Full Job Description
Work in the most modern hatchery in Australia, hatching chicks as part of our dedicated team

Permanent full-time
Work 38 hours per week over 4 days & have 3 days off
Above award pay rate, starting at $22 per hour
Commitment to the Health and Safety of all employees

About the Role

Darwalla is seeking motivated team members to work in our modern chicken hatchery, located in Allora, between Toowoomba & Warwick. The hatchery can operate 7 days per week, but you will generally be required to work a minimum of 38 hours per week, over 4 days/week with 05.45am starts. Applicants should have a flexible approach to changing work times/days and working overtime as and when production requires, so having your own reliable transport is a must.

The successful candidates will be required to carry out a wide range of tasks including egg setting and transfer, chick take off and processing and various cleaning jobs. The work will be quite physical, so applicants must be fit and healthy. A pre-employment medical, including a drug screening test, will be undertaken.

The poultry industry has very strict bio-security and animal welfare standards, so all employees are restricted from keeping pet birds, poultry and pigs and residing with others who work at other poultry or involved with pig farming/hunting. The hatchery is a shower-on, shower-off facility.

Skills & Experience

Successful candidates must have the following attributes:
MUST meet bio-security requirements
hard working & reliable
a positive attitude
team players who are happy to undertake different tasks
have a tolerance to working with poultry, in an environment which can be dusty and noisy (safety equipment provided)
good attention to detail
the ability and willingness to work safely
good communicator, with a good understanding of English, both written & oral
previous experience in factory, production or farming is an advantage, but all training is provided
