Seasonal workers from Tonga
The Seasonal Worker Programme offers seasonal labour to employers in the agricultural industry and employers in selected locations in the accommodation industry who can't meet their seasonal labour needs with local jobseekers. The programme offers access to a reliable, returning workforce able to return season after season.
WA employers using the scheme are impressed by the strong work ethic and general demeanour of the workers which can also lift the productivity of their backpacker workforce. The workers return home between seasons and many have used their income to improve their standard of living, for example having electricity connected at home.
The Seasonal Worker Programme is available to approved Australian horticulture employers and seasonal workers from eight Pacific island countries, bringing them together for 14 weeks to six months seasonal work. Employers may manage the arrangements themselves or use approved labour hire companies.
