Australia has a sheep shearer shortage: Is this the job for you?
If you’re looking for a tough job which pays well, you may be in luck.
Our friends in the bush are in need of more sheep shearers due to a boom in demand for wool.
With only 4,000 shearers tending to 70 million Aussie sheep, they need you.
Six-time Australian shearer of the year, Ian Elkins, joins Ben Fordham.
“We do need more hands on deck out in the bush.
“You need a good ticker, good hand-eye coordination. You can travel all around this lovely country we live in.”
Ian says it takes about 12 months to become a competent shearer and the training can be tough.
“It’s not suited to everyone. They’ll soon know whether they’re suited to it, Ben.”
