Based in the heart of Bundaberg along Electra Street, the office provides assistance to local growers with their labour needs by sourcing Australian residents and visa holders who are eager to engage in harvest work.
Servicing the Wide Bay region which also includes an outreach site at Gayndah, Latarah Heming (above), Harvest Office Manager, travels between the two offices to assist our clients in both areas. The team are ready to assist you with your needs during the imminent avocado and citrus season, in particular with picking and packing roles.
Latarah is passionate about offering a no-cost service that helps growers meet their labour demands, and assists workers with sourcing employment. Latarah has lived in the Bundaberg region for 18 years and has previously worked closely with local unemployed residents to gain meaningful employment.
Latarah is excited to see the expansion and development of Harvest Trail Services in the region. This will be the Harvest Office’s first citrus and avocado season.
The area is commonly known as the ‘Food Bowl’ with a large amount of crops being produced in the region including macadamias, blueberries, dragon fruit, ginger, basil, lychees, mangoes, pineapples, tomatoes, capsicums, sweet potatoes and watermelons, just to name a few. There are a multitude of harvest opportunities available, and with strategic planning workers are able to transition between each crop to remain in employment at all times.
With Government funding available to relocate for temporary work opportunities, now is the time for workers to discover the area. With beautiful beaches, numerous leisure activities, an abundance of National Parks and historical sites, there is plenty to keep the adventurous worker busy outside of working hours.
The Harvest Office is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 5.00pm.
