Tips for finding fruit pickers jobs in France

Fruit pickers jobs in France are surprisingly easy to come by once you know where to look. Grape seasons and other fruit harvesting seasons may vary depending on regions and species, so it's important to do your research to make sure that there will be work available. Here are a few tips to help you locate opportunities:

  • Work abroad agencies offer to set you up with fruit picking jobs right across Europe. Some of these agencies offer an hourly salary and even include accommodation. However it's important to do your research on agencies before signing up for a job - or before giving them any personal information. Check out online reviews and ask around to see if anyone has any first hand expereince with them.
  • Local farmers and grape growers may use local media - like local websites, newspapers and radio stations, to advertise positions. Bear in mind that these will probably be in French, and you may be expected to have enough French language skills to conduct a job interview.
  • Large vineyards and farms may advertise on national recruitment websites, so these are always worth checking out. Employment procedures are likely to be more established and you may be able to complete the application and interview process entirely in English.
  • Hostels often carry job boards with a list of current fruit picking jobs. The hostel may even have a partnership with local farms to accommodate their workers for a reduced price.
  • Speak to other travellers. Word of mouth is often the best way to hear about fruit picking jobs.
