Autumn in the Australian agriculture industry is an industrious time of the year. The extraordinary weather and geographical contrasts means our country produces a diversity of crops like nowhere else in the world.
At Agri Labour Australia (ALA) the beginning of these cooler months sees us working with many of our clients into their harvests or doing the hard work to prepare for the year’s future crops.
Busy as always, the ALA recruitment team have been connecting clients with the right candidates for some great seasonal work. Happening right now is the annual almond harvest which takes place across South Australia, NSW and Victoria. ALA has been placing candidates into roles within the Victorian processing plants – with the most in demand workers being experienced forklift operators and skilled factory labourers.
Another major activity during the Autumn months is seed sowing and groundwork for broadacre crops such as barley, wheat, sorghum, oats and canola. Located across Queensland, WA and NSW, this large scale farming calls for people with knowledge of broadacre farming, irrigation experience and skilled drivers who can operate a range of heavy farm machinery.
There’s plenty of other roles on hand for those wishing to work in Australia on a Working Holiday visa, with apple, grape and pear picking in the southern states and Tasmania. There’s also the highly lucrative cotton season and a huge range of vegetables ripe and ready for harvest in Central and South East Queensland.
Whether it’s machinery operations, trades, processing, fruit picking, short or long term roles, Agri Labour Australia has an extensive network of long term clients and an impressive candidate base.
