Tasmanian farmers need workers to help with this year’s harvests. For information about how to link up with jobs, check out the Fruit Growers of Tasmania’s Harvest Opportunities page and Harvest Trail.

Within Tasmania, the State Government has also announced an Agricultural Workforce Resilience Package, providing $1.9 million over two years to attract and retain local workers.
The Package includes:
  • a local agricultural jobs campaign to encourage Tasmanians to consider new career options
  • support for industry resilience, promotion and targeted development of skills and training, including an industry-sponsored boost to regional transport​
  • extending the Farmpoint one-stop point of contact for primary producers
  • boosting Safe Farming Tasmania to ensure ​agricultural employees are workforce ready and workplaces are COVID-19 safe.
  • establishing a Roundtable with experience and knowledge of the Tasmanian agricultural industry and their local communities, to provide advice on Government projects and campaigns.
