The Harvest Trail Services aims to link workers, including Australian job seekers and working holiday makers, with seasonal harvest jobs to meet seasonal peaks in employer demand in locations across Australia.
Supporting the Harvest Trail Services is the Harvest Trail Information Service, which provides comprehensive up-to-date information about harvest work opportunities. Harvest Trail Information Service is a national service covering Australia in its entirety.
The Harvest Trail Services and the Harvest Trail Information Service will build on the Harvest Labour Services and the National Harvest Labour Information Service, which are currently delivered under the jobactive Deed and cease in June 2020.
The ‘Harvest Labour Services – Reforms to encourage Australian job seekers to take up seasonal work’ measure announced in the 2019–20 Budget is a $24.1 million investment over four years aimed at encouraging more Australian job seekers to take-up seasonal harvest work and move into ongoing work in horticulture and broad-acre crop farming. Information including the Consultation Paper about the Harvest Labour Services Reforms is available on the Employment Services Purchasing Information page.
Harvest Trail Services will be available in the 16 Harvest Areas.
