Tractor Driver for Contracting Work
1 position(s) | 24 Feb 2020 - 6 months
|Job #||30510||Location||WA - Regional|
|Duration||6 months||Suburb||2-3 hours from Perth|
|Industry||Agriculture||Direction||150kms NE of Perth|
|Hours per week||72 ($25)|
Starting end of February, a well-established agricultural contractor is looking for an experienced machinery operator for a 6 month position - until 15th August 2020.
The role will include operating a Terragator spreader or a Case air boom with Trimble GPS autosteer to spread fertilizer, using a JCB loader to load fertiliser and lime and includes some shift work and general machinery maintenance.
The position will entail 12+hour working days, 6-7 days per week, so this work is only suitable for someone capable of taking on long hours on an ongoing basis.
The operation works in the Central Midlands area with some occasional work away in areas such as the eastern wheatbelt. Living quarters are provided free and when working away a caravan is provided. Staff must sort out own meals.
No vehicle is required by the applicant as the contractor provides a vehicle to travel to and from work and by agreement this can be used to shop and occasional private use.
Successful applicants will have previous machinery operation experience in Australia and be able to use GPS guidance systems. Mechanical and/or welding abilities are highly desirable as occasional small repairs may need to be done in the paddock. We are looking for a conscientious operator with the ability to operate a machine in a careful and steady way for 12 hours a day without operator stress or "wanting to get it done at once”. It's more important that the job is done carefully and correctly, with minimum damage to machinery.
Pay rate is $25/hour, potentially more if someone can demonstrate very good skills. Great way for someone to work long hours and save some very good money.
Our client is a fantastic contractor with an excellent reputation. Many of our previous staff have returned to him to work for 2nd and 3rd seasons. Perfect job for an experienced operator to work hard and save some serious money over the next 6 months.
