Katrina Dwyer, Account Manager for Australia and New Zealand said that will offer assistance to anyone in Australia and New Zealand that is looking for work in the agribusiness sector.  It will also assist anyone in the sector looking to change jobs because of the drought.
“Currently boasting over one million page hits per month to its North American site, will now connect Australian and New Zealand agribusiness job seekers with agribusiness employers across both countries and from around the globe in the agriculture, food, natural resources and biotechnology sectors,” Ms Dwyer said.
“It is a very timely launch here in Australia and will assist people who have been forced to consider a change of job because of the current conditions.
“With Australia experiencing drought conditions, we believe can occupy an important place in ensuring as many people on the land can access jobs online that will keep them on the land wherever possible.
“With going live in Australia and New Zealand for the first time, agribusinesses will not only have access to a local and global talent pool of candidates, but also dedicated account managers with experience in writing job advertisements for the online environment.

For almost a decade in the United States and Canada, has been the leading recruitment website for agribusiness.  Each month more than 1,000 new roles are posted to the site across the whole spectrum of agribusiness – production, sales and marketing, finance, R&D, natural resource management and general management.
“A recent survey of HR professionals revealed that niche employment sites, like provide the best talent and are the number one source for attracting passive job seekers. On this basis, one of the other strengths of for agribusinesses and job seekers is that it provides an opportunity for much greater exposure”, she said.
Managing Director of Rimfire Resources Mr Mick Hay said that Rimfire saw as a way to bring a world class, ‘agribusiness specific’ job board to the Australian and New Zealand markets.
“Attracting top talent is a global issue for agribusiness, not just a local one.  So along with being able to extend the online reach of agribusiness job seekers, will help companies attract talent from the global market”, Mr Hay said.
