|Job #||28130||Location||WA - Perth|
|Duration||8 weeks||Suburb||Wongan Hills|
|Hours per week||70+ ($25+)|
A family farm in Wongan Hills, WA requires one experienced header operator and one chaser bin driver for the harvest season. Work will likely start at the very end of October or early November and will run until just before Chrismas (7-8 weeks).
Header Operator - This person will be operating a brand new John Deere S 790 harvester. Considering this is a new and very modern machine, we are only accepting applications for operators who have completed at least one season (prefer more) on a header. Pay rate will be negotiable based on experience level.
Chaser Bin Driver - The chaser bin driver will operate a John Deere 8320 R tractor towing a 30 tonne bin. Pay rate is $25/hour for experienced chaser bin drivers.
The farm runs two shifts and both of these positions will be on the afternoon/night shift from about 1 or 2pm to midnight or 1am. Shifts are typically between 10-12 hours long. If conditions permit harvest to run longer into the night, it will.
Accommodation is provided on the farm in a self-contained cottage with bedroom with ensuite, living room, kitchen and laundry facilities. Staff are expected to arrange their own meals. The farm is only 10 kms from Wongan Hills and a farm ute can be provided to go into town for shopping or on days off.
Fantastic farm to work for, here is what our harvest operator had to say last year: Thank you so much for this outstanding opportunity to work with/for such wonderful people. I can honestly say am enjoying every minute of every day. The farmers have welcomed us warmly and it is an outright pleasure to be part of such a dynamic professional agricultural operation.
