Position available – part time milker

Category : General Farm

This is an exciting development for us, because in almost 10 years, we have not advertised externally!  So this is a unique situation that rarely presents itself.

We have an opening for a person that is interested in being part of a wider team, operating primarily within the milking team.  We have recently changed our full time staff to a 10/4 roster situation and we are looking at employing someone who can work in filling the gaps of this roster.

The position will initially be offered as a casual position for the first 2 weeks, and if the person is suitable, will be transferred over to  part time role, incurring all the benefits attached to that (pro rata annual and sick leave etc).  The days of work will likely to be Thursday through to Sunday with various weekends off by arrangement.  The hours are expected to be between 20 – 30/wk depending on various times of the year.  Weekend work is expected of this position.

This position is likely to suit a high school student, someone looking to only work a few days a week or someone that is interested in entering the industry.  Experience is not necessary and all introductory training will be provided.

The successful applicant will be provided with a uniform and necessary training both on and off farm (to comply with OH&S).  The renumeration will be based on award wages for new entrants and we are open to discussion regarding above award wages for those that apply (and referees check out) with experience.

Our current team is a strong and well established one, so the successful applicant will have to work with the exisiting members, take direction and add to the overall value of the business.  We encourage females to apply as we are a family based operation with 2 females already working within the business (at operational and administrative levels).

A position description is available on request.
