Looking for a career change?


Our people are the key to our continued success

Premier Beehive employs over 250 staff, most of whom are busy crafting bacons, hams, sausages and shaved meats in our Carterton factory in the heart of the Wairarapa. We are one of the largest employers in the Wairarapa region and have always prided ourselves on combining the talent of our truly skilled and dedicated team with the best available meat cuts, ingredients and processing technology. We also have a distribution centre in Palmerston North where we have a dedicated warehousing team.


When we take on people to join the Premier Beehive team, we’re looking for those with a positive attitude who are willing and able to undertake physical work in our raw meat and pork product manufacturing plant. In a nutshell we want people with the three A’s – Attendance, Attitude and Aptitude.


We care about creating a workplace where our team members feel respected and valued. We want to provide people who show potential with opportunities to grow their own career, whether it’s here with us or by providing you with marketable skills you can use in your next job.

You might have some experience in food production or not. But don’t worry, we provide on-the-job training for every role. What’s important is that you have a ‘can do’ attitude and a strong work ethic, a willingness to commit to work, and the ability to follow instructions and company procedures.

We offer a variety of shift times, part-time, full-time opportunities and overtime is on offer in some roles. Ongoing on-the-job training, potential to transfer to permanent, long-term roles and consistent work in an essential service business.

The jobs we have vary. But whatever the role, the right attitude is everything!
