    Information

    I am an Agricultural Engineer from Córdoba, Argentina. I plan to spend around 9 months during 2019 working in Australia, and I am therefore seeking for a job. To start with, I graduated in December 2016 as an Agricultural Engineer (equivalent to Agronomist) and since then I have worked for two different companies. I worked from April 2017 to March 2018 for the Catholic University of Cordoba (the University I graduated from) as a Resident of Agricultural Establishments. This Institution owns around 4000 hectares of arable land on which it performs extensive cropping; and 3500 hectares of grazing land where it runs a 5-breed seedstock operation. As a resident, I performed the everyday tasks of a mixed operation, such as facilities maintenance and repair, animal feeding, husbandry, vaccination, castration and general care. Furthermore, I also performed more specific tasks such as crop scouting, pesticide prescription and spraying, seeding and harvest control and campaing planning among others. In May 2018 I started working at Tecnocampo S.A., a farming company owned by my family, as Technical Responsible of Production. In that position, I was responsible for all the processes and tasks required for extensive crop production (corn, soybeans, wheat, chickpeas, beans among others) in certain farms (around 2000 hectares). I was in charge of campaing planning, seeding, crop scouting, pesticide prescription, harvest control, soil sampling, analysis and fertilizer prescription and logistics. I also designed and conducted field trials and processed GIS information and statistics (for example, yield maps). It is mainly dryland but I had around 110 hectares of chickpeas under central pivot irrigation last winter. Our summer crops are corn (regular, popcorn, flint corn); different beans (mung, navy, black, LRK, DRK) and soybeans. In the winter we produce mainly chickpeas for export, and also some wheat. In our area, we get most of the rain during the summer and none during the winter, so corn and soybeans are our main crops as well as chickpeas.The company farms around 50.000 hectares around the country and runs an Aberdeen Angus seedstock operation. I am able to work outdoors as well as in the office. As regards my personality, I am a proactive person who is always looking forward to solving the next problem. I like to put thought to everything I do. I love to work in teams, discussing every decision and supporting each other. I consider myself a kind, tranquil and respectful person. Finally, I enjoy very much working outdoors on the field. My goal in Australia is to spend some time abroad, learning about how farming is performed and applying my knowledge from Argentina in the Australian environment.

    Information

    Bill Rutherford & Sheila Cunningham We are a mature, reliable and responsible couple, working together according to our individual strengths and experience. We made the decision to spend our last few working years working in different places as a way to see more of our world. Bill was born and raised in Central Otago, NZ, taking over the family farm upon the death of his father just after he left school. He has remained self employed for the majority of his working life. Sheila has a background in the military and engineering. In general Bill is the hands-on person while Sheila handles all admin and organisation but Sheila is also quite capable of stepping into and enjoying a practical role as required. We have clean NZ HT licences (4FRW and 2FRTW) , which translated to Vic LR and MR as well as forklift, loader, motorcycle and quad-bike experience . We both have many years experience working independently, not requiring any external motivation to get the job done in a timely and efficient manner. Neither of us are clock watchers and, given the option, will complete a job rather than come back to it the next day. We are clearly aware of the necessity to work with the weather and the season. We are of course willing to be drug tested. Bill & Sheila

    'We had Will a couple of years ago, driving the air seeder for us. He was very proficient, it was a bit different to what he was used to, we run big machinery, large scale broad acre farming. He took it on really well and picked it up quickly, he was a valued member of the team. We had older machinery too that required a fair bit of work and maintenance, I have very high standards and expectations and Will adhered to them. He was always willing to listen and did things the way I wanted them done with no problems. Communication for me is critical, it just doesn’t work without it, Will was a member of tour team and communicated well. He worked long demanding hours and I never had a problem with him. I would have no dramas in recommending Will'

    'Evelyn was employed as a cook for a season of picking. She was a good worker and we had no issues.'

What is AgDraft?

AgDraft is the online platform connecting Australian farmers to skilled rural workers, fast. Workers of all ages and backgrounds are creating personal AgDraft profiles, complete with skills and experience levels. Farmers are posting jobs to this trusted network of workers, who’ve all been verified by previous employers.

Get Matched

AgDraft takes the stress out of finding a job or hiring the right worker. Our system cleverly matches workers and farmers based on their requirements (think relevant skills, availability, location and previous reviews) so you can spend less time scrolling. We’ll even let you know if new matches sign up online. Once notified of your matches, the ball’s in your court – you decide if you’d like to make contact or discuss further details of the work.

Find Quality

Word-of-mouth recommendations certainly aren’t new to rural communities – we’ve simply taken the concept online to create the most trusted group of farmers and workers we can. At AgDraft, we allow both farmers and workers to review and recommend each other. A good employer with a strong star-rating is more likely to lock in excellent workers who’ll settle in fast on-farm. Same goes for well-reviewed employees – they’ll be rewarded for their hard work and snapped up into great positions.

Save time

With our easy-to-use platform, employers will simply spend less time searching for labour and chasing up references. Workers will spend less time hunting for the right job. On farms, we know that finding the right fit first time, everytime, is the best way to get jobs done quickly and enjoyably. Thanks to our background in both family farming and corporate agriculture, we know the challenges first-hand. We’re passionate about making the Australian industry more efficient. We also want to give you more time to do what you love. Let us help you speed up every step of the hiring and job-hunting process, from listing your profile or job, to making the final decision.
