Our network of employers are always on the lookout for skilled and experienced tradesmen who can use their skills and apply themselves to general farm work as well. This includes welders, mechanics, machinery operators, carpenters, roofers, plumbers, electricians, boilermakers and trained cooks.
The trade skills programme allows you to use your workplace skills and experience in rural and outback Australia. It is designed for applicants with previous relevant education, training and work experience.
The main aim of these programmes is professional development. You can expect to significantly develop your professional and personal skills. They also give you the chance to see the world and experience something different, fun and challenging.
Farm work will also allow you to save for future travels. There are not many opportunities to spend money when you are working on an Australian farm.
