We understand that COVID-19 is having an impact on primary industries, as well as the hospitality and tourism sectors, to secure previously used workers. The simplest way to find workers is to:
Contact a recruitment company
Recruitment companies in your region will help you find workers.
Advertise your jobs
To connect with those looking for work, advertise your jobs with the relevant job boards.
Services to support you with seasonal staff
If you need services to help with your seasonal workers, Harvest Labour Services - MADEC can provide inductions, immigration checks, ID cards and more.
Financial incentives available
You may be able to access financial assistance up to $6,000 to help you relocate for short-term seasonal work, or a job in regional South Australia. Businesses may be able to access financial assistance to support quarantine requirements for the employment of Pacific Island workers.
As employers, make sure you are aware of, and are keeping up to date on, the latest information related to seasonal work during COVID-19 for your business and employees including seasonal workers.
