Recovery Coordinator

Fixed Term or secondment to December 2020

 

About the role

In May 2018 a joint Government/Industry programme was established to eradicate the cattle disease Mycoplasma bovis from New Zealand, reduce the impact of the disease and the eradication programme, and leave New Zealand's biosecurity system stronger. The Government, Dairy NZ, and Beef and Lamb have committed to $800 million over 10 years to the eradication programme. An M.bovis directorate has been created to manage the programme over the next two years.

 

The Role Recovery Coordinator works directly with affected farmers and the case managers assigned to each farm to understand their farm systems and help plan for managing the disease and managing the farm. Recovery Coordinators help avoid animal welfare problems and help the farm plan through the eradication steps if required. Recovery Coordinators help ensure that the appropriate operational costs are paid for by the eradication programme.

 

This role works closely with all functions in the M. bovis programme, particularly the operations and recovery teams in the regional headquarters. You will need to be able to understand farm systems and engage directly with farmers. You will also need an understanding of how to manage the disease, the financial implications, and how to support the welfare of affected farmers, families and their workers.

 

At MPI we are open to requests for flexible working on hiring. Please talk to us at interview about the flexibility you need and we will explore what's possible for the role.
