Work type:

  • Lead, Mentor, Manage & Grow the Team
  • Progressive, Food Exporting Co-operative
  • Exciting, Senior Level, Southland Based Role

Alliance Group is the ONLY 100% locally owned co-operative red meat company in NZ and it is quietly going about completely overhauling the way it does business.  Its shareholder base of 5000 farmers ensures that it is New Zealand’s – and indeed the world’s – largest exporter of sheep meat, as well as a significant contributor to beef and venison exports.  The Executive Leadership Team is well down the path of redefining the way the company interacts with its clients and shareholders.  Being a co-operative, Alliance’s farmer shareholders are at the centre of everything they do.

The Regional Manager Livestock leads and manages a team of 12 Representatives who service shareholder suppliers in the Southland region.  This role is not about being a subject-matter expert on meat; it is about being a true team leader!  The Regional Manager will lead, mentor, manage and grow their team.  There is a component of helping the team to think and do business differently.  If you currently lead a small team, have an empathy with agriculture, are the type of person who wants to ‘actually make a difference’ and enjoy the philosophies of a true co-operative, then this role should interest you.

Reporting directly to the GM Livestock and Shareholder Services and a key member of the Livestock Management Team, this exciting role has direct visibility into Alliance’s Executive Leadership Team.  The requirement for the Regional Manager to be Southland based presents a number of specific locational options.  Although you could work effectively from a home office, it would be an advantage to spend regular time in the Invercargill Head Office.

Invercargill and the wider Southland region offer a number of lifestyle choices.  A wide range of recreational activities are available locally or within short travelling distance. 

Confidential enquiries can be directed to Alan Head or Jane Cotter at EQI Global on +64 3 377 7793 or email  Applications close on Friday, 15 September 2017. 

All applications will be acknowledged by email.
