Tree Planters

Job Description

Looking for people to plant trees 2019 season.

The work is medium/ high physically and would suit people used to working outdoors in challenging conditions - both weather ( wet, muddy, cold, windy) and sometimes difficult terrain. Involves carrying a box of trees, weighing up to 10kg in a frame on your back and digging a hole with a spade. Try searching tree planting on YOUTUBE.

Probably comparable work would be fencing, shearing or maybe contract fruit picking.

Pay is start on minimum wage, with the ability to earn more based on number of trees planted to an acceptable standard. 90 day trial conditions could be used if anyone does not show sufficient improvement after 10 days planting.

We will know how quickly people can progress by watching for a few days. People who do put the effort in and are able to pick up the job quickly will gross $200 + per day. Sometimes it can take a full season to get to this level, but can be picked up much quicker - everyone is different.

We do not provide accommodation but can give options for prospective employees.

If a job is in an area that with travel makes the day too long we may provide accommodation in that area. 

Travel provided from agreed pickup points, possibly door to door - especially if more than one person at the same address.

Workers will need to provide hard toe lace up boots, as well as hi viz, rain gear and warm clothes.

Need to be able to work in NZ legally, provide visa details, New Zealand I.R.D number as well as bank account to have wages banked into.

Planting season started 1 may and will go through to late September - early October.
