Calling all New Zealanders

Australian agriculture is open to business for candidates from across the Tasman.

As global travel has all but ground to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s good news for New Zealanders wanting to
work in the beautiful Australian agriculture industry. With no visa requirements and – currently – a quarantine-free travel
bubble, the situation is a great opportunity for candidates keen to experience the thrill of working overseas.

Keen to start your journey?

Offering a wide variety of short- and long-term opportunities to suit all skill levels, the industry also has competitive pay-rates – on more generous wages than their counterparts in New Zealand, casual workers in Australia can also access paid overtime. With the ability to often work alongside a partner or friend, either in a continuous role or in multiple jobs across Australia, there’s never been a better time to seize the day and start your Australian agriculture adventure.

Accommodation and transport

Depending on the specific workplaces and jobs, accommodation and transport is either organised by candidates themselves, by the employer, or chosen from options provided. Whilst Agri Labour Australia can’t take care of the finer travel details, we are able to point you in the direction of help, should you need it.

Types of jobs

The roles on offer are varied – in the Australian agriculture industry, there truly is something for everyone. From all-year-round livestock roles – think piggeries, dairy farm jobs and poultry producers – to harvesting work that offers a range of picking, machinery operation and labour tasks, every candidate can find a role that’s right for them.

At the end the most important thing of a recruitment agency is when someone really takes care of you. Specially if you are abroad. This was my first experience with Agri Labour and I totally recommend it!

How lucky I am to know Agri Labour Australia and become a part of them. I’ve been 14 months in Australia and this is the sixth time I worked with them. Now I am working in SSR for the second time, surrounded by good environment and good people.
