We usually prefer people over 17 as they will be able to drive a vehicle on public roads. However we have employed younger people in some cases and will consider people on a case by case basis.

- I heard agworkforce requires a payment of at least $1000 up front for some course before there might be employment

- I think you should tell this as well!

Well I'm 15 and I live in australia, Born and bred here.

Would Agworkforce be able to find me work on a farm or with a harvesting outfit during my school Holidays?

Rubberduck: Yes on working holiday visas not on sponsorship

Ubuntu: No ag workforce do not charge people to find them work.
Some harvesting contractors, do have training requirements of their staff which is what i think you are referring to.

Tom Wilson @ Rural Enterprises has sorted my job out:

Any question I've asked he's already had the answers for, he's been really helpful and made sure he's got me on a farm for a long harvest, not a really quick harvest (sadly it means smaller kit, but i prefer the long harvests)

Harvest Force does not expect experienced guys to do their training course they RPL (assess) their skills and this only costs $200.

like your own company harvest force i guess.

so maybe you can tell us why they/you even charge experienced farmers so much money?? i understand that header drivers have
to get some instructions but with experienced labor this is done in
a few hours. if they need the labor than they should pay the course.

the same or the half price (still $500)
even for the experienced folks.. that's a questionable business model
