Worker hospitality


Through the Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP) and the Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS), Pacific island and Timorese workers can access a range of different jobs in Australia through their government labour sending unit (LSU).

All workers can gain valuable skills, experience and income to take back to their communities.

If you want to participate, you will need to check your eligibility, contact your LSU and have a valid visa.
