We do our best to get you started as soon as possible in a job that suits you and the farmer.
Transport is provided by the farmer and pick up points are at designated places in town. We cannot guarantee the amount of work, as horticultural work is subject to change without notice often due to the weather or market prices.
This makes for a long, healthy working relationship.
To be placed on the work list, you must have paid your weekly accommodation and your bond of $300.
You will also need the following: –
A copy of your passport will be kept on file along with copies of your yellow card and visa grant letter. Your pay will be deposited weekly into your nominated Australian bank account.
Tully is also one of the wettest places in Australia, so be prepared to work in the rain.
It is our responsibility to the farmers that all workers we supply are hard working as farmers will expect a fair days work for a fair days pay.
General, men are recruited to ‘hump’ or balance the heavy banana bunches on their shoulder from the tree to the trailer or on to moving line from the trailer in the shed. Women usually work in the shed to ‘sort’ the bananas before they are packed or pruning the banana trees.
We do not guarantee work as it is not guaranteed to us. However, we do our best to find you work as soon as possible. We also cannot guarantee the amount of work, as horticultural work is subject to change without notice, often due to the weather or market prices.
The farmer may refuse to allow you to work if you are not dressed appropriately or ill–equipped for the days work. Therefore we have compiled a list of basic equipment needed when going to work.
