A 4400 hectare mixed farm near Calingiri, WA (2 hours north of Perth) is looking for an experienced farmhand / tractor driver to start mid-March and commit through seeding (3.5 months).
For the first month, work will be a combination of general farm labouring and tractor driving. This includes spreading lime, fencing, machinery maintenance and some occassional sheep work.
When seeding starts late April, this person will be operating a John Deere 9630 tractor with a 60 foot DBS seeding bar. The seeder runs 24 hours and this role will be on day or night shift (12+ hour shifts).
Hours prior to seeding will be Monday-Friday and some Saturdays, usually 7:30am - 5pm. Once seeding starts, work will be 6 days a week, 12+ hour shifts.
Pay rate is $25/hour, potentially more for applications with previous seasons of seeding experience.
Free accommodation is provided in a modern house on the farm. A farm ute is available for local driving but it's best that someone has or buys their own car so that they can get back to Perth on weekends if they want to.
Excellent employer to work for. This farm rarely needs to look for staff as everyone stays so long! Very good work environment, plus great location close to Perth.
