Yarra Valley Caviar is a freshwater Atlantic Salmon farm situation in Murrindindi, around 1.5hrs from Melbourne CBD.
We are seeking casual labour to cover the entire season of milking in May to harvest the roe from our fish. The season will begin on May 10th through to May 30th. (Please note, these dates may extend due to the nature of the product and fish)
The work involves manual handling of the fish, netting and scooping. Following this the fish are hand milked for their eggs while they are live. The job requires strength and endurance, the ability to follow direction and work in a fast paced environment to reduce the stress put on the fish. Experience is not required, although previous understanding of farm practices are preferred.
The working hours are from 8am- 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Award rates apply, covering all hours worked and scheduled breaks.
