Welcome to Victoria's best job importunity this summer! Apply now and secure you space.
My brother and I, both in our early 30s own a cherry farm 2 hours drive from Melbourne and need workers from mid November - January.
We have been farming cherries and hosting backpackers for over 10 years and pride ourselves on producing Victoria's best fruit and providing our workers with a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the real Australia.
Jobs description; Most of the work we offer is picking cherries. We pay per kg, usually around $1 to $1.5 per kg but it changes daily to stay fair. The harder you work the more money you will make.
We also have positions in our packing shed which include grading and packing. These position are paid hourly at the award rate, around $26 per hour.
We also have several management positions and sales positions available to the correct applicants.
You cannot apply for these positions. People will be selected after arrival.
What to expect.
We work hard and start early. Some weeks we will work 7 days. Some weeks we will take it easier and may only work 3. This is fruit picking and very dependent on the weather. We work when we can but when we can't we will go swimming in the rivers, hiking in the mountains, exploring Victoria, have bonfires and enjoy the country lifestyle.
We provide all of your accommodation on the farm, the building is new as of 2016, we also have a bar, dining room, games rooms, hammock gardens, and large kitchen.
In addition to your accommodation we provide all of your food, either prepared or unprepared.
Expect fresh, healthy food each day.
We charge $44 per night for this opportunity.
You can expect to make between $ per week. There is also a government grant available that we will assist you to receive. This grant will pay you up to $6000 if you are a resident and $2000 if you are a visa holder to cover your relocations and accommodation costs.
I require hard working, honest people that are easy going and looking to enjoy their time in Australia.
If you are purely focused on making money this is not the job for you. We want fun people that want to experience the real Australia.
I need 40 employees to arrive November.
Please email me a description of yourself and what your interests are. If you have had relevant jobs in the past let me know. Otherwise a CV is not necessary. Just tell me about yourself.
I look forward to hearing from you.
