Looking for work? South Australia’s agriculture industry needs you! From pickers to packers, processors and planters, there are a variety of agricultural seasonal jobs on offer in South Australia’s regions. With COVID-19 having an impact on primary industries securing workers, we've created Seasonal Jobs SA as a temporary initiative to bring workers and employers together to help keep SA’s supply chains flowing.

Why this work matters

Agriculture is one of our state’s proudest and most essential industries, from our world-renowned wines to the farm-to-table ingredients that nourish South Australian families.

And with borders closed, our industry is calling on South Australians to register as pickers, packers, processors and helpers to keep our food supply chains flowing and our regions thriving, so we can all continue to enjoy the food and fiber we grow.

If you are looking for a job, there are opportunities for seasonal jobs in South Australia’s regions.

Working in primary industries will help our agricultural industry continue to operate and support local communities, while providing jobs for South Australians.

Primary industries grow our state and regions

Our diverse primary industries are spread across the state's regions in the grains, livestock, horticulture, wine, forestry, seafood, and dairy sectors.

South Australia’s primary industries and agribusiness supported 115,723 jobs and contributed $15.9 billion to the state’s economy in 2018–19, with revenue of $15.2 billion.

You can help keep South Australia and our regions growing.
