We require physically fit and hard working individuals for the upcoming kiwifruit picking season. Estimated starting date is March 24th depending on fruit maturity and may be on and off initially. Work is weather dependant on a day by day basis (wet weather means no work) so finishing date varies though usually around the end of May.
Kiwifruit are picked from vines just above head height into a bag supported from the shoulders weighing up to 20kg when full. As such you should be physically fit and comfortable spending the day outdoors and on your feet. Teams are usually made up of 15-20 people who work around each other all day so a good attitude and team spirit will go a long way towards making the experience enjoyable!
Base rate is $16.50/hour with potential to increase with speed and quality.
Must be eligible to work in NZ. Must have own transportation and accomodation though we may be able to host staff with camper vans on site by arrangement.
Contact Josh or Jaime. Thanks!
