Hosting Testimonials

Tim Gleeson (Manager/Owner Gleeson Farms Pty Ltd)


We can have up to 16 trainees here during our harvest period.

This takes a lot of coordination and trust in the people you rely on to provide that labour force.

We have been dealing with the Narelle and the other staff from IRE for nearly 10 years now, and have always had the ability to tailor the type of skills we require with their help.

They have become a necessary part of our labour procurement program.

Tine Nymann

We have hosted trainees for 15 years, and have met some amazing people along the way. There has been ups and downs, all shared with our trainees.

IRE is always there to help you out if any problems arises. They are friendly, and very helpful and understanding.

IRE does a fantastic job in matching trainees and host families. Because of IRE we have made lifelong friends, and will continue to be part of the IRE program.

We can only recommend using IRE if you would like to host a trainee.

Schlink Family

Western Australia

Our family farming business has been welcoming IRE trainees onto our farm and into our lives for 15 years. We have hosted trainees from France, Switzerland, UK, Brazil, Denmark, South Africa and Germany.

The boys get to experience life in Australia, using different farming methods to their homeland. We enjoy learning about their countries, culture and farming practices as well as benefitting from a reliable and affordable workforce. We have found it to be a beneficial experience on both sides and look forward to welcoming our 23rd and 24th trainees this September intake.
