Tractor / Loader Driver for Seeding
1 position(s) | 18 Mar 2019 - 3 months+
|Job #||28963||Location||WA - Regional|
|Duration||3 months+||Suburb||Bindi Bindi|
|Industry||Agriculture||Direction||2 hours northeast of Perth|
|Hours per week||60+ ($26.50)|
Starting mid March, a 8500 hectare cropping farm about 2 hours northeast of Perth is looking for one farm machinery operator for the seeding season.
This job should last about 3 months, with an earliest end date of early June, however there is potential for staff to stay on longer.
Work prior to seeding will entail using a loader to clean up paddocks, servicing machinery and other general farm work to prepare for seeding.
When seeding starts in mid April, this person will have two options of jobs, decided based on machinery skill level:
On a John Deere 9 RX (quadtrack) towing a 50 foot seeding bar OR supporting the seeding team with loader work, filling up tractors with seed and fertiliser, driving trucks, etc. Work during this time will usually be 6 days a week, 12 hours shifts.
Pay rate is $26.50/hour and accommodation is provided for free in a modern, air-conditioned house on the farm. Staff are responsible for arranging their own meals. There is a farm vehicle you can use to go into town for shopping, but not for weekend trips to the beach or back to Perth. It is recommmended that applicants have their own vehicle.
Applicants from this role must have previous experience operating large broadacre machinery with preference given for applicants who have already completed a seeding season. This property 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 and helpful farm environment. Here is some feedback from our air seeder operator from 2018: I wanna thank you for this job. It's a really great farm to work. Nice people and great work environment. I really appreciate this opportunity.
