Trainee Cloacal Chick Sexers

Contract | Manufacturing | New Plymouth / North Taranaki District

Aviagen is the world’s leading poultry breeding company. Aviagen New Zealand is an important part of this global organisation and has hatchery operations located at Constance Street, New Plymouth where we are now offering two trainee Cloacal Chick Sexing opportunities. As a trainee no previous experience is required as you will undertake an intensive 6 month training program to learn the basics in this very specialised and important part of the operation, if after the 6 months you are successful then you will progress through to the next stages requiring even greater focus to achieve the levels of competence demanded of a competent Sexer. The role requires good eyesight, a high degree of manual dexterity, a natural ability to pay attention to detail and maintain extremely high levels of concentration of up to 8 hours. If you can demonstrate these skills, once qualified (which is determined by reviewing % accuracy and reaching speed levels of 1,000+ chicks per hour) high levels of remuneration are achievable although pay rates are dependant on the number of chicks sexed per session. Working days and hours are dependant on the hatch schedule and this will change on a week to week basis. Typically though this does require early starts from around 6am although the working day is generally finished by 3pm. The poultry breeding industry has very strict bio-security and animal welfare standards so all employees are restricted from keeping pet birds, poultry, pigs or other intensive livestock.
