Group Managers - BEL Group

The increasing business focus of dairying, an eye on the future, and the qualities of innovation, strategy and planning for success underpin BEL Group’s campaign to find the best Group Managers in the land and attract them to the sunny Hawke’s Bay.  

With two newly formed roles, these are a conscious shift away from traditional operational management and, although you’ll still know your stuff when it comes to cows and grass, the main emphasis of your job will be on coaching and guiding Farm Managers to achieve, keeping an eye on future opportunities and bringing fresh ideas into the business.

Taking their seats at the senior leadership table, these two roles truly reflect the requirements of modern day businesses to have strong, dextrous and capable business leaders at the helm providing guidance, innovation and the smarts that are needed to thrive.

To be in the hunt for one of these roles you’ll have leadership and cows and grass experience, but more importantly you’ll have a wider background to your CV, likely including corporate or large business experience and you’ll already have proven your ability to find, absorb and analyse information and make good decisions.  
You’ll be able to adapt quickly to short term challenges and opportunities, and you’ll have an eye to the future, always asking yourself what’s on or over the horizon that could be an opportunity for us?

In terms of personal qualities, you’ll be in touch with your own capabilities, understand and leverage your personal strengths and be aware of and addressing or mitigating your work-ons.  You’ll understand how to get performance in teams where everyone brings their own skills and experiences; and you’ll be an excellent communicator.

If you’re looking for a senior leadership role in a dynamic and progressive dairy farming business with strong values that support profitable, repeatable, productive performance, then you can’t afford not to consider BEL Group.

With a corporate structure that has worked hard to maintain a family-feel culture and that recognises it’s importance to a thriving local community, this is NZ business at its best.
