Working in Australia’s great agri industry doesn’t have to mean a move to the outback.
If you’ve always dreamed of a job in agriculture but don’t want to move to a rural or remote region, Agri Labour Australia has just the career for you. With a diverse range of city-based jobs in metro areas around the country, these largely ongoing positions are less weather-dependent than their rural counterparts, and mean there’s no need to leave your life in the city.
Available jobs are varied and plentiful, and can include:
- Process workers
- Quality-assurance personnel
- Stock controllers
- Hygiene workers
- Maintenance fitters
- Team leaders
- Production supervisors
- Machinery operators
- Forklift drivers
The automation in the Australian agriculture industry is some of the most advanced in the world, and the level of job satisfaction derived from working in an efficient, paddock-to-plate process that benefits Aussie families is huge. With so many agriculture companies now having metro bases and offering excellent job progression, your career path can be continuous and stable whilst still enjoying all the benefits of city living.
Another benefit of working at a metro-based agriculture business is that the rates of pay tend to be higher than at their rural and seasonal counterparts. Generally starting at around $25-$26 per hour for a new starter, Sunday rates can go up to $40 per hour and beyond – great rates that make a fulfilling job even more rewarding.
Finally, with an increasing number of workers in the Australian agriculture industry coming from the domestic workforce, your colleagues will be both casual and permanent employees ranging from new recruits to industry experts – and whatever your skill-set, there’s an agriculture role for you. So if you’re a city-dweller looking for a long-term career path in one of the most rewarding industries around, the opportunities within the Aussie agriculture industry are some of the very best.
