The successful candidate will ideally be based at either the Pukeuri or Smithfield plant, with travel required between each site.  Applicants who wish to be based at the Christchurch office may also apply, with regular travel to both plants required.  This varied role offers competitive remuneration and the opportunity to grow your HR career with future promotion and development opportunities.   It represents an exciting opportunity to help facilitate the strategic change and growth required for one of New Zealand’s largest companies.
