Want to do summer harvest work but lack the means to get there? We can help.
A lack of reliable transport has been identified as a reason which prevents Tasmanians from applying for seasonal work opportunities. Most producers are located outside of Tasmania's main country towns, away from regular public transport routes, and most seasonal jobs require workers to be at the jobsite early in the morning before early bus services arrive.
Complex problems require flexible solutions
Supported by the Tasmanian Government through the Agricultural Workforce Resilience Package, Fruit Growers Tasmania is trialling a flexible transport program aimed at helping people interested in doing harvest work to get to and from their worksite.
Make it work for you
If getting to and from the workplace is an issue for you, why not talk to your employer or Fruit Growers Tasmania today about accessing the Seasonal Worker Transport Pilot? Services are flexible and you only pay for the services you agree to use.
Best of all, transport costs will be shared between you, your employer and the Tasmanian Government.
