Flexibility required with the working days over the weeks as the workloads change. Hours can be discussed & there is flexibility around your start and finish times if you are interested.


The role has been offered Part Time work in the past a bit later into the season, which is usually two or three days a week, but this is not guaranteed and subject to the client's requirements this year.


Please only apply if you drive and have your own guaranteed transport to get to work due to rural location.
