Harvest Labour Services


Harvest Labour Services and the National Harvest Labour Information Service connect workers with growers in the horticultural industry across Australia at harvest time.

Access to these services is not limited to people receiving income support payments.

Harvest Labour Services link workers with jobs picking fruit and other crops in rural and regional Harvest Trail areas.

If you are a horticultural grower, you can get help finding harvest workers from jobactive Harvest Labour Services. They screen workers and match them with growers. You can find a local Harvest Labour Services provider through the provider search on the jobactive website.

You can also advertise your job vacancies online through the Harvest Trail or through the jobactive Employer app. 

If you are looking for work, Harvest work is available throughout the year when there aren’t enough local workers to harvest fruit and vegetable crops. Anyone who is legally entitled to work in Australia is eligible to be placed into harvest work. Find more about how you can access harvest work.

The National Harvest Labour Information Service:

  • provides comprehensive, up-to-date information about harvest work vacancies on the Harvest Trail Website
  • coordinates the National Harvest Guide, which provides information about harvest work opportunities, working conditions, transport and accommodation around Australia.
