Tractor Driver and Farm Labourer for Seeding - 2 Roles

2 position(s) | 8 Apr 2019 - 8-10 weeks

Job # 29124 Location WA - Regional
Duration 8-10 weeks Suburb Bindi Bindi
Industry Agriculture Direction 2 hours northeast of Perth
Hours per week 70+   ($26.50)

Job Description:

Starting between April 5th - 12th, a 8500 hectare cropping farm about 2 hours northeast of Perth is looking two staff for the seeding season.

1 x Tractor Driver / Farm Labourer

This person will be operating either an air seeder or a spray rig for the seeding season.  Other duties will include machinery maintenance, helping to fill up tractors with seed and fertiliser and general farm duties. 

Pay rate for this role will start at $26.50/hour, potentially more for someone who has multiple seasons of seeding or spraying experience in Australia. 

1 x Farm Labourer / Seeding Support Staff

This role will entail supporting the seeding team with loader work, filling up tractors with seed and fertiliser, driving trucks, etc.  The job would be a good fit for someone who has a good general farm labouring background.  

Pay rate for this role is $26.50/hour.  

For the first couple of weeks, work will be 50+ hours/week as the farm starts to get ready for seeding.  Once seeding season is in full swing, hours for both staff members should be 12 hour days, 5-6 days a week (depending on weather). 

Accommodation is provided for free in a modern, air-conditioned donga 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. 

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.
