GETTING JOB READY

MADEC Harvest offices offers Job Ready Inductions, in these inductions candidates are given the opportunity to discuss working in horticulture in an open forum with your local knowledgeable and experienced Harvest Officer. Topics generally covered include, pay, conditions of work, hours, tips to be an effective worker. Candidates will then complete a pre-employment WHS and Workplace orientation induction, once completed, candidates will be referred to work suitable to them, or if there are no positions available at that point in the season, they will be placed on a Job Ready List and will be contacted when suitable work becomes available. Job Ready Sessions are ran on a reoccurring basis, contact your local Harvest Office to book in.
