Graduate Programme


Our purpose at Perrin Ag is to enable farmers to be more than they could be by themselves.

Our farmers and growers are navigating their way through a lot of change, and we want to make sure they have access to the best people to tackle these challenges.

Our primary industries need fresh new talent to help them thrive, so we are committed to taking on a new graduate consultant every 12 months.

Applications open on Monday 12 June and close on Monday 10 July.

As a graduate recruit you will:

  • Get hands-on farm consultancy experience with clients.
  • Enjoy a variety of work across industry sectors and the entire value chain.
  • Be mentored and supported by people whose expertise is sought after across the industry.
  • Work autonomously and take ownership of projects knowing you have our full trust and support.
  • Feel confident sharing your ideas and opinions because your input is valued and considered.
  • Be part of a team advising Government on some of the largest agricultural projects in the country.
