Harvest supervisors play a vital role in the day-to-day blueberry harvest activities. Harvest supervisors take on many different tasks including assisting pickers into rows, weighing fruit and ensuring that quality and health and safety standards are consistently being met.
Supervisors work in sub-groups monitoring up to 100 pickers, but collectively oversee up to 700 pickers per day to ensure that they are picking to the best of their ability. Supervisors must be able to work as part of a team and have strong verbal and written communication skills to effectively interact with both management and pickers of various nationalities and backgrounds.
Parent hours may be considered for the right applicant.
Term required; late-November – early-January, February-April 2022
