A large number of workers in the region are currently suffering from the unprecedented effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and look for alternative employment.

The 2020 harvest has finished for a number of wineries in the region, with the last expected to be complete by mid-April 2020.

The Margaret River Wine Association has been in contact with their local labour hire members and have been advised they have the necessary staff to complete the 2020 harvest but will be requiring staff for the winter pruning season which commences at the end of May.

It is understood that more than 450 people are employed for the pruning season in the Margaret River wine region.

To register your contact details for employment opportunities from May 2020, please contact the local labour hire companies electronically including: AHA Viticulture at ahaviticulture.com.au/employment/; Labour Solutions at laboursolutions.net/; Down to Earth at dtearth.com.au and Vinepower at vinepower.com.au/
