About B R Shearing Limited:
B R Shearing Limited (BRS) based in Geraldine has been in the shearing business for over 37 years and have clients that have been with them since the beginning. Bruce moved to Geraldine from Timaru 20 years ago where he set up shearer’s quarters and an office for the administration. This is a good central location to the many parts of the South Island they provides shearing services to.
BRS has an experienced and skilled team of shearers and shed hands, sourced and organised by Pip Te Hopu. Pip has been a part of the team for over 11 years, firstly bringing her experience as a woolhandler to work in Bruce’s sheds, before moving into management a couple of years later. Pip spends many hours finding staff and often organising their travel arrangements to Geraldine. She deals with the clients scheduling their shearing around the weather and getting the staff to various sheds on a daily basis. There is employment for many shearers and shed hands all year round and over 50 people are employed during the busy times. BRS is committed to providing a safe and happy workplace and holds regular health and safety meetings where their staff are encouraged to contribute. The quarters at Geraldine hold accommodation for around 30 people, which is essential for the many staff that come from other areas of New Zealand and overseas. This facility also provides accommodation for other local businesses who employ seasonal staff and require somewhere for them to stay. In remote places the shearing crews go on “stayout” to on-farm or nearby quarters. Pip spends a lot of time on the road delivering fresh supplies and visiting sheds and clients where her crews are working. BRS has a modern fleet of vans for transporting staff. BRS has many valued clients and they are great people to work with. Bruce and Pip provide a quality service, from the shearing of the sheep, to handling the clients clip.
We hire staff all year round so contact us today for employment opportunities or alternatively contact Pip on the contact information to the right.
