Packing Shed Supervisor – Kenley

Do you enjoy working as part of a dynamic team that assists our growers get their product from the farm to Australian tables, then this could be the job you have been looking for!

About the role:

A local Citrus grower is looking for expressions of interest for a Packing Shed Supervisor to start in the coming month to become an integral part of their team. No days will ever be the same in this role which will see you doing everything from managing a team of like-minded people to get the product from the orchard to market or overseas clients, to overseeing the quality of the fruit coming through the shed. People management skills will come naturally to you as you oversee a diverse group of people, often from different nationalities, to process the fruit coming in from the orchard in a timely and efficient manner. This role has the potential to last for 4-5 months with the possibility of on-going work after harvest has been completed.

The work is on a casual basis and is paid at award rates as defined by the Horticulture Award 2020 ($28.26/hr + super) and depending on production volumes, could involve working 5-6 days/week. Ideally, you would hold an Australian forklift licence although this is not essential. You will be inducted so that you are able to feel confident that you have the knowledge and skills to perform your job safely and effectively. This employer has other operations, so there is the option for there to be continuing work in other areas of the business once this role has finished. As mentioned, you will need to bring all of your people management attributes to the packing table but most of all, you will need a flexible attitude as Mother Nature can dictate at times how much work is available on certain days! You will also need to have a driver’s licence and your own reliable transport.

In your off time, the region provides plenty to keep you busy. The Murray River is right on your doorstep along with numerous lakes to take up your favourite water-based activities whether that be fishing or skiing. The region also boasts a number of fantastic restaurants and spectacular natural wonders to delight in.

So what are you waiting for, give us a call and get yourself set for your next employment adventure!
