Seasonal Worker Programme

The Seasonal Worker Programme contributes to the economic development of participating countries by providing access to work opportunities in the Australian agriculture and accommodation industries.  The Seasonal Worker Programme offers seasonal labour to employers in the agricultural industry, and employers in selected locations in the accommodation industry who can’t meet their seasonal labour needs with local jobseekers.

More information for seasonal workers and employers can be found through the Australian Government Department of Employment website or by contacting the Government of Nauru Seasonal Workers Unit.

The  International Labour Organisation (ILO) has developed a predeparture booklet for seasonal workers, with useful information about budgeting and saving, legal rights and obligations  and staying healthy and safe.
