Harvest Labour Services

Q.I.T.E. provides Harvest Labour services (HLS) all year round to connect workers with growers in the horticultural industry at harvest time.

Q.I.T.E. are contracted by the federal government to deliver this service throughout the Tablelands and most recently Lakeland. 

HLS is a free service to assist employers/growers to find harvest workers locally or outside the area as required, we screen worker and match them to your needs and check to ensure that they are legally entitled to work in Australia.  Q.I.T.E. will also mobilise these jobseekers throughout the harvest area as required.

Harvest Labour Services staff liaise regularly with growers, industry groups and keep up with regional trends and industry needs.  This plays an important role in our communication with harvest workers outside the region as we are able to give advice and information on seasonal harvest, available facilities, transport and accommodation.

As of the 1st of July Q.I.T.E. was successful in expanding their Harvest Labour Services area from the Atherton Tablelands, Mareeba, Kuranda and Dimbulah to include Lakeland.
