Platinum Personnel have the privilege of supporting one of our prestigious clients, Andrew Peller Limited, to help source exceptional candidates to join their extraordinary company on the labour/production side of their business. If you are looking to join one of BC’s original Wineries that helped pioneer the BC wine industry and led the way to higher levels of craftsmanship and professionalism, then this is your perfect opportunity.

We are looking for General Labourers to join the Andrew Peller Limited team and forge a career that could see you progressing into a  role such as Harvest Laboratory Technician, Shipper/Forklift Operator, Cellarman, Packaging Machine Operator or Stockperson.

Depending on what position you progress into, you could be receiving an hourly wage of between $21 to nearly $26 per hour! And if that was not appealing enough, Andrew Peller Limited offer an outstanding benefits package that is hard to beat- including a pension!


The role: –

What your day to day will look like – as a General Labourer you will be rotating through a range of duties including operating packaging equipment, unloading delivery trucks and moving stock to the cellars, moving equipment throughout the site, quality testing, following work order tickets and of course cleaning and keeping the site clean and safe.

During the harvest season other responsibilities will include working outside with a forklift to load and unload trucks with full and empty grape containers as well as washing them and restacking them to ready for reuse. One other vital area will consist of processing the grapes after harvest where you will be helping with the loading and pressing of the grapes.

As this is a physical role, you will need to be able to lift 50lbs. Due to the nature of the wine business there is a requirement to work a range of shifts throughout the year which are predominately early/day shifts in addition to the requirement to work late or night shifts at times.

Andrew Peller Limited fosters a safe and healthy environment to produce high quality products so if you have knowledge or experience of HACCP or Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) then this will put you ahead of the competition.
