Farm Machinery Operator - 5 months+
1 position(s) | 28 Jan 2019 - 5 months+
|Job #||28731||Location||WA - Regional|
|Industry||Agriculture||Direction||250ks North of Perth|
|Hours per week||50+ ($24-26)|
An 5500 hectare family cropping operation in the Coorow area (3 hours north of Perth) requires an experienced machinery operator for 5 months+ work. This role will start either at the end of January or early February and will run through seeding (end of June).
The position will entail all aspects of broadacre machinery operation such as spreading, deep ripping and seeding. Other duties include machinery maintenance and some general farm labouring when required. If this person has previous spraying experience, there will be some boomspraying as a part of the job.
The farm has well-kept, modern machinery such as a New Holland articulated tractor, a John Deere 8430 and a self profelled boompsray. All machinery has GPS autosteer.
Between January - early April, hours will be 50+ per week. During seeding April - June, hours will increase to 70+ per week.
Pay rate will be negotiated based on experience, likely between $24-26/hour. Accommodation is provided in a house on the farm, which is 30 kms from Coorow. Some food is provided as well. A vehicle can be used to go into town for shopping but it's preferred for the applicant to have their own car to go back to Perth, to the beach, etc. on days off.
Coorow is a lively farming area with an active social community. This is a great job for someone wanting a longer-term farm machinery position.
