Qld Gov #pickqld bonus

We know that workforce attraction is a major challenge for our agriculture sector.

To help the effort, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is offering new workers to the industry a $1,500 #pickqld bonus.

The $1,500 is paid in two instalments, an initial $500 after 10 days work within a consecutive 28-day period (4 weeks) and a second and final payment of $1,000 after 30 days of additional work within a consecutive 70-day period (10 weeks).

The #pickqld bonus is available to workers who started employment from 1 June 2021, who are aged 16 or over and have the right to work in Australia.

Applications are made by the worker via QRIDA, with proof of employment and hours required from the employer/s.

Payments are made direct to the worker via an Australian bank account.
