Registration – Initial Screening
You will be contacted as soon as possible by our recruitment team who will take all necessary details, carry out an initial assessment of your suitability for farm positions, register your details and put your application forward for consideration by our Regional Managers.
Regional Manager Interview
One of our Regional Managers will contact you for an in-depth discussion of your skills and experience to date and define your job requirements. All our Regional Managers have significant experience in the Agri sector and the benefit of an established network of current and new clients/farmers looking for staff. This enables us to successfully find and match the best job/farm to your needs.
Once we are confident of a possible match between you and a job role/farm position, your work history and other pertinent details will be put forward to our client/farmer. Please note none of your personal details will be shared with any of our clients/farms unless an invite to interview for the particular job role applied for is offered and, of course, we have your permission to do so. Following interview a short trial period / farm visit may be offered to you.
Support and guidance with regard to the provision of a suitable CV to clients/farmers, assistance with interview preparation, travel to interview, attendance at interview and feedback after interview will be provided by our Regional Managers and our recruitment support team.
Selection and Offer
Once the client/farmer have made their selection decision and chosen who they believe to be the best match to fill their job role, they notify our Regional Manager. The Regional Manager will then contact you and make the job offer to you, agree a start date and issue contracts/terms and conditions to both you and the client/farmer.
On an agreed date, our Regional Manager visits you at you new place of work and meets with you and the client/farmer. The Regional Manager will ensure explanation and completion of all necessary administration and induction procedures to include set up on our payroll system and the fortnightly timesheet/pay cycle, sign off of contracts and terms and conditions. This Regional Manager is then the key contact for you for all your queries, concerns and any feedback you have at any stage.
Your placement will be subject to the successful completion of a probationary period, the duration of which will be outlined in your contract. Payment will be made to you every fortnight following the completion and sign off of required timesheets.
