Thinking about working on a broadacre farm in Western Australia?
We are looking for a full-time farm hand for this year, with a permanent position for the right person to be long term. Experience with seeding a requirement along with at least a HR license but preferred to have a HC ( class 5 ), and some spraying experience would be an advantage.
We are running a mixed farming operation with 75% crop along with Cattle and Sheep on a 4800 ha property. Seeding, spraying and harvest are all done with 4cm guidance.
Operations you would be doing includes but not limited to,Operation and maintenance of modern farming machinery including seeding, spraying, harvesting, hay, spreading and animal husbandry, as well as general farm hand jobs and maintenance.Hours are variable and flexible depending on the time of the year.
Remuneration package based on experience and ability, but package will include accommodation in a 3 bedroom house with 18mth old kitchen ( power & internet inc ) and a work vehicle.
We are located 3 1/2 hours East of Perth in Western Australia in Hyden. Wave Rock is a major tourist attraction which is 5km from town and both offer plenty of opportunity for a partner to get work if required.
We also encourage our staff to actively be involved in the community, with multiple sports and organisations available.
We have had 3 New Zealanders work for us in the past and would be happy to pass on there names if you would like to contact them to discuss what it is like to live and work in WA.
We would also assist with quarantine and applications to come to WA if required. This situation changes daily so we would need to assess at the time.
