February 2, 2016 1:28 am
Twenty four young men will soon leave for New Zealand to work for a kiwi fruit packing and cold storage company – East Pack.
Two company representatives were here last week interviewing potential candidates.
Bay of Islands based East Pack is looking for 24 young Fijian men to work in it’s orchards and packing plant.
East Pack Human Resource Manager Heather Burton says they are mainly focused on people who are stable, reliable and can also work hard for 6 days a week.
‘’We want good reliable people. People that are happy to work in the outdoors. New Zealand is a lot colder than Fiji so they have to brave the elements and come into what is our autumn going into our winter. One of our big criteria is that they stick to the roles that both the government and East Pack has’’.
The twenty four selected will be paid a starting rate of $15 an hour.
They’re expected to leave for New Zealand in March.
