Seasonal Workers are employees hired into a position for a short term. They are mostly part-time or temporary workers that help out with increased work demands or seasonal work that arise in different industries.

Some examples of seasonal worker industries include:

  • pastoral
  • agriculture
  • aquaculture and fisheries
  • horticulture
  • meat processing
  • food processing
  • hospitality
  • accommodation
  • tourism

Seasonal workers can assist employers to cope with fluctuating demands within their industry to fill employment gaps unable to be met by the local workforce.

Seasonal workers also contribute to the economic development of their community and country of origin, often starting businesses or supporting family education and quality of life on return from placement.
