Calling all Working Holiday Visa holders (SSE Employer)!

Job Description

Do you have a Working Holiday Visa or SSE visa? Come and work in our Kiwifruit and Blueberry orchards in rural Patumahoe, South Auckland.

Are you looking for some short-term work up until Christmas? The Kiwifruit industry might have just the job for you. We are looking for casual workers to join our orchard teams.

We have the following casual work available now or coming up soon:


• Kiwifruit Vine training:

   o available now

   o Based at our Orchard at 82 Hulls Road, Te Kohanga (15 mins from Tuakau).

   o Earn $20.40 per hour (including holiday pay)

   o Vine training is tying young vines up strings to fill the canopy space. This helps to get fruit in a good position to be picked during harvest.


• Blueberry picking:

   o available now

   o Based at our Orchard on Klipsch Road (15 min from Pukekohe, Drury or Waiuku).

   o Staff are paid based on the amount of fruit picked rather than by the hour. The advantage of this system is that the more you pick the more you earn, so your hard work is well rewarded with potential high earnings.


• Flower picking:

   o Starting in November

   o You will be working outside in the orchard collecting flowers for our pollen mill.

   o The pay rate is per piece so it is a good opportunity to make a lot of money in a short period of time. We will teach you the most efficient flower picking techniques.
