Event Details

Hawke’s Bay’s apple industry needs to fill more than 100 new permanent skilled jobs a year for the next seven years and none of them are as apple pickers.

EIT said it has responded to the industry’s call for more professional management skills within its workforce. Working with industry leaders, the school of primary industries has reviewed its offering for 2019 to ensure it will address the future skills needs.

New Zealand Apples and Pears Incorporated has said more than a million new trees are being planted in New Zealand each year — the bulk of them in Hawke’s Bay.

The increased planting will require investment in infrastructure along with a skilled workforce to handle everything from production and packing to storage and export.
