Starting in mid/late October, a 8,340 ha controlled traffic (CTF) cropping farm northeast of Esperance requires two casual staff for 8 weeks during the harvest season; an MC Truck Driver and a Chaser Bin Driver. We are open to considering a couple or two individuals for these positions.
MC Truck Driver / Allrounder
The farm uses a local contractor for their grain carting to CBH but they need one truck driver to work on the farm carting grain from the tractors and bins to the shed for storage. The farm covers a few properties and to get to them, you have to drive on main roads, so this person must have an Australian MC license. Other than truck driving, this person will be relief chaser bin driving, helping fill up trucks, shifting machinery, etc.
This is a great job for an MC truck driver who doesn't want to be stuck in a truck all harvest and would like to do a variety of jobs on the farm.
Pay rate is $30/hour. Shifts during harvest will be 10-12 hours+.
Chaser Bin Driver
The main responsibility will be operating a Claas 930 tractor towing a 30 tonne chaser bin. Other duties include machinery maintenance, and occassionaly helping to fill up trucks or shift machinery. Shifts during harvest will be 12-16 hours+.
Pay rate is $25/hour. Applicants for this position must have at least one harvest season of experience on a chaser bin.
For both roles, accommodation is provided for free on the farm. Staff must arrange their own meals.
This employer has a very high level health and safety policy, so applicants should have good attention to detail and be able to work within the safety guidelines of the farm. This is an excellent, well-run farm to work on and would be a great fit for people who want to work in a very professional farm environment.
