Pickers / Farm labourers to start at the end of April 2021 and finish October 2021 to work on berry farms located in the region of Caboolture, Queensland (working under a labour hire agreement with these farms).
Picking duties are performed under a Horticulture Award 2020 Piecework Agreement. Your wage will be calculated through the weight of fruit that you have picked which meets quality standards. Other roles such as working in the pack house, non-harvest tasks, general plant and farm maintenance positions are also available.
General farm work will usually be paid hourly, with renumeration set at Level 1 rates under the horticulture award.
Points to note:
Hours during the season can be long, and rostered work often includes weekends.
You will need to ensure that you are available to work all hours required on a rostered basis.
You will need to have your own, reliable form of transport.
The duration of the working days cannot be predicted, as they are dictated by the quantity of fruit available on the day (which is largely weather dependant).
This will be a labour-intensive job and work can be repetitive. Most roles are working outdoors. If you have never worked on a farm before, please consider this before you apply.
Please note that Hillwood Berries is only seeking applicants who are available to work for the full 6 months. Please do not apply if you are only looking for a shorter-term position.
