Harvest Labour Services

jobactive harvest labour

Harvest Labour Services and the National Harvest Labour Information Service connect workers with employers in harvesting areas across Australia.

Access to these services is not limited to people receiving income support payments.

Harvest Labour Services link workers with seasonal harvest jobs in eleven rural and remote locations across Australia. These locations do not have adequate local labour supply to meet seasonal peaks in employer demand.

If you are an employer, Harvest Labour Services will screen and match your workers for you. You can find a local Harvest Labour Services provider through the provider search on the jobactive website.

Your job vacancies will appear online through the Harvest Trail and the jobactive mobile app.

If you are looking for work, harvest work is available throughout the year, provided you are willing to travel to where the work is located. Anyone who is legally entitled to work in Australia is eligible to be placed into harvest work. Find more about how you can access harvest work.
