Agricultural Workforce Resilience Package

Seasonal work has been affected by COVID-19. Previous travel and border restrictions impacted agriculture, food processing, and critical food supply chain businesses  

In response, th​e Tasmanian Government's Agricultural Workforce Resilience Package provided $1.9 million over two years to attract and retain local workers.

The Package includes:
  • Tassie Harvest Jobs. Take Your Pick - the local agricultural ​jobs campaign​ to encourage Tasmanians to consider new career options
  • support for industry resilience, promotion and targeted development of skills and training​, including an industry-sponsored boost to regional transport​
  • extending the Farmpoint one-stop point of contact for primary producers
  • boosting Safe Farming Tasmania to ensure ​agricultural employees are workforce ready and workplaces are COVID-19 safe
  • establishing a ​roundtable with experience and knowledge of the Tasmanian agricultural industry and their local communities, to provide advice on Government projects and campaigns
