For over 60 years, our client has been growing some of the finest quality produce in the UK. Starting as a small farming establishment in the 1950s, this family owned farming business now grows over 100 varieties of fruits, vegetables, salads and herbs across multiple sites throughout the South East. Due to their sustained growth, this commercial farm is now seeking a Grower Manager to assist in salad and vegetable production as they continue to embark on their ambitious plans for the future.

This will be a varied job that will require you to carry out a number of tasks such as all crop production duties, staff management duties, working to budgets and dealing with suppliers.

We would like to hear from you if you have UK experience (2-3 years minimum) of growing salad and/or vegetable crops either indoors or outdoors. A degree in agriculture or horticulture is ideal; however, if you have the relevant experience but no degree, please do not hesitate to get in touch. A full UK driving licence is essential.

This job is a challenging yet rewarding position that is a brilliant opportunity for ambitious and motivated fresh produce growers/farmers that are keen to progress and develop their career.

Any questions? Do not hesitate to contact Edina Bremner on 01780 480 530 or edina@morepeople.co.uk for a strictly confidential conversation.
