Pick yourself a sweet job


Posted 5 February 2018

Get your hands dirty with a career in horticulture. The Sweetest Job program is back in 2018, ideal for those looking for employment and training opportunities in the food and agribusiness sector in the Moreton Bay Region.

The Sweetest Job program provides a Certificate II in Horticulture, practical horticultural skills, employability skills, work experience and assistance with job preparation.

Following successful campaigns in 2016 and 2017, the current program is being delivered in Caboolture from early February over nine weeks from Mondays to Thursdays.

Where are the jobs?

The Sweetest Job campaign is a Skilling Queenslanders for Work project, partnering budding green-thumbs with the very best local farms and producers across the Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast regions.

The Sweetest Job first launched in 2016, and the hugely successful campaign saw over 2,200 local people register for the opportunity to work on local strawberry farms.

With the support of the Queensland Government, through the Skilling Queenslanders for Work program, Regional Development Australia (RDA) Moreton Bay has secured 120 places to train, qualify and place passionate candidates into Agribusiness careers.
