Are you looking for a change of scenery? Become a Fruit Maturity Lab Team Member with Mr Apple.  

This is a fixed term role for approximately 4 months

What you’ll be doing

How would you like to work alongside a small but dedicated team, ensuring that Mr Apple continues to lead the way in the testing and monitoring of fruit maturity?

Your day-to-day tasks will include:

  • Using various equipment to assess fruit maturity, to give orchards the green light to pick.
  • Sampling, testing and assessing Trial samples – this may involve some picking on the orchard.
  • Assisting with Food Safety testing in the packhouses.

What you’ll bring:

  • Be a team player, able to follow instructions and work under pressure.
  • Experience working with fruit is beneficial but not essential – this doesn’t have to have been with apples.
  • Be available to work 6 days at the peak of the season (Saturdays)
  • Be physically fit
  • Have the right to work in New Zealand.

What we offer

  • Meet and work with extraordinary people
  • Rewarding role with room to learn, grow and impact change
  • Work with cutting edge technology

If you feel this might be the opportunity for you, please apply now!

Who we are

Mr Apple is New Zealand’s largest apple grower, packer, and exporter, with orchards, packhouses and coolstores across Hawke’s Bay.  It may sound strange, but we do love apples – and the experts that take our apples from tree to crunch. Our family is a mixed bunch – we hire diverse teams, and all backgrounds, experiences and perspectives are welcome here.
