Thinning isn't heavy work but involves plucking the excess fruit working off the trees from the ground as well as on ladders. It is essential candidates are comfortable working at heights as well as being able to handle 12 foot aluminium ladders. Training is provided but candidates that do well have generally done some form of outdoor work before or are sporty and coordinated.
Own transport is an advantage but there are some share ride options available as well.
