Jobs - where can I look to find a dairy job?

The following provides information on different ways to find jobs in the Australian dairy industry.

To work in Australia, you will first need to obtain a visa from the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection 

Once this has been obtained, we suggest you search the following websites for dairy industry work opportunities:

Newspaper search

  • When in a local area looking for work, one of the best ways to find a job is in the local paper.
  • The classifieds section of newsletters such as Farmlink (Fonterra) or The Devondaler (Murray Goulburn).
  • Agricultural papers such as Stock & Land, Stock Journal, The Weekly Times (as listed above).
  • National and capital city newspapers offer job advertising for jobs in particular areas.
