We are excited to be working with one of the UK's largest independent soft fruit growers. This dynamic company is a leading European grower that is celebrated for its ground-breaking and forward-thinking growing techniques.
They have sites in the UK and abroad but as Growing Manager you will be working at the Kent site which is home to a state-of-the-art soft fruit table top production unit.

As Growing Manager, it will be your job to:
Lead the growing and crop planning for the one-hundred-acre site in Kent. Support will always be on offer by the Head of Growing.
Operate sophisticated computerised fertigation and irrigation equipment (PRIVA).
Recording accurate yield information.
You will also be responsible for motivating and running a small growing team.

We are looking for candidates who have:
Proven growing/farming experience in the horticultural industry.
Experience in growing soft fruit is of course desirable but it is not essential.
Ideally, you will also possess qualifications such as FACTS, BASIS, PA1, 2, 6a & 6b.
Experience of using PRIVA (or a similar system) is needed.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for motivated, enthusiastic and driven Growing Managers who would like to work for a horticultural business where we value our employees. We actively encourage personal growth and development.

To find out more, please contact Edina Bremner on 01780 480 530 or edina@morepeople.co.uk for a confidential conversation or apply via the link. We'd love to talk to you about how we can help you develop into your next opportunity.
