Ag Workforce
Industry Level Sponsor

AG WORKFORCE with crop

AG Workforce started nearly 10 years ago when an opportunity was identified to supply staff to the rural industry as the mining industry was siphoning many away with the allure of substantial pay packets (but they certainly don’t have the lifestyle!). Today we supply staff Australia wide in all areas of agriculture, in any position from the Station Hand to the Station Manager and everything in between. Agriculture is the only industry we cater to and all of our Recruiters have a rural background. Please feel free to make contact with any of our Recruiters for your staffing needs. Jane Sale from Yougawalla Station (one of our clients) was kind enough to grant us an opportunity to be a sponsor on her website and we are truly thankful to connect with the livestock industry.
