Auscott operates with a permanent staff complement of around 115 but Auscott’s business is very seasonal with work requirements typically ramping up sharply from February through to August. To meet this demand, Auscott employs many casual workers during its harvest and ginning seasons.
Casual staff roles are filled from the local community and temporary internationals. This seasonal employment provides value to the local community through work opportunities and economic boost from international workers residing in the community.
Auscott invites prospective casual workers to register their interest in working for Auscott during upcoming seasons. A range of casual work opportunities are available in farming operations, weighbridges, ginning, warehousing and logistics and classing.
Auscott periodically employs trainees especially in its farming operations and has an active apprentice program in its workshops.
