Our client is the foremost leader in its sector, growing a wide range of plants destined for its garden centre customers. They grow over two million pots annually continuously throughout the year changing products with the season. Their site consists of a range of both covered and uncovered growing areas to accommodate their diverse range of products. In addition to the core products, they also grow a range of seasonal products which includes wildflowers and cottage garden annuals.
As a result of continued expansion they are now looking to strengthen their team further particularly in the growing function.
This is an ideal role for an ambitious, hands on, hard working person with a passion for growing who is looking to develop their career in a dynamic and progressive business.
The role will be to manage the growing operation from propagation to planting out, growing to specification and then to cleaning and preparing the product for sale. You will cover all aspects of large scale plant production - open and covered grown including agronomy, man management and business management.
Ideally you will have a formal qualification in agriculture/horticulture, but hands on growing experience is an essential. In addition you will have good leadership skills, be good at problem solving and want to lead a team where the individuals take responsibility for their actions.
