Employment
« on: October 24, 2010, 06:23:50 AM »
I have several years of experience in beekeeping and would accept seasonal
work on an apiary in Australia or New Zealand. Whom should I contact? How do I get this job?
First I need a job for this, provided it is easier to get visa

I have a lot of experience and knowledge in working with bees.Successful
beekeepers from their 120 hives, helping beginners in beekeeping and learn
and work with bees. I'm sure it'd be excellent fare in Australia or New Zealand.
I am a physicist to teach physics at school. Beekeeping is my favorite occupation,
and I'd like to be a professional I do beekeeping. This is my country very
difficult.Therefore I would like to use my knowledge of bees using in
Australia or New Zealand.
Poor knowledge of English will not affect my work. With the work I'd learned
the language better.

There is a big beekeeper in Moorooduc, Vic (use yellow pages) and he was quoted in the local rag about how there was no local workers and he was importing them from Europe.

The wages don't mean anything until you learn what the prices are in that area. There are areas in the US that $8.00 an hour will buy more than $20.00 an hour will buy in other areas.

I don't know what commercial beekeeper workers earn, but I believe the current minimum wage in Australia is $AUS12/hr.

Not when you consider what it costs to live here...
Rent : $200+ a week for a crappy flat/unit (I haven't been in the rental market for a while)
Food : $50-100 a week for one person.
Petrol : $1.20 a litre
Then you have all the other bills... $12 an hour (before tax!) doesn't go that far.

John at Pure Peninsula Honey is a great guy, it would definitely be worthwhile working with him. He runs LOTS of hives, all over SE Australia.  Wages in Australia for beekeeping, expect somewhere between $15 and $18 an hour, although one should never expect anything, of course ;).

If you want some other ideas PM me.

I plan to contact him, just to collect some documents and that all this translate into English.

Is there someone on the forum who works for him?

Have you not contacted him yet? If you really want a job i'd suggest just drop him an email and see what he has to say! no one on here is going to be able to give you better help than you dropping him a line and asking him all the questions you need
