Job Description
Margaret River Vintners has a number of open casual positions for the upcoming 2021 Vintage and are seeking motivated team players to fill the roles of Cellar Hands, Laboratory Technicians and Forklift Operators.

Positions will commence on Wednesday 27 January 2021 for an estimated 9-11 week period with a number of positions extending well beyond this (up to six months), depending on performance.

Margaret River Vintners is predominately a contract winemaking facility, producing both commercial and premium wines for our varied client base. We expect to crush approximately 7,500 tonnes in 2021.

The winery is positioned in the northern part of the Margaret River region, approximately 20 mins drive to the City of Busselton and 30 mins to the townships of Dunsborough & Margaret River.

Job Requirements
Previous experience in medium to large sized wineries is essential along with the requirement to work well within a multi-cultural team environment and the ability to follow safe working procedures.

Forklift operators must hold a current Australian Licence to Perform High Risk Work, class LF.

The winery operates 24 hours per day over the busiest weeks of the vintage period and applicants are expected to work shifts in duration of 10 hrs per day/6 days per week.

Pay conditions are as per the Australian Wine Industry Award, which includes overtime rates and shift loading allowance.

A Skype interview will be part of the selection process, and following initial review of applications received, interviews will commence in September.

The Margaret River region offers a host of world class activities and experiences and best of all, great weather in which to enjoy them.

COVID-19 Restrictions
Due to the current closure of the Western Australian border, at this stage applications will only be accepted from Australian residents, or international applicants who are currently in Western Australia, and who have a valid VISA allowing work until at least May 2021. We are hoping that borders to Western Australia will be open to interstate/international travel prior to the 2021 vintage, but at this stage we will only review applications from those who are currently located in Western Australia.

If you possess all the above criteria and would love to experience what our slice of the world has to offer then we want to hear from you!
