Who We Need

Agri Labour Australia is currently accepting expression of interests for Skilled Machinery Operators for the 2018 Almond Harvest.

Job Description

Agri Labour Australia is now accepting applications for Machinery Operators for the 2018 Almond Harvest. The harvest will begin in early-mid February, and continue through to early April - just in time for cotton season!

We have a range of positions available across several different harvesting machines, including:

  • Sweepers
  • Pick-ups
  • Bank-outs
  • Conditioners
  • Mechanic Assistants

While there are also some unskilled roles on offer, the majority of positions require extensive experience and great mechanical aptitude. Those with previous experience operating and maintaining tractors, excavators, forklifts, cotton pickers and/or combine harvesters are strongly encouraged to apply.

Please note, these are complex pieces of machinery and the almond harvesting process is one that is dynamic and intricate. Great attention to detail, safety mindedness, a collaborative nature and results based orientation are a must in order to be successful. An appreciation for the nature of the agriculture industry is required - work conditions are dusty, hours are long, and weather does impact the course of the harvest.

Agri Labour Australia is offering competitive rates in excess of $25 per hour for operators, PLUS generous bonus schemes and incentive plans based around challenging yet realistic KPIs being met. Rates of pay will vary based on level of experience and the type and nature of the machinery assigned to you based on aptitude.

As applications are competitive, submit your interest with a detailed resume focusing heavily on your machinery operating experience, and include a minimum of two professional references.

Please note - the location is remote. Agri Labour Australia will assist where possible in finding accommodation and has arranged some suitable options at low costs.
