Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria
The SSAA Farmer Assist program is fully operational across Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria meaning both SSAA members and farmers can register and use the program. Interested SSAA members from those states are invited to begin the easy four-step process to register for the program and start applying for jobs.
Please note there are specific requirements for SA members and WA members during the registration process.
The release process is staggered to ensure we build a substantial resource base of qualified members who will be able to cover any farmer request. This is an essential part of the program that needs to be in place prior to external promotion and release to farmers groups. We only have one chance to impress farmers and we need to make sure we can provide the service we are promoting to make the program a success. That’s why it may take some time to move from the member registration stage to the fully operational stage in your state.
We anticipate that it will take time to build trust in the program within the farming community and therefore the uptake will be slow at first. We ask for your patience and understanding with this. We are committed to the long-term success of the program and promotion will be ongoing. We will notify you via email and our Facebook page when farmers begin to post jobs in your state. Don’t let a slow start get you concerned - this program will continue to build over time.
Four-step process to get involved
1) Members must read the Complete Program Booklet and commit to obey to the program’s safety, animal welfare and ethical hunting requirements.
2) Members who are not currently part of a SSAA Conservation & Wildlife Management branch must attend a SSAA range and undertake the self-guided shooting competency assessment using the approved SSAA Farmer Assist Assessment Target.
3) Go to the sign-up form, enter the necessary details and complete registration.
4) Respond to the system-generated email from SSAA Farmer Assist as directed to verify your account. This will allow you to login to the Farmer Assist jobs page and begin investigating the jobs board and be ready to reply to jobs.
