The successful candidate will be expected to take responsibility for the day-to-day production on the farm, with the focus on ensuring good quality and production of nuts per ha. He will manage subordinates, maintain an effective organisational structure, and furthermore, manage production resources, which includes amongst others, water, energy, nutrition, pest and disease, irrigation as well as field data. The repairs and maintenance on the farm will also be his responsibility. The incumbent must be able to work independently and accurately.
The ideal candidate must be in possession of an Agricultural qualification coupled with at least 5 years’ experience in macadamia production. Successful managerial experience on a farm is a prerequisite, and experience in skills transfer or extension, would be an added advantage.
