Leanna J Consulting

About Us

Our broadacre cropping farm based at Wool Bay on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula is a proudly family-owned operation which blends our values of our care for the land with progressive farming techniques. Our medium-sized cropping program maintains a cereals and legumes rotation and a small amount of livestock, supported by modern machinery, technology and approaches to efficient practices.

The Opportunity

We have an opportunity for a farm hand with a passion for the land to join our team. While farm hand experience and a broad range of skills complementary to a farming role is important, we’re much more interested in your willingness to learn and develop in the role and desire to build a long career with our team.

While no two days will look the same in this role, your responsibilities will span all areas of farm and farm maintenance including:

  • operation of light and heavy vehicles, machinery and equipment including tractors, trucks, air seeder, header, spreader, sprayer, rollers, chaser bin, augers and small motors
  • regular servicing and repairs of machinery and equipment to ensure the efficiency of our operations
  • use of modern farming technology required for paddock operations and record-keeping
  • monitoring and repair of water infrastructure, fences, sheds and other farm property
  • maintain clean and tidy vehicles for the benefit of the whole team.

Who are you?

Our successful candidate will be familiar with the needs of a successful farming environment and comfortable with all aspects of joining a family farm team. You’ll value a positive and energetic working environment and have a strong motivation to be involved with all aspects of our operations. While not essential, a mechanical mind, engineering / welding skills and an HC drivers licence will be highly regarded.

The Offer

In return for your skills and high-quality attitude, you’ll be rewarded with a generous hourly rate with additional benefits available for the right person. Supported training and development opportunities exist for enthusiastic applicants with limited farming experience who are seeking longevity in the role and career growth.

If this sounds like the opportunity for you, please submit a cover letter and resume outlining your experience and why you’d be the perfect candidate for the role. Applications can be sent to recruitment@leannaj.com.au by Monday 29th July 2024.
