Ag Career Start

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) is looking for enthusiastic farmers across Australia to participate as employers and hosts for young Australians participating in the AgCAREERSTART program. AgCAREERSTART is a future focused industry program that engages with the next
generation of agricultural workers. It is a great opportunity for the industry to attract a new cohort of young Australians to experience farm life and all it has to offer as a career pathway. Over 10 – 12 months, you will provide an on-farm job for a school leaver, or young Australian under 25. In your role as host, you will encourage your employee to become immersed in the local community and gain an appreciation of the opportunities within the agriculture sector. Download the information brochure here.
AgCareer Start is a 10-12 month Gap Year program to kick start young Australians' careers in Agriculture.
This unique gap-year program provides you with a paid job, training and development, not to mention the opportunity to build your networks within the agriculture industry. Download the information brochure here. Applications for 2023 open on July 12 and close October 18, 2022.
