Planning your agriculture workforce

Use the Workforce Planning Connect toolkit to help you:

  • understand your workforce
  • build your skills in workforce planning
  • respond to your workforce needs, now and in the future.

The toolkit is developed for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in the agriculture industry.

The Queensland Agriculture Industry Workforce Plan is a 5-year strategy to address workforce issues in the agriculture sector.

Finding workers

Contact your local Queensland Agriculture Workforce Network officer for help with finding and training workers.

Recruit new workers through job advertisements, online and social media.

Agriculture workers from the Pacific Islands and Timor-Leste can access support from our workforce liaison officers.

Accommodating workers

The Queensland Rural Workers' Accommodation Initiative makes it easier to:

  • repurpose existing buildings
  • develop temporary on-farm accommodation for workers.

Continuity planning

Access our advice and templates for agribusiness continuity planning, including a communication toolkit, videos and translated resources to help you prioritise your agribusiness workforce.
