The rapidly-changing COVID-19 crisis and restrictions on the movement of people is having a significant impact on the agricultural labour force.
The FoodAllianceWA is a network of agrifood industry associations, including the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, who have come together to assist the State Government address labour shortage issues across the sector.
The McGowan Government has supported a range of workforce initiatives including a new website to connect workers with potential regional employers, an online searchable employment database for skilled workers under 30, and additional resources directed into industry-based career programs.
The new website – http://www.jobsinwafoodandag.com – will allow workers seeking employment in regional WA to register their interest and connect with regional employers, labour hire companies and recruitment businesses looking for casual, skilled and unskilled workers.
