Grower Manager

Protected Salads

Lea Valley

Looking for the autonomy you know you're capable of?

Want to put your expertise to use and train the team around you?

This is a chance to work for a business as they open their new, second glasshouse in the Lea Valley.

What's the Role?

Any grower or grower supervisor will know what's involved in the role. Managing the team and irrigation, P&D, nutrition.

You'll have full overview of the growing operation across this 5ac glasshouse.

You'll see yourself working collaboratively with their other site, as well as working with the owners to implement best practices and continuous improvement.

The role is hands on, and there's no doubt you will be working hard but the rewards are there. If you have a real passion for growing fresh produce alongside great teams this could be just the role for you.

What do I need?

Previous experience supplying UK supermarkets would be advantageous, along with knowledge of growing protected edible crops.

You'll already have your spray certificates and be confident in using them, as well as experience in managing or supervising teams.

You might be a grower manager ready for something fresh, or you might be a grower supervisor ready to take the next step. Either way, I want to hear from you.

Who do I get to work for?

Now, the business.

They are a successful salad producer supplying UK supermarkets at their current site.

They've got the new glasshouse and site, it's good to go and now they need a Grower Manager to take the reins.

What's next?
