Are you passionate about growing great tasting berries? Do you have proven commercial growing experience? If so, we'd love to hear from you.

We're seeking an eager Soft Fruit Grower to join an inclusive berry company as they continue to experience successful business growth.

You'll have the full support of the Farm Manager and Technical Manager as you all work towards a clear vision of growing extraordinary tasting fruit and a sustainable approach to farming.

Your main responsibility will be to increase the yield of the crop and improve the growing processes on the farm. You'll strive to achieve this by providing the best possible plant care, including pest management, irrigation, weed control, feeding, pruning, supporting and training. You'll also be working in the glasshouse to manage the climate and carry out crop walking with the agronomist.

The ideal person will be:

Qualified in horticulture, agronomy, agriculture or food production.
Have commercial growing experience, preferably in soft fruit.
Have experience of working in protected cropping including irrigation and ventilation.
A strong communicator and computer-literate.

This company is committed to their team and have developed a positive and happy working environment for you to join. We're therefore looking for people who are excited about learning and are keen to continue their own personal development.

If you wish to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact Edina Bremner, in complete confidence, on 01780 480 530 of edina@morepeople.co.uk We'd love to talk to you about how we can help you develop into your next opportunity.
