Seeka Australia Pty Ltd is an approved employer under the Pacific Australia Labour Mobility Scheme. Now, the company is reaching out to Fiji for assistance in addressing its labor shortages in the horticulture sector.
General Manager of Operations, Jonathan Van Popering and the People and Workforce Manager, Megan Pellegrino paid a courtesy call to the Permanent Secretary for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations, Osea Cawaru earlier this week. Cawaru thanked the employer for making the effort to visit Fiji and meet the team in order to find potential Fijian workers for additional employment prospects in Australia’s horticulture sector.
Pellegrino says the selected 60 Fijian workers will be working in fruit picking, packing, planting, and general labor on Kiwi fruit farms, Pear Orchards and other types of fruits that are in season. The company is expected to recruit more registered Fijians in the near future as it expands its operations.
