Job Description
Reporting to the Winemaker the successful applicants will have had at least three (3) year’s vintage experience, significant forklift operating experience and a current Australian Licence to Perform High Risk Work (Forklift License). Computer skills, a mechanical aptitude and a strong focus on attention to detail are essential as is supervisory experience and the ability to follow instructions with safety of self and others as a primary consideration.

About the Winery: Kayena Winery is in Tasmania, north of Launceston in the renowned Tamar Valley and is a leading producer of quality cool climate Tasmanian wines. The winery draws grapes from a wide range of sites throughout Tasmania, processing approximately 3,000 tonnes annually.

This is a great opportunity to work with a variety of high quality still and sparkling wines whilst working in a great team. Penalty rates and $$$$$’s towards accommodation will be offered to the successful applicant.

It’s important to note: Due to the current closure of the Australian borders, at this stage applications will only be accepted from Australian residents, or international applicants who are currently in Australia and who have a valid work Visa until at least May 2021. We are hoping the borders between New Zealand and Tasmania will be open prior to vintage, but at this stage we will only accept applications from New Zealand citizens who are currently in Australia.

Support Available: Although the Tasmanian border is currently closed, vintage workers have been deemed to be essential workers by the Tasmanian government, and therefore you should have no significant issues getting to Tasmania. However, if you are coming from a 'hotspot' for covid-19 at the commencement of vintage, there may be a requirement for testing and/or isolation. If this situation arises, we will work with you to determine the course of action, to get you working as quickly and safely as possible.

Job Requirements
Essential Requirements:

• At least three (3) year’s vintage experience
• Supervisory skills/experience
• Strong attention to detail
• Australian High Risk Forklift Licence and significant forklift operating experience
• Driver’s licence and access to a vehicle will be important (given the remote location of the winery)
• Sense of humour/fun

Please forward a copy of your CV and cover letter via email using the 'APPLY FOR JOB’ link above.
