Agri Labour Australia has partnered with GrainCorp to oversee casual employment opportunities throughout their Eastern Australian Sites. Applications are now open for over 500 roles in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria for the 2017 Wheat harvest which starts in September through to early December. A number of the sites are in remote locations.

Benefits of working with us include:

  • Generous salary with overtime and penalty rates. These are short term roles, with long hours so you can earn a lot of money in a limited amount of time.
  • We also offer long-term and flexible work, and have clients all around the country so we are a one-stop shop for all your future employment needs.
  • Our work can take you to every corner of Australia. Travel down with the harvest moving from Central Queensland down to southern Victoria.
  • We help you save money and make your travels easier by connecting you with your team mates prior to your employment which takes the stress out of organizing transport and accommodation.
  • We can show you videos of your work environment, so you can get a realistic insight into your day-to-day tasks.
  • Australia is a multicultural country, so we employ local, transient and international applicants. Our team of recruiters consists of many different cultures so often you can speak to your recruiter in your own language, and we understand everyone’s different needs.
  • We support you – if you have any issues while working we are the only company that has leading hands on-site for you to talk to and you can also talk to your recruiter.

You will be responsible for building and maintaining grain bunkers, directing traffic and operating machinery such as hoppers and stackers. You are a hardworking, physically fit self-starter who enjoys the outdoors and is used to working long hours when required. Reliability is key and will be rewarded with future work, if desired. Being safety-conscious is crucial as you’ll need to follow strict safety procedures and as the work is extremely dusty this role is not suitable for anyone with asthma or dust allergies. Be aware, this industry is impacted by weather events that lead to changing start dates and site requirements.

As an employer we pride ourselves on our positive corporate culture and encourage applications from a diverse range of candidates. Regardless of circumstances, this is a fantastic opportunity for those who are looking to make a lot of money in a limited amount of time.

To be successful in this role, you will need:

  • Good physical fitness and past labouring experience an advantage.
  • Strong work ethic and a track record of working successfully in a team environment.
  • Good communication skills and be fluent in English.
  • Ability to work under pressure.
  • Certificate in confined space training and front end loader licences will be viewed favourably.

Good pay, safe working environment

5/ 5

Through Agri Labour Australia I got a job with Sandiago Farm, in NSW.

As farm work goes I was very lucky. There were tough times with weather along with other personal challenges but I know there are much worse experiences out there, and I was paid above award rates.

Induction given at the start, and further training when undertaking new tasks

They responded to workplace injuries promptly.

Long hours, payed by hour, drug test before start in Cotton business farm.

5/ 5

Agrilabour Australia had an awesome online system which you can register how many hours you do and what you do. They generally pay you every fortnight and provide necessary documentation to support an 2nd year visa application. Whenever you work in the outback or in a factory, there is an induction process which you learn how to get the most of the job with safety. Agrilabour’s team also had a great follow up procedure while you working on a farm. If you get sick because of heatwave you are allowed to stay out of work and get back when you fully recovered. I really do recommend Agrilabour. They are honest and give a good support.

Good for the 88!

3/ 5

I have worked a few times for Agri Labour in the cotton industry. If you are after just getting your 88 days done, you are probably well off going through Agri Labour.They pay proper wages, do medicals and work mostly for very decent companies so they are probably and sadly still one of your best options for the 88 days.

However, I personally don’t want to work for them ever again. This is due to them being a unprofessional and a discriminating company. One of the examples from the workplace I worked at: Agri Labour hired a person who was in charge for people at the site. There where problems with sexual harassment from this person towards young employees. Some of them made an official complaint against this person to Agri Labour on several occasions. Agri Labour didn’t take these complaints serious and hired this same person again the next season with the same complaints following and even complaints from the manager. In the end the cotton company got rid of this person even though he was directly employed under Agri Labour. Agri Labour gave this person another manager role straight away in one of their other companies. This is only one of the situations I witnessed, and why I would describe them as professional and iIwish not to work with them ever again.

If you don't speak Chinese, stay away. (Blueberry picking)

1/ 5

I did my blueberry picking in Tumbarumba NSW. I love my job but my Taiwanese supervisor (Jessica) & korean runner (Lucy) gave me a hard time during my work in Rosewood Farm. Most of the briefing conducted in Mandarin before you start picking. Yes.. briefing in Mandarin and only lil bit in English before work. I was released early than expected before the season end with only 4 days notice. Reason being was, I’m a slow picker or could be also, quality, quantity, working attitude and attendance. Never once, i take a day off and i always listen to my superior eventho sometimes what they told us to do doesn’t make sense at all. There are pickers who picked at least 80kg per day still need to leave the farm early. I wonder how these Taiwanese & Koreans could get a managerial/Supervisor post? Do they have qualifications in horticulture or something? Who are they to determine who’s not fit to be a picker? The runner told me to pick whatever that can be seen eventho the blueberries is still unripe. She said Costa Boss is coming. Just pick and make sure your row is clean. Is that the standard from Costa Berries???
