Kiwi cannabis company Rua Bioscience seeks 'large-scale' weed grower

If you have experience with "large-scale" cannabis cultivation, then a high-profile Kiwi cannabis company wants you.

Rua Bioscience - formerly known as the Hikurangi Cannabis Company - is seeking a cultivation project manager to help them with their growing business.

According to the job advert posted to Seek on Tuesday,  the cultivation project manager will "play a key role in setting up and managing stage two of our cultivation and growing activities".

Job responsibilities will include "hands-on support for all cultivation activities", reporting on "grow status metrics" and overseeing budgets for the cultivation operation.

You'll need knowledge of plant diseases, insects, and fungi as well as excellent knowledge of growing methods.

In return, you'll receive "competitive remuneration", "fun" and "a fantastic work environment".

"We are whanau friendly and we want our staff to maintain a healthy work/life balance," the company says

"We work hard, so we think it's important to make time to celebrate our successes too."
