JOB DESCRIPTION

Our clients are a family owned and operated production-focused farming business operating an intensive prime lamb breeding property located near Camperdown Vic. Covering some 1,200 Ha in Victoria’s productive south west, this property runs a self-replacing flock of around 6,000 composite ewes which are crossed to terminal sires with a focus on Prime Lamb production.

We are searching for a motivated, hardworking young person with a passion for agriculture and sheep production, to join the team as Junior Farm Hand. The job will include working closely with and reporting to the manager and will be focused on livestock husbandry and day to day management of the flock and farm. Pasture improvement and summer cropping is largely done by contractors but some experience in tractor operation and general farming would be an advantage.

  • A good range of practical farming skills ideal (fencing, water pipes, welding etc)
  • Manuel Drivers licence
  • Able to work in a physically demanding job
  • Own working dogs and/or experience with working dogs

To be considered for this role, applicants will ideally possess the following attributes -


  • Enthusiastic and passionate attitude
  • Willing to listen and learn
  • Honest and reliable
  • Happy to work hard and follow instructions
  • Able to work independently and as part of a team.
  • If you would like to work on a progressive sheep property with real opportunities for long term employment, and career progression within the business, this may be the job for you.

An attractive salary package will be negotiated with suitable applicants and assistance will be given to source suitable housing nearby if required. 

To apply for this role, please submit your up to date resume along with the contact details of a minimum three references that we can contact. A cover letter indicating why you are suited to this role will be held in high regard.
