We are an online fruit tree nursery that mail orders 1000's of fruit trees across Australia. The job would include permanent part time hours 9-3pm ( school hours ) 2 days per week or 7.30-4pm if that suits. Due to demand we may require you to be flexible for an extra 2 days per week.
The job can be fast paced with deadlines to meet as trucks come throughout the day to pick up plants that you have packed and prepared for customers all around Australia. We would require you to work in the sun to select plants with sun protective clothing. However most of the work is in a shaded dispatch shed where all the plants are packed.
An appreciation of plants is helpful and so is an existing knowledge of warehouse procedures including packing boxes with fast hand eye co-ordination. A minor mistake with the wrong label or plant can cause big problems down the line so an attention to detail or pride in your work is something that you need to bring to work with you.
Tasks are allocated to each staff member via their personal smartphone. You need to own a smartphone under 5 years old and be willing to use it in the workplace. The phone is required to view tasks, complete them and provide feedback on jobs assigned to you. A pre existing understanding of the way apps and webpages work to collect data is a big part of this role.
It is preferable that you live within 40km's of Kyogle NSW because being flexible and on call when we get a surge in orders to meet our customers expectations is important to us. Days and hours can be flexible so if you had other commitments due to children or community work we are happy to work with you.
Our most important policy is contributing to a positive team dynamics.
