You will be responsible for a growing operation with an expectation to grow to both customer and internal specifications. You will be maintaining glasshouse environments, ensuring irrigation is done to the highest of standards and carry out regular crop walks. You will be confident in mixing and applying feeds, monitoring for pests and diseases, and chemical spraying when required.
You will have previous growing experience within a commercial nursery. You will hold your PA1 and PA6 certificates and be comfortable using these. You will be confident as a solo worker, being able to demonstrate skills in irrigation, pest and disease monitoring and crop protection methods. You must be willing to learn and adapt in the role, and a horticulture qualification is desirable.
