About Burlington Berries

Established in 2012, Burlington Berries (Burlington) is the largest privately owned berry farm in Tasmania. Located 45 mins from Launceston and 2 hours from Hobart, they can be found just outside of the local town, Cressy. Burlington is a rapidly expanding and dynamic family-owned farm which currently has 47 hectares of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries under production!

Burlington is a busy place to be! Throughout the year they focus on planting, growing, and monitoring crops, and maintaining and sustaining the farm infrastructure. Come November, the crops are ready to be harvested and they will be producing perfect berries up until May. This is the busiest time of year for Burlington, and to meet harvesting needs they employ a significant number of staff including Australians, Working Holiday Makers, and Pacific Islanders through the Seasonal Worker Program.

About the Opportunity

Burlington is looking for a motivated and flexible HR and Recruitment Coordinator to join their close-knit team. 

Reporting to the Business Manager, your primary responsibilities will include managing the day-to-day recruitment and full on-boarding process from start to finish. 

Other responsibilities may include (but will not be limited to):

  • Running recruitment strategies and advertising campaigns based on seasonal profiles;
  • Screening and following up on potential candidates;
  • Liaising with candidate enquiries, running inductions, on-boarding, WH&S and onsite training;
  • Updating our employee database as required;
  • Monitoring social media campaigns;
  • Following recruitment policies and procedures, and identifying ways to improve or adapt them; and
  • Liaising with local businesses regarding accommodation.
About You

To be successful in this role you will need to be confident in onboarding large numbers of staff during the harvest season. You will have great professional communication skills (both written and verbal), an excellent phone manner, and be a people-person, with the ability to adapt to different needs as required.

The harvest commences in late October, and you will be recruiting based upon a 7-month labour plan.

Burlington needs someone who is flexible, and can hit the ground running. The ideal candidate will have high attention to detail and be friendly, approachable and self-motivated. You will use initiative and take the opportunity to think outside the box, when required.

The successful candidate must hold a current driver's license and have access to reliable transport.

About the Benefits

For your hard work and dedication, you will be rewarded with an attractive salary package (negotiable based on skills and experience) plus super and extended leave options.

Burlington is passionate about career development and personal growth for staff and provides many opportunities for training and development. This position offers potential for career progression and would suit someone looking to take full ownership of a role.
