Station Managers supervise the overall running of cattle stations in remote areas of Australia. It’s a complex role which involves keeping the station productive by making crucial decisions about livestock production and organising your team of workers. But you’ll also need to make sure the station is profitable so your work will involve a lot of business planning and administrative tasks. You’ll need to know all the current regulations for your industry and make sure the station is meeting the necessary requirements.
Station Managers need to be flexible and able to perform a range of different tasks during any working day. You’ll spend a great deal of time outdoors and have to be capable of physically demanding jobs. Your work as a cattle manager will mean you’ll need to be good with livestock and you’ll have a lot people working under you so you’ll need to bring strong leadership qualities to the role. You’ll also need a good head for business and be able to conduct administration tasks when needed.
