This position has been filled

Cates were one of the first independent grain and seed companies in Mid Canterbury and are proud to be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year.  We specialise in the production and marketing of clover, cereals, grasses, pulses and brassicas for both domestic and international markets.

Due to continued growth and expansion an exciting opportunity has arisen in our company for a position providing administrative support to our senior management team.  This position, based at our head office in Ashburton, will involve working with compliance and regulatory documentation and systems as well as general administration tasks.

Key requirements for this role are:

  • Great communication skills, attention to detail and a high level of computer literacy
  • Well organised and have a proven work ethic
  • Previous experience in an administration and/or compliance role and knowledge of the agricultural industry would be beneficial, but not necessary

This role is a permanent part-time position offering flexible hours (by negotiation), and a competitive remuneration package.

If you are interested in joining a friendly and supportive team in a long-established local business, then we would love to hear from you!
