Clients

Rural Enterprises have been assisting us to find seasonal workers for a couple of years and we have been especially happy with the service and support they have provided.  The staff are always friendly and efficient.  The background checks and references they complete for potential staff are very thorough.  We have been impressed with the staff that we have recruited from Rural Enterprises and they have done a great job of finding candidates that are well matched to suit our needs.  We would definitely recommend Rural Enterprises to anyone seeking assistance with employing seasonal staff.  Faye, Cascade WA.


Rural Enterprises is our Farming Employment Agent of choice. They are big enough to be always available and small enough to know us personally. We have had many seasonal staff placed through them over the past 15 years at least. The team can gauge and explain a candidate well. Their procedures are reliable and efficient so resumes come to us quickly when requested. Although they have a replacement policy if the person was not right for our position, we have had suitable people placed with us and we have not had to utilise this. Lisa & Kirk, Cascade WA.


I needed reliable experienced staff at very short notice and found the team at Rural Enterprises to be very proactive in sourcing and vetting staff for me, and doing it swiftly. The two staff members they found me are just superb. I would recommend Rural Enterprises to anyone looking for decent staff who are who they say they are and have the relevant experience. Great job guys, thanks. Sam, Pingrup WA.


Our business has been looking for higher quality candidates for quite some time. I stumbled across Rural Enterprises’ website in 2015 and was provided with two excellent operators for the picking season. In 2016, we were provided with two more excellent operators as well as new permanent staff. The reason I believe that Rural Enterprises are different from other agencies we have tried is that they thoroughly research and reference each candidate before they are passed on, with our wishes in mind. Their price structure is also better than most other agencies we have tried. I would not hesitate in recommending their recruitment services to others.  Ben, Sunland Ag QLD.

Your timely responses and updates were greatly appreciated. I look forward to future dealings when I am the one looking to fill roles in my team. Best regards, Jock Craig (Australia).


I was very happy with the service provided by rural enterprises. Everything was very professional and they have a great client base to choose from. I hadn't used any other agencies before utilising rural enterprises services but it gives great piece of mind when rural agencies can provide feedback on particular farms. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them in the future. Keith (Ireland).


Thank you Rural Enterprises you for the good work you have done in securing me a position for the 2016 harvest. Rural Enterprises are professional with a customer focus. I have also found there is a high level of respect from the farmers for the comprehensive service you provide. I have no hesitation is recommending Rural Enterprises.. Brett (Australia).


Using Rural Enterprises was the simplest and easiest processes of all in their industry. Knowing their clients personally they can advise and use the years of experience to place you in the best suited job for you. Great people to deal with and I highly recommend their services for anyone looking for work in WA. Many thanks, Sam Cooke (UK).


The staff at Rural Enterprises were extremely helpful towards finding work that suited my partner and I. As we are from Melbourne, we appreciated the effort they put in to communicate with us and keep us posted with what was going on. We highly recommend Rural Enterprises to others and we are looking forward to our next working experience. Jeremy Guglielmini (Australia).


Rural Enterprise was an excellent choice to find seeding work in Australia. They found a Job for myself and a friend on the same farm which we were told would not be easy,  with no stress on our side. They listened to exactly what we wanted for work and delivered us exactly that, we wouldn't use any other agency.  Rural enterprise are easy to deal with and take a real concern in following up to ensure every things running smoothly and are happy to help find extra work if required. Awesome team thanks! Graeme (NZ).


A very good agency to go through! Put my CV on the website and within hours I was in contact with my employer. Made everything so much easier, and the team is always checking up on me making sure work is still going well. Will definitely use rural enterprises in the future. Leith Gilmore (NZ).


Rural enterprises has a quick process to apply for any jobs. Since I didn't have any experience I thourght it would be a lot harder to get a job but Rural Enterprises know their client base so knew who would be willing to give me a shot. A very quick turn over and professional business. Emma McIntosh (NZ).


I was looking for farm work all over Australia using various websites. Since i had only little experience with tractors, it wasn't an easy search. But Rural Enterprises called me to tell me about a farm in WA and I said yes. Two months later, they found a second job for me in the same area.  I had a friend who asked me if my employers are looking for another employee so i told him to call Rural Enterprises and two days later he had two offers to choose from. Rural Enterprises gave me a great opportunity to get into the farms industry and if i return to Australia, I'll definitely use their service again.  Neri (Israel).


Rural Enterprises were very effective in their service, got me job offers after just few hours, very good. Compared to other agancies, had more job offers, and more variety of work. 3. Very kind and helpful, would not rest till you find something. And after you have found a job, they ask you how are you, and how is work. Very good and warm, easy to contact them.  Regards, Stav (Israel).


Rural Enterprises were really easy to deal with, putting my wife and I into the perfect job placements as header and chaser driver for the 2016 harvest season. Fantastic clients and a professional, easy to get along with attitude made Rural Enterprises a standout in what they do. After working for their clients for the 2016 harvest season, Wendy and I wanted to give the employer the praise the deserve - fantastic meals, low stress approach and easy to get along with nature made them the best employers we have ever worked for and are a benchmark as rural/seasonal employers. Dan & Wendy (Australia).


Having begun my search for farm work using a different agent, which failed, I was slightly skeptical but also very desperate when I contacted Rural Enterprises. They were very reassuring, and the professional and timely responses made me only realise how unprofessional the other agent had been. I was in my position within days of contacting. I'd recommend Rural Enterprises for their professional and friendly attitude towards jobseekers, and for their continued contact to ensure you're doing okay. I would trust them if I have issues to help me correct them, and would use them in the future for employment. Amie (UK).


I have tried many different agencies for finding a seasonal job. Usually this has meant answering pages full of questions about my previous experiences and the type of job I am looking for. Most of the time this is the end of communication with the agency and I never hear anything else from them again. I was positively suprised when Rural Enterprises got back to me and after a long talk they suggested more positions for me to consider, kept me up to date with news regarding my application and had a good chat with my previous employers. The outcome was a grain harvest job that was suitable for my skills and benefited both me and the farmer I worked for. I really enjoyed my time there and the people I met. I highly recommend Rural Enterprises because they will do their best to find a job that suits you well. Kelli Seiton (Estonia).


Rural Enterprises have been fantastic from day dot.  Not only did the team do everything they could to learn about me and my experiences, but they strived to find the job that best suited what I wanted as well as making sure that I was placed with a suitable employer.  When I first looked into seeding I applied with Rural Enterprises as well as another agency. But with little response from the other agency and an almost immediate response from Rural Enterprises I felt I was in the best hands.  Every contact with the team is fast and efficient as well as super friendly. And as soon as the seeding season was finished, they were in contact to make sure everything went great. As well as that they were offering further positions beyond seeding and through to harvest as the season was coming to an end.  I could not recommend them enough.  James Wilson (NZ).


Thanks to Rural Enterprises they have made my childhood dream of driving big tractors come true. Very professional and helpful I was employed within two days of applying. Highly recommend them for placement! Paul Harvey (Australia).


I was recommended by another farmer to use rural agencies to get a harvest job having not used an agency before. I too would recommend them as there staff work really hard to first find out your expertise and personal requirements and then to find you work. At one stage I didn't think I'd get work as I was only about to start a month into harvest but the guys at rural enterprises persisted and I now wouldn't use any other agency but them! Rory (Australia).


Rural Enterprises were exceptional in matching me with the job I was qualified for.   In comparison to others rural enterprises were much more proactive in finding employment for me. I would recommend them for their friendliness and professional approach to their work. During my employment there were two follow up phone calls to check on my employment . Thanks rural enterprises for a job well done. Peter Miiller (Australia).


Rural Enterprises provided an effective experience that made my transition to work in Perth very easy. Having direct contact with Rural Enterprises and my employer meant I could actually plan my work experience. I would recommend Rural Enterprises to anyone wanting an excellent work experience, especially at the 11th hour.  Jarrod Hedley (NZ).


We are a partner (French Canadian and French) that have appreciated Rural Enterprises services. Travelling in Aussie, from NSW to Tasmania and WA, we had experiences with some work agencies in different provinces. The difference with Rural Enterprises is that they do take care from point A (canditate applications) to point B (contact the employer) such has letting us know if we are the right canditate for the job by socialising with you on the phone. We really appreciate their honesty and the time they took to care for all the steps towards getting the job. Thank you Rural Enterprises. Caroline & Harvey (Canada).


I find Rural Enterprises to be very effective and have an excellent recruitment service. When I got in touch with rural enterprises they managed to get a job for me within a week. Excellent staff to deal with and have people at heart. I will recommend anyone looking for a farm job to deal with them as an employment agency. I will be in touch with Rural Enterprises next season for another job assignment. Godfrey (NZ).


I found yourself and the team very helpful by matching me up with a quality employer in a very short space of time. Very professional attitude and would not hesitate to approach Rural Enterprises in the future. Much appreciated, Scott Robinson (Australia).


Rural Enterprises provided a prompt organised service and we had contact with potential employers within a couple of days.  It worked really well for us, giving us options we would have otherwise missed.  Many thanks, Graeme and Connie (Australia).


Rural Enterprises have been fantastic. You have kept me up to date with your efforts, encouraged me and replied to phone calls and emails very quickly. I will be recommending you to others and will be in contact again for sure. Dave (Australia).
