Cherry Orchard General Hand

Payment: $16.50 plus 8% HP Location: Blenheim
Region: Marlborough/Blenheim/Picton Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

We are needing one more male worker who is able to work as a general hand on a cherry orchard, assisting getting the orchard ready for the fruiting season.  The position will require working on a hydra-ladder at times, so a good head for heights is a must.  Ideally you will be mechanically minded, so some previous farming experience would be a huge advantage.  The work is expected to last for at least 2 months so you would need to commit to at least 8 weeks to this job.

The orchard is located on the out-skirts of Blenheim township so your own vehicle would be advantageous, however, if you had a bike it would take around 15 minutes to cycle to and from our centrally located backpacker hostel. Please note this is a work/stay offer so you must be prepared to stay at our hostel whilst undertaking the work (discounted weekly rates apply)

If you are interested then please include all of the following information in your reply.

Name, phone number, gender and nationality.  An outline of your previous experience, confirmation of when you could start the job and details on your transport.
