Header and Chaser Bin Driver for Harvest

2 position(s) | 14 Oct 2019 - 3 months

Job # 29815 Location WA - Regional
Duration 3 months Suburb Lake Camm
Industry Agriculture Direction -
Hours per week 84+   ($25)

Job Description:

A 3,200 hectare family farm in the Lake King area (4.5 hours southeast of Perth) requires two experienced machinery operators for the upcoming grain harvest sesason.

1 x Header Operator

This person will be on a Case 8120 header for long day shifts (7am - 9pm, approximately). Other duties include machinery maintenance and some general farm labouring.

1 x Chaser Bin Driver

The chaser bin driver will be on a 4WD Case Magnum tractor towing a 30 tonne trailer for long day shifts. Other duties include machinery maintenance and some general farm labouring.

Applicants for both roles must have strong machinery backgrounds with preference given to people who have already worked a harvest season either in Australia or their home country. It is possible for the header and chaser drivers to swap roles at times if both are capable of operating the header. 

Both roles could start early to mid October. Prior to harvest there would be general farm work to be done in preparation for harvest and people need to be willing to help out with fencing, stock handling and general farm labouring work if they would like an early start.

Pay rate for both positions will be based on experience, approximately $25/hour. 

Accommodation is provided in a 2 bedroom unit on the farm and lunch and dinner are supplied during harvest. A vehicle can be provided to get into town for shopping and errands. 

Lake King is only 15 kms away from the farm.
