Hi there! We're looking to employ 7-8 keen people to join our small apple and pear picking team as fruit-pickers, with harvest, starting approximately the 3rd week of February 2021 and continuing through to late March. We are a small family owned & managed business and have grown quality apples and pears for over 100 years. We're located close to the lovely village of Mapua & centrally located between Motueka and Richmond. Being a smaller business means we work closely with our staff in a positive, fair and friendly environment.
Our base wage rate is $19.00 per hour (plus 8% holiday pay on top) but we also operate an incentive remuneration scheme which provides the opportunity to reward productive and motivated staff , with a productivity bonus paid for good output and quality picking, while guaranteeing the minimum wage. Reliable, conscientious and productive staff will be rewarded for their effort.
So, we offer you the opportunity to maybe try something different, to work outdoors over the summer in a lovely region & earn good wages if you have the right attitude! Previous fruit picking experience is fantastic but not essential as we will provide full training but you must be prepared to work off a ladder. We have some affordable orchard accommodation, with shared facilities, available.
If you're interested in applying or have any questions, please get in touch & tell us about yourself, provide a couple of previous work reference contacts and give us your phone number please. Thanks!
