What is seasonal work?

Seasonal work is work that's available during particular times and seasons of the year.

Seasonal work is available with South Australia’s agriculture, food and wine businesses who are looking for workers to help them meet critical needs on farms, in packing sheds and in food and beverage production.

What types of jobs are available?

There are many jobs available across primary industries for both skilled and unskilled workers. These jobs may include fruit and vegetable picking, working as a farm hand or forestry planting.

Due to circumstances, including travel restrictions, related to COVID-19, our State’s primary producers have been impacted in securing seasonal workers.
