Coromandel & Whangaroa

12:00pm, 15 January 2021


Moana New Zealand’s oysters are farmed in the pristine tidal waters of Aotearoa and our Pacific oysters perfectly capture the freshness and vitality of the waters they are harvested from.

Outdoor lifestyle

If you’d rather be out in the fresh air than sitting in an office, aquaculture could be a good place to start your working life. Like other types of farming, the field requires a lot of practical know-how, and what better place to get it, than working for a premium oyster farm business at Moana NZ.

No day is the same. You might find yourself checking stock on farms, removing old infrastructure to make way for cutting edge, new flip farm system or assembling oyster baskets and undertaking general farm, yard or shed duties.

With the opportunity to learn from industry pioneers and be part of a close-knit team this is an exciting time to consider a change in career or the chance to work in the rapidly growing aquaculture sector.

Make your mark

As an expanding industry worldwide, aquaculture offers plenty of opportunities, with unlimited potential for growth and the chance to live in some of Aotearoa’s best regions – Coromandel and Northland.

Moana is leading the way by integrating new ways of working and cutting-edge technology into our operations, to support future growth ambitions and the increasing worldwide demand for our premium oysters.

Key to our growth is the transformation of our farms with the adoption of a new and innovative oyster growing system called flip farm. To support this exciting change, we have multiple fixed term (1 year) Farm Worker opportunities in the Coromandel and Whangaroa.
