Employment Options After Your Regional Work in Australia
Many travellers that embark on their regional work in Australia experience their first taste of physical work and therefore dread the thought of it. What some do not realise is that this kind of work can be much more beneficial to them than they think. From sitting in a cosy office with beers in the fridge and table tennis tables to picking fruit while keeping an eye out for snakes and spiders – it can be quite a change for some people. Although this may be an emotional roller coaster for some, there are some great benefits to outdoor physical work such as fresh air and being more active with frequent movement which contributes to improving both physical and mental health.
Types of Regional Work in Australia
The type of work applicable can vary as it is down to the location the work is based. People can conduct their regular day-to-day jobs such as nursing or hospitality, but the ones set out by the Australian Department of Immigration are agriculture, construction, forestry, marine and mining. The most common and easiest source are fruit picking, dairy farming, and mining. The skills and experience gained from this kind of work are invaluable to workers, even though they may not appreciate it. Heavy lifting, cleaning up and moving materials are some of the everyday typical tasks required to be done. This is no different to general construction labouring. These skills are in high demand in Australia today as the number of international travellers has reduced due to Covid-19 which mean the construction industry is experiencing a shortage of workers.
