Zespri is launching a new graduate recruitment scheme to attract top young talent into the kiwifruit industry.
Two positions are available to recent graduates, offering 18 months working across Zespri’s business, including six months offshore, says Zespri global sourcing partner Bernadette Ryan-Hopkins.
Applications are welcome from graduates from all disciplines. Skills in languages, horticulture, marketing, IT and finance are particularly relevant but Bernadette says having the right attitude is the most important of all.
“The successful applicants will also have a senior executive mentor for their time at Zespri – an excellent opportunity to get advice from someone who’s worked their way through the business,” says Bernadette.
Applications are open until August 25. Applicants must be New Zealand residents and have graduated within the last 12 months. For more details and to apply online, visit www.zespri.com
