Join Baygold as an Orchard Worker and enjoy a Summer working outdoors.

You will complete a range of orchard tasks including bud thinning, crush tipping, training canes, and other orchard maintenance tasks as assigned by your supervisor. You may also cross over into our machinery team to help with spraying and other orchard maintenance requirements.

Most days, you will be on your feet all day and working with your arms.  Although demanding, this can be really enjoyable work, especially if you love being outside and already have some base level of fitness.

Hours of work are 7.30am to 5.00pm, with an average of 45 hours/week, Monday to Sunday.  Your days off are likely to be determined by the rain and you may need to work a 7-day week from time to time.

With no previous experience required, this is a great opportunity as ongoing work may become available depending on seasonal needs.

These are fantastic fixed-term roles, in a caring and supportive company.

We look forward to hearing from you!
