The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) is looking for enthusiastic farmers across Australia to participate as employers and hosts for young Australians participating in the AgCAREERSTART program.
AgCAREERSTART is a future focused industry program that engages with the next generation of agricultural workers. It is a great opportunity for the industry to attract a new cohort of young Australians to experience farm life and all it has to offer as a career pathway. Over 10 – 12 months, you will provide an on-farm job for a school leaver, or young Australian under 25. In your role
as host, you will encourage your employee to become immersed in the local community and gain an appreciation of the opportunities within the agriculture sector.
As part of the program, the participants receive funding and support to complete industry training of their choice, attend industry events, and a dedicated support team will assist in their transition to farm and their future career prospects.
NFF are looking for farms with a focus on HR and safety and who are committed to offering a positive and rewarding experience for a young Australian. All host farms will receive a $2,000 per participant Farm Safety Incentive payment from AgCAREERSTART.
