Live in Caretaker

Live in Caretaker/Management Couple

(Worker Accommodation)

 We’re Costa. Australia’s leading grower, packer and marketer of premium quality fresh fruit and vegetables.

On the land, in distribution centres, and out on the roads – Costa people work hard to bring the freshest produce to tables across Australia.

But joining our team is about more than just hard work. It’s about picking a meaningful, sustainable job that’s good for you, and for Australia.

Who we’re looking for:

Costa is seeking seeking an experienced Caretaker or couple to live onsite, in a well maintained one-bedroom ensuite cabin, as resident Caretakers to manage the day to day operations and maintenance of the farm’s worker accommodation grounds and facilities capable of housing 100 workers. The onsite accommodation is mostly comprised of cabins, dongas and powered and unpowered caravan parking sites. There are also communal kitchens, lunchrooms, showering facilities and a laundry area for workers. No swimming pools are onsite.

This role best suits an applicant or couple with an energetic “get up and go” mentality and flexible approach to work-days/hours which will fluctuate seasonally subject to citrus or grape harvest.

Free accommodation and no cost utilities form part of the remuneration package on offer.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Cleaning living quarters, shared facilities (e.g. cooking, laundry & showering), farm office and field toilets.
  • General grounds maintenance.
  • Maintaining worker tenancy records and recording accommodation related deductions.
  • Coordinating tradespeople and contractors to attend onsite to perform work.

 What you’ll bring to the role:

  • Previous experience managing an accommodation facility would be highly regarded but is not essential.
  • Basic computer skills.
  • A Driver’s License is essential.
  • First Aid certificate or willingness to obtain one.

We care for our people:

People are the heart of Costa. Our employees enjoy some of the best benefits and conditions in the industry. From competitive pay to health, wellbeing, and further learning and development opportunities. No matter the role, you’ll always benefit from a caring environment that encourages and supports you to thrive, grow and connect.
