The Launch of Agri Veterans Twelve Month Harvest Trail

An exciting and rewarding career opportunity for veterans returning to civilian life.

Agri Veterans Twelve Month Harvest Trail is the latest initiative by Agri Labour Australia designed to provide veterans with an excellent way of sampling the diverse career opportunities available across the country’s thriving agriculture sector.

Over twelve months, successful participants will travel the country learning new skills as they take part in some of Australia’s most exciting and productive harvests.

The Roles

Ex defence personnel will be able to travel Australia working on a range of farms that see them travelling anywhere from Far North Queensland down to Mildura in Victoria.

Utilising existing knowledge and experience, the jobs deliver the advantage of learning new skills and include roles such as heavy machine operators, grain handlers, forklift drivers, picking attendants, packhouse assistants and much more.

Supported by GrainCorp, Queensland Cotton, OLAM International and Ontario Mangoes, the Twelve Month Harvest Trail commences with the Mango season in late November in Dimbulah on the stunning Atherton Tableland before progressing south during 2020 for the almond, cotton and grain harvests.

Eligible candidates can start their contract at any time with the harvest of their choice. The length of seasons vary, and the roles are progressive to ensure minimal down time and provide plenty of variety and adventure for veterans.

Tim Chapman, Program Manager of Agri Veterans said, ‘The Twelve Month Harvest Trail is the perfect way for ex defence personnel to find satisfying entry level jobs into commercial agribusinesses while being a part of a really exciting growth industry. The initiative and roles have been specifically designed to see veterans enjoy new and rewarding long term careers.’
