Milking It hears that one complainant contacted the cooperative asking why it wasn’t monitoring the Farm Source job site, noting that there was a surge in non-farming jobs advertised on a site surely intended for farmers.
The co-op admits there were a number of non-farming jobs posted, but says they have all now been taken down. “We are investigating how this is happening to ensure we prevent it from continuing to occur,” says a Fonterra statement.
The Farm Source platform is only accessible by Fonterra shareholders, raising the question, how did these non-farming jobs get posted in the first place. With the industry looking to fill a huge labour shortage, the only jobs this site should display are dairy jobs.
