Call for seasonal & regional workers

Dec 18, 2020

Want real work? Where you can earn a living and make a valuable contribution to a local community?

Want real experience? Something great for your resume, that will also provide you with a unique and memorable personal experience?

Right now, essential industries across regional South Australia are in urgent need of workers to fill thousands of seasonal and regional workforce vacancies.

From fruit picking and farm hands, to waitstaff and tour guides, over coming months there will be an urgent need for staff due to a reduced pool of available workers to undertake seasonal agricultural work and regional jobs.

If you’ve ever thought about exploring short-term work opportunities in our regions – or know someone up for a real experience – now is the time.

Connect to seasonal and regional jobs
The refreshed Regional Work SA website is now live to connect people seeking work with jobs available.

The website shines a spotlight on jobs that are in demand across the agriculture, tourism and hospitality sectors.

Connect with recruiters, job boards and find out information on a range South Australian Government and Commonwealth incentive programs available to support relocation, travel and accommodation costs. You may be eligible for financial incentives of up to $6,000 to help you relocate for short-term agricultural work, or for students taking up a job in regional South Australia.

They’ve also simplified how you can connect with regional recruiters. Sign up and they'll pass your details on to recruiters with work in demand.

Looking for staff?
COVID-19 is having an impact on the ability of seasonal and regional workforce employers to secure workers, with the number of interstate and international working holidaymakers significantly reduced this year.

If you are looking for staff, the Regional Work SA website will connect you with recruiters and job boards to advertise your vacancies. The site also provides information on support services available, as well as financial assistance to help attract workers and support quarantine requirements for the employment of Pacific Island workers.

Advertise your jobs on the promoted jobs board – including Seek, Gumtree, Harvest Trail, MADEC and the Backpacker Job Board and use the hashtag #RegionalWorkSA when promoting vacancies on job boards and social media channels. This will help job seekers easily connect with your advertisements.

Find real opportunities
Work on the land or in regional areas has not stopped as a result of COVID-19.

South Australia’s regional agriculture, tourism and hospitality sectors need a new team of workers to meet an urgent demand for seasonal and regional work.
