Looking for Short-Term Seasonal Work?
Each year between March and June we employ two or three extra staff at our plant in Biloela, Queensland to help us ship our fresh Australian mungbeans to the world.
Seasonal workers operate the grading and bagging machinery and the forklift and help keep the shed and yard clean. Staff are employed under the Food, Beverage and Tobacco Manufacturing Award and are paid on an hourly basis including superannuation and overtime where applicable. Seasonal staff generally work 8-9 hour shifts 5-6 days per week – mostly inside. We fund the training and assessment for staff to get a High Risk Work (Forklift) licence if they don’t already have one. Comfortable accommodation is available in a cottage walking distance from work and the centre of town. Biloela has around 5000 people, two grocery stores and two pubs. It’s only 90 min to Rockhampton, Gladstone or the closest beach at Tannum Sands, and you can be snorkelling at Great Keppel island or bushwalking at the Carnarvon Gorge in just over 3 hours.
If you are a Working Holiday Visa holder or are looking for a rural Gap Year, a 3-4 month stint at Australian Mungbean Company may be just what you are looking for. The work is eligible for the 88 days regional work required for WHV extension. If you are a recent school leaver, consider working from March to June then travelling or starting study in Semester II. Either way you’ll leave Biloela with a healthy bank account and something new to put on your resume. Introduce yourself to us by sending an email with your resume to and check out who you could be working with here.
