With community being one of our four values, our team works hard to recognise the importance of giving back and supporting others whenever possible, particularly in the agriculture communities. We have been fortunate to be able to offer our time to schools and potential future members of the agri-sector by judging the local Ag Days at Ngakuru, Upper Atiamuri and Marotiri Schools and aiding with painting and buildings projects for the schools. Our Principal Consultant, Carla Muller, has been invited regularly to join the panel of judges at the St Paul’s Collegiate Crocodile Pit, where groups of year 13 students pitch their ideas for an innovation they believe could help the agri-sector.
To support the community further, our staff are allocated annual koha funding to contribute towards community work. So far our staff koha’s have been used to support fund raisers for Breast Cancer New Zealand, native tree plantings, supply school sports teams with new uniforms and sponsor local agri-events such as A&P shows and the Reporoa Winter Get Together.
We encourage our stakeholders and clients to get involved with deserving causes too, in 2019 we were thrilled with the turnout at our Charity Quiz night and the funds raised for emergency services, St John Rotorua the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter. In 2022 we asked a handful of our clients to provide their feedback on our services in the Versus Research surveys and in exchange for their time a $100.00 donation was made to a charity of their choice. It was awesome to hear all the feedback and see clients keen to get behind charities such as KidsCan, Meat the Need, Graeme Dingle Foundation, Red Cross Pacific Tsunami Appeal, Hospice, Manawatu Rangiteikei Rural Support Trust and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter to name a few.
Perrin Ag are also proud sponsors of the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards and look forward to having more opportunities to support up and coming dairy professionals in future.
At Perrin Ag, we are committed to providing new graduates with the opportunity to work across a variety of different agribusiness sectors, empowering farmers to be more than they could be by themselves.
As you can tell from our website we operate a very wide and varied portfolio of work, both behind and beyond the farm gate. If you are passionate about agriculture and interested in joining our team we want to hear from you! Please upload your CV and a cover letter, and we will be in touch.
