some selling skills to make a real difference to the farming community. You’re here to build strong relationships with our customers to find the best animal health solutions to meet their needs.

Another key requirement of the role is providing support and training to our customer-facing staff on the selection and application of our animal health products and services. You’ll share your knowledge, structuring the training your way to up-skill the wider team.

You’ll have the autonomy to create your schedule as you’ll be spending a fair amount of your time moving around your region to discuss farming solutions with customers and to train the team.

About You

You’ll have the confidence and credibility to drive down a shareholder’s driveway to seek out new and leverage existing Animal Health business in the region. Anticipating challenges before they arise, you’ll be adept at finding innovative solutions and working collaboratively. With your excellent communication and relationship-building skills, other team members can succeed under your leadership, and customers trust you.
