The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and AGMARDT (The Agricultural and Marketing Research and Development Trust) have introduced a new award - The Primary Industries Good Employer Awards 2018.

The award is to recognise and celebrate employers in the primary sector who are doing a great job - providing great places for people to work and grow their careers.

They're looking for primary sector employers or businesses who are:

  • providing great working conditions
  • giving their staff opportunities for upskilling and promotion
  • demonstrating exceptionally good employment practice.

Nominees may be individuals, businesses, or organisations that are actively involved in the primary industries or provide support services to the primary industries - eg. veterinary clinics!

Find more information on the Ministry for Primary Industries website.

Nominations for 2018 are due by 10 August.
