Consultative Agronomist - Sunraysia, VIC
Whether you are a commercial/r&d/production agronomist or working on a family/corporate farm in the horticulture industry, this is an opportunity to transition into servicing growers holistically without the agchem/fertiliser 'monkey on your back'. It is an opportunity for you to create the change you feel is needed, and contribute to the on-going improvement of the local farming systems.
Who will you work for?
About a decade ago now, an agronomist who had been working for a retail business decided that they were sick of offering a 'fee in a drum' service. This business has since grown to provide consultative agronomy services to grape, tree crop (nuts/citrus/avocados) and vegetable growers across Australia. They are leading the way in agronomy consultancy services, and are driven to offer a supportive, informative and no-nonsense service.
The role itself?
This is an opportunity to join their team based in the Victorian Sunraysia and work alongside one of the best viticulture agronomists going around. Your day to day activities in this role will include:
promoting the companies service offering
advising and supporting growers through agchem and fertiliser plans
constructing informative reports and recommendations
offering technical guidance and assistance direct to growers
liaising with key industry stakeholders to stay up to date with new technologies
collecting, analysing and interpreting data
supporting, maintaining and improving current client relationships
progressing and developing the reach of the business
What kind of person will fit the role?
The perfect person for this role would be someone that has at least 3 years agronomy experience in grapes, fruit, vegetables or tree crops (nuts/citrus). A person that has a proven ability to establish, maintain and develop relationships with their farming clients and across the industry.
How will you be rewarded?
You will be rewarded for your contributions to the business with an attractive salary (proportionate to your experience and skill set), 9.5% superannuation, full use of a company vehicle and access to all home office equipment.
