Machinery Operator | 2020/21 Pre-Season Update
We’ve had to rethink our approach to pre-season hiring, as COVID-19 has thrown a real ‘spanner in the works’.
For the past 12 years, HanzonJobs has travelled to Ireland and the UK, meeting experienced agricultural machinery operators for the upcoming season. However, border closures have made this impossible for 2020, causing serious concern amongst agricultural contractors throughout New Zealand.
So, what does all this mean for you, as someone in Ireland or the UK, interested in working in NZ for the upcoming season?
