Agri Manager - Putaruru/Tokoroa Area - Fixed-Term at Livestock Improvement Corporation

About Us

At LIC we value the NZ farming industry and are proud of our successful contribution to this sector. We'll do whatever it takes to support and grow our farmer community - our customers are key to how we do business. Our vision is to improve the prosperity and the productivity of our farmers; and we want great people to join us on our journey.
This role is part of the NZ Markets group which operates as the channel to our customers and customer voice. It will suit someone who is ideally based in the South Waikato area.
LIC is seeking a sales professional to join its dynamic, solutions-focused team, which puts the customer at the centre of everything LIC does. You'll be able to draw on significant resource while maintaining a good deal of freedom to provide solutions to customers on a case-by-case basis.
This is an 8-month fixed-term role to cover parental leave.

About You

As the face of LIC on-farm, you'll display strong empathy toward farmers, complemented by a 'can-do 'attitude. Reporting to the Senior Agri Manager, you'll be comfortable talking the language of the dairy farmer, and you'll understand the issues and challenges they face, both day-to-day, and long-term.
You'll be aware of the importance of herd and cow quality, have a sound knowledge of dairy cow genetics and how this goes hand-in-hand with profitability - and you'll have little problem conveying this concept to farmers while keeping abreast of unique situation they face.
As a sales professional, you'll have the necessary drive, ambition, and determination to meet or exceed sales targets.
To be successful at LIC means you'll thrive in a fast-paced, busy environment and you'll be adaptable to change. You'll also enjoy working within a team of dedicated individuals, and be able to deliver a professional approach when working with a wide array of customers.
