As 2021 draws to a close, it’s time to take a look at the year that has been!
Covid-19 has remained front and centre across the world and continues to challenge so many industries, including Australian agriculture. With thousands of fantastic jobs on offer all over the country, we hope to see many more of our wonderful Working Visa Holders and backpackers arriving in Australia in 2022 to support our farmers who are missing this amazing workforce of people!
As always in this big country of ours, weather has been a huge factor and yet again, we’ve seen drought affected areas becoming badly flooded by heavy rains at the end of the year. It has been extremely hard for many fruit and vegetable growers and in some places, the grain harvest was stopped due to this weather. However, with bumper grain crops still needing harvesting and the return of sunny skies, it’s back to business as usual for the many people we have working hard on our clients’ sites.
While it has been a tough year for ag, there has been plenty of positives along with more than a few changes to the ALA team. We have been embracing this change, with each one of our new staff members bringing their own set of great skills and a fresh perspective that will see the business continue to evolve and build on the great work we do.
Moving forward into 2022, we will be relocating our Brisbane head office from Kelvin Grove, down the road to Fortitude Valley, which will give our team some much needed extra office space!
Lastly, it should be said that Agri Labour Australia wouldn’t be here without all our fantastic clients and candidates. We work with some of the very best people in the industry and know that we have the best workers in the country! We appreciate each and every person and wish to pass on our sincere thanks for supporting our business and for your role in making a difference to Australian agriculture.
Stay safe friends and have a wonderful holiday season wherever you are and whatever you do.
See you in 2022!
