Due to an increase in production, we are seeking mushroom pickers for this fantastic opportunity located in Murrumbateman NSW, 25 minutes from Canberra. The right candidate must be a fast working, thorough, keen and energetic individual, with relevant experience. Situated near the township of Murrumbateman and Canberra is just 25 minutes.
This fantastic farm is run by a friendly family and treats staff like family too. We have workers of different backgrounds, so if you only speak minimal English, this will not be a problem.
Ideally, you are an Australian resident or have Permanent Residency and can work long term. This job will suit new migrants with minimal but functional English. The work is on-going as mushrooms are grown indoors all year around.
Mushroom picking can be labour intensive and repetitive and you will be on your feet a lot. They are grown indoors in a comfortable environment (around 18degC), so you don't get exhausted from the heat or sun like other produce. We require fast, healthy, fit individuals with an excellent attitude towards work and good attention to detail. Previous farm work or picking experience will be highly regarded.
Working hours are dependent on mushrooms, and can sometimes be long if there is a lot to pick. Work starts at 7am, normally 6 days per week, but can be 7 days. If you want to earn really good money, this is the job for you.
Successful applicants will be provided with all the details in due course, as well as help and support during your employment. We may require a telephone interview/application.
On-site accommodation is provided for cheap rent with excellent facilities which include kitchen, shower and other amenities. Alternatively, you can rent in Canberra and commute to work everyday.
