Remain Focused: Seasonal Workers Urged
Another group of seasonal workers will be deployed under the Australian Seasonal Workers Programme leaving Fiji today .

The National Employment Centre (NEC) under the Ministry of Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations farewelled another group of seasonal workers who will be deployed under the Australia Seasonal Workers Programme leaving Fiji today.

The group was reminded to remain focused and be role models to other aspiring candidates when working overseas.

The group of 20 Fijian seasonal workers are returning for a second time upon the request of their previous employer. Majority of these returning workers were from the first group of Rotumans to go on the programme.

They will be employed by Fruitico based at the horticultural farm in Perth, Western Australia.

Fruitico harvests oranges and is the first farm in Western Australia that NEC has sent workers to.

Director NEC Lui Mario reminded the returning seasonal workers to keep up with the good performance as they are representing Fiji and not just their families or their villages.

“You are not going as an individual from your village or your district, you’re representing Fiji. So make Fiji proud and your families will be proud to,” he said.

“Be prepared and be on time as your good performance can pave the way for more Fijians to be involved in the scheme.”

He also reminded the group on maintaining their discipline and looking after each other in a foreign country.

There are only two employers registered with the Australian Government in Western Australia that Fiji is engaged with – Fruitico and Cabel Beach Resort and Spa.

These boys were identified by the employer via a local worker who had previously worked for the farm.
