We are working with one of the UK's leading berry growers, who are now looking for a Crop Specialist to join one of their farms.

About our Client

Established for over 50 years, our client is one of the UK's leading producers of berries. They have several farms across the south of England and run a very successful operation. This role will be based at their 450-acre site near Guildford.

About the Role

Focusing on strawberries and raspberries, you will be crop walking and monitoring pest and diseases, irrigation, and general crop husbandry. You will be liaising with the relevant line managers to ensure that the right growing procedures are done, and all crops are growing according to plan.

Crop forecasting and planning will also fall into your remit.
