|Hours per week||72+ ($26.50)|
A 14,600 ha cropping farm near Jerramungup, WA (5 hours southeast of Perth) requires two experienced machinery operators to operate self-propelled spray rigs. These positions are available for an immediate start with the potential to stay through harvest.
The main role will be operating a John Deere R4045 self-propelled spray rig with a 120 foot boom. There are two spray rigs and shifts will depend on weather conditions, so operators need to be flexible. Shifts are usually 12-13 hours. Pay rate will be negotiated based on experience, between $26.50 - $30/hour. Only people with previous spraying experience will be eligible for the higher rate.
Once spraying is finished, there will be other machinery operating, spreading and general farm work available until harvest starts. Hours will average 9-10 per day during this time.
Applicants for these positions must have previous experience operating large scale farm machinery with GPS autosteer. Ideal applicants will come from a strong farming and machinery background and have a good deal of common sense and a strong understanding of farming practices. 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.
Accommodation is provided for free in a self-contained house and staff must sort their own food and meals. There is a vehicle to use to go into town for shopping.
