Our response during Covid-19

Our number one priority at this time is the health and safety of our people and those we work with. We are carefully following the guidelines set, to ensure we can continue to deliver our products and services to customers around the world.  Locally, the daily work for many of our staff has been impacted.

Our farm and production facilities remain fully operational, as our key workers deliver the same high standard of animal health and welfare, 7 days a week.

We pride ourselves on exceeding expectations. Your experience applying for a career opportunity is important to us. During this time, you can expect to get to know us better from a social distance. Interviews will be conducted by phone or video and your offer pack will be emailed to you by our friendly HR team. When starting a new career immediate, we have the means to provide you with what you need to set yourself up remotely. Your manager will make and communicate plans about your induction with plenty of notice, making sure to involve your new team from your first day at work.

We play a vital part in the food supply chain worldwide. To join us at Genus is to play an essential role in producing safe and affordable animal protein to nourish the world.

Career development: You can build the career you want at Genus ABS. We will work with you to understand your aspirations, then help you find the path you want and make the progress you need.

Performance management: Every employee, at every level of the company, has clear and measurable annual objectives with mid- and full-year progress reviews. These high-quality, in-depth discussions with your manager help gauge progress and clarify aspirations.

Pay and benefits: We offer competitive pay and benefits in every area of the company. Bonus plans are available for many roles with packages tailored to the employment market in each country.

Technology and tools: We are a company that embraces technology so you can count on receiving the tools and support you need to succeed.

Work-life balance: We recognize people have lives outside of work and encourage each of our employees to strike that appropriate balance, while supporting others in their efforts to do the same.

Our Culture

As the only animal genetics company with a truly worldwide reach and distinctly global mind-set, we do more than just encourage daily collaboration between colleagues in different businesses, countries, and roles.
