Agriculture is Australia’s second largest export industry. Valued at $60 billion, it supports 1.6 million jobs across supply chain areas such as production, retail, logistics, processing and marketing.
As the nation’s largest grain-growing region and a significant producer of Australia’s meat, livestock, dairy, wool, horticulture and honey products, Western Australia's agricultural sector offers many career opportunities, from working with livestock on a farm through to scientific research.
There really is something for everyone, and now is a great time to join this growing industry sector and start your journey to upskill or change direction to a new career path!
