Services for you, the employers

Now more than ever, the ability to tap into sourcing people with the right skills and experience can make or break a company. And that’s how Rural People can fuel your farm’s success.

Don't take our word for it, here's what our clients have to say about us.


"Rural People take the stress out of finding great employees for our farm team. I prefer to deal with Rural People because I am dealing directly with the owner of the business, Paula. Their success is our success."

Jude Letham
Letham Farms Ltd

"I first met Paula when she visited our farm a year ago. I really liked that she came here to meet me and to sit down with me and get a good understanding of the business, how we operate and the kind of people we were looking to employ. Since then Paula and the team at Rural People have helped us with finding permanent staff and backpackers to help out during calving and all of our visa work. They make the process very easy for us and the permanent staff they have found last year are still here. We now have a good team"

James Burnby, Clinton

"Employing Rural People as our recruitment agent has improved our business and family life immeasurably. When staff leave automatically the work load increases. Trying to find the right person under those conditions is exponentially more difficult. Where once we floundered on our own often aimlessly searching, we now no longer have to. Add to this, dealing with immigration and you have the recipe for stress and frustration. It was a daunting and demoralising situation. Rural People have eased that burden enormously and we are grateful for it. Ultimately they’ve saved us time, energy, money and sanity."

Many thanks,
Fearann Farming Ltd

"We have used Rural people for over 18 months to assist with employment of staff on our dairy farm.

Prior to their involvement we had several very bad years with staffing issues.

We have been extremely happy with many of the staff they have sourced for us.

They have been very professional, responding to requests in a timely manner.

I have already recommended them to individuals I know and would happily recommend them as a company well worth contacting if you either need staff or are looking for employment."
