Want to play your part in feeding the nation?

Fed up with working in glass that's not fit for purpose?

This business does a fantastic job of looking after their staff. This new role will allow you to learn from genuine experts and build your career.

This might just not be your next job, but the one after that too.

You might be working as a grower, or already have some supervisory experience. Either way, this business can support your development.

What's the Role?
The business grows across 30Ha, and this role would see you managing an area of this.

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

You'll see yourself working collaboratively with the other growers, 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?
The business values work ethic and experience over degrees.

You'll have worked in a commercial growing environment before, but whether that's salads, soft fruit or ornamentals, we want to hear from you.

You might have your spray certificates, and it's great if you do but it's not essential.

You'll be keen to build a career as well as be interested in fresh produce. If you're interested in tech that's great, as the business continually invests in the site to make it state-of-the-art.

What's next?
For an informal chat, please call me, Sarah on 01780 480530, email sarah@morepeople.co.uk, or drop me a message on LinkedIn. Don't worry if your CV isn't up to date, just send what you have already, and we can sort the rest later.
