Feedback from Hanzon workers


“Don’t bring a whole load of clothes. All you need are the essentials and buy the rest as it is cheaper. Don’t bring work jeans, waste of space, you will never use them... . The open spaces, the quiet roads, big wide roads, friendly people… . Bigger area farms... . Big dairy herds, average over 600 and up to 1200 in the area where I worked. Adam Pike, Devon England

Hanzon is looking for contractors & dairy farmers

“They’ve been brilliant. I’ve been 100% happy with them. They all had experience in machinery and just hopped straight into it; no training was needed. They all knew what they were doing.” — Brian Hughes, Waimatua, Invercargill. Feedback from Hanzon Contractors
Brian Hughes is a farmer and contractor based in Waimatua, Invercargill. He does silage, baleage, direct drilling and full cultivation. He has six permanent staff but needs 15 during the season. He employed four Englishmen this season. Three were through Hanzon Jobs and the other arrived independently. They arrived in October and left at the end of March. They got on well with everyone and I’ve offered them all jobs next year. If Richard guarantees six guys of the same calibre next year we’ll employ them.

Hanzon provides drivers and dairy workers to contractors and dairy farmers in NZ. The workers recruited by Hanzon come mainly from the UK and Ireland but also Canada, France, USA and Germany.

In 2008 Richard recruited 35 young farm workers from the UK and Ireland, all of whom completed full work placements during the summer season in NZ. For 2009, through Hanzon Jobs Richard is looking at recruiting up to 100 workers.
