Seasonal Blueberry Harvest Support Opportunities – November to April 2022
Gourmet Blueberries is on the lookout for seasonal staff to join our blueberry harvest team. This is a fast-paced, exciting team environment during the peak of Hawke’s Bay summer, so you’ll be comfortable working in the heat outdoors.

Harvest drivers are responsible for setting up all the equipment before the pickers arrive at 6am. The remainder of the day is spent using quad bikes to transport fruit from the field to the packhouse.
The driving team is small, but effective in working together to get the job done. This is often a high-pressure job, so the ability to keep a level head and follow instruction is vital to succeeding. We expect our health and safety polies to be held to the highest standard, and drivers to lead by example. Harvest drivers must hold a current NZ drivers license and have proven experience operating quad bikes. Additional training will be provided.
Term required; late-November – April 2022

We request all applicants have the flexibility to work extended hours and weekends. You’ll also need reliable transportation to get to work each day. Please specify which job you’re interested in when you apply, and how long you’re available to work for.
Only applicants successful in the next stage of recruitment will be contacted.
All applications close 20 November 2021
