What Is HTS?

Harvest Trail Services is a free service and links workers with seasonal harvest jobs across Australia. Harvest work in Australia involves a variety of jobs like fruit or vegetable picking, packing, pruning and planting. The type of work varies between locations and the time of year. Jobs are available in harvest areas in most Australian states and territories. Jobs are seasonal and can range from just a few weeks to six months or more.

Is This Right For You?

Harvesting of fruit and vegetable crops can involve working individually, in pairs or teams. You will need to be physically fit as the job can involve climbing ladders, standing, kneeling, laying or sitting while moving through the crop or undertaking a range of duties in a harvesting team. Most harvesting jobs are done outdoors. Crops are collected in various ways and can be placed into buckets, tubs or lugs. They can be cut, clipped or picked and placed into a bag strapped to the shoulders. Start and finish times will vary depending on the type of harvest work. Be prepared to start work early in the morning, and for some crops, late into the day. There are other activities required for crop production including pruning and trimming vines and trees, thinning and trimming flowers and bunches and general crop maintenance work.

Your Obligations

If you are working in the horticulture industry in either a permanent or casual capacity, your employer must abide by the Horticulture Award 2010. Minimum rates of pay are regulated for all industries and you can check the correct rates of pay and employment conditions with the Fair Work Ombudsman – http://www.fairwork.gov.au/. It is a requirement of law that all workers are covered by insurance for workplace injury. This insurance is paid by the employer. Make sure that you are properly instructed in all aspects of the work before you start work. Take care as it is your responsibility to follow all health and safety instructions and to report any injury immediately to the farmer.

Do You Have Any Questions?

What Is The Work Like?
Harvest work can be physically demanding. You don’t need special skills to be a harvest worker, but employers may look for certain qualities, including physical strength and stamina. Tasks for harvest workers can involve climbing ladders, walking through fields, constant bending or operating heavy machinery. Harvest workers need to be strong enough to lift heavy tubs or bags of produce and tools, and be able to do repetitive tasks. Harvesting of fruit and vegetable crops can involve working individually, in pairs or teams. Most harvesting jobs are done outdoors. Crops are collected in various ways and can be placed into buckets, tubs or lugs. They can be cut, clipped or picked and placed into a bag strapped to the shoulders. Start and finish times will vary depending on the type of harvest work. Be prepared to start work early in the morning, and for some crops, late into the day. There are other activities required for crop production including pruning and trimming vines and trees, thinning and trimming flowers and bunches and general crop maintenance work.
