棉花收获s across Queensland and New South Wales

The thriving Australian cotton industry employs more than 12,000 people in a wide range of roles and, in an average year, our Aussie cotton growers produce enough of the crop to clothe 500 million people. The majority of our cotton farms are located in the inland regions of NewSouth Wales and southern Queensland, and almost 90% of Australian cotton businesses are family-owned farms. Agri Labour Australia has now been partnering with Aussie cotton farmers and gins for more than a decade, and in that period of time we’ve proudly placed more than 1,500候选人在这些国家的棉花收获工作中 - 主要是繁华的棉花杜松子酒。

While the hours can be reasonably long and the work extremely busy,cotton-harvest jobscan also be a highly rewarding employment option, with many roles offering terrific pay rates and permanent work opportunities to high-performing and appropriately skilled staff.Given the extreme volume of work, cotton gins will typically work using a standardised roster – for example with staff working 6 days on, 2 days off, with 12-hour shifts, and this roster will continue uninterrupted until the cotton season ends.

Think the cotton industry could be the right opportunity for you? Here’s what you need to know about working in the cotton harvest

If you’re considering applying for a cotton harvest job, it’s crucial to understand what exactly cotton is and how it’s used across the world.

As a natural fibre that grows on a shrub, cotton is a multi-use food and fibre crop with a plant that’s a leafy, green shrub. Almost all parts of the cotton plant are used in some way, including the lint, cottonseed, linters, stalks and seed hulls. Cotton’s a soft, absorbent and breathable natural fibre that’s most often spun into yarn or thread.

Australian cotton has an outstanding global reputation, and is ideally suited to colour application processes as it offers crisp, white lint, low breakages and stoppages, good efficiency and excellent uniformity of yarn.
