Workforce Planning

Workforce Planning Coordinator Project:

The NT Farmers Workforce Planning Coordinator project has been funded by the NT Department of Primary Industries & Resources until 30 June 2020. 

The project is quite broad and includes supporting agribusiness management;

  • with the necessary tools and information to implement employment practices that comply with workplace relations laws and industry standards
  • coordinating training for upskilling of both management and staff
  • by identifying employers needs & workforce gaps
  • by collating labour force statistics and information from in-field operations to influence policy and regulatory improvements e.g. visa reform.
  • by representing NT Farmers nationally, contributing high quality advice
  • to source international labour

Other tasks include improving career pathways in the NT agriculture industry, undertaking activities that attract Territorians to consider and embark on a career in horticulture or agriculture and promoting the industry to potential employees.
