Career Opportunities In Horticulture Industry

Opening the gateway to hundreds of new career and education opportunities in New Zealand’s booming apple and pear industry is under way with the appointment of a regional career co-ordinator in Hawke’s Bay.

Emma Boase has hit the ground running working with New Zealand Apples & Pears Incorporated (NZAPI) and Massey University to connect horticultural students with local exporters and growers.

She’s one of five being appointed in the horticultural sector throughout the country in a $1.1 million Provincial Growth Fund investment, announced recently by Minister of Regional Economic Development Shane Jones.
