      The Meat Industry Association supports?Opportunity Grows Here?a programme managed by the Ministry for Primary Industries to attract job seekers and career changers into jobs and training in the primary industries.

      What jobs are there in the red meat sector?

      With more than 25,000 workers in meat processing, there is a vast array of jobs available, ranging from processing, engineering, trades, sales and marketing or human resources, to distribution, animal welfare and many scientific and environmental roles.

      The industry offers entry level roles for those without any formal qualifications or experience as well as for those who have undertaken Primary ITO training or tertiary and post-graduate study. Staff can progress over time from entry level to more senior and management roles.

      The industry provides both seasonal work and stable work across the year.? It is a resilient industry that provides long-term employment.

      Meat process workers do a variety of tasks beyond slaughter and boning, and are relatively well paid - an experienced lead hand earns more, on average, than a primary school teacher or registered nurse with the same years of experience.

      The sector is also one of the biggest trainers of New Zealand workers, with approximately 6,000 people undergoing NZQA accredited courses annually.

      What training is available?

      Almost all tasks carried out in a modern processing plant require a high degree of skill, but many people entering the industry for the first time are untrained and relatively unskilled.

      The meat industry is one of the biggest trainers in New Zealand and the training system is extremely effective at putting new workers onto career pathways and training them. There is a very strong system in place of 'on plant training'. This equips employees for the roles they are working in and leads directly to a variety of New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) approved qualifications.

      More than 6,000 workers annually are enrolled in a variety of courses, ranging from NZQA levels 2 to 5.

      Apprenticeships in meat processing are also offered. Men and women undergo an intensive programme of on-plant training and supervision for two years, leading to an apprenticeship. This apprenticeship not only deals with the technical aspects of the job, but also is intended to develop a future generation of trainers and supervisors. Ongoing personal development opportunities are available across every facet of the sector.

      The Meat Industry Association also offers scholarships to university and polytechnic students pursuing courses of study relevant to the sector. The industry will pay a portion of their annual study costs, and also provide paid vacation/part-time employment so that scholars are introduced to the industry - and potentially begin a future career in meat processing and exporting.
