Description

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE NOT CURRENTLY IN NZ OR DO NOT HOLD A CURRENT WORK VISA

The job description: Picking work is available now and requires workers to carefully select and pick fruit at the optimum maturity with fruit from each tree harvested. Sometimes, multiple times over the course of the season. Workers will be trained in all aspects of the tasks although experience is preferred. Working at heights either on ladders or platforms, picking generally requires workers to fill and carry bags filled with harvested fruit from tree to fruit bin.

Although physically demanding some work will be done on a self-driving platform ( Hydralada) taking away the need for ladders and picking bags. Picking work is from now until the end of May.

The person: We are looking for anyone wanting an outdoor experience over summer while they search for new horizons or someone looking for a taste of an orchard career to see if it is for them.

The work can be physically demanding shifting ladders, working at heights on ladders, carrying bags full of apples and in the heat of the day so workers must be physically able.

Job Requirements

Must have own reliable transport, be health and safety conscious, have appropriate work wear and be willing to commit to at least 5 days per week.
