Growing Manager

Mid-Lothian

£negotiable plus relocation

Ready to make a change in an evolving and growing business?

Due to internal plans, this could not only be your next job, but the one after that too.

What's the job?

This will see you report to the Head of Growing Operations, who has a wealth of knowledge. Between the two of you, you'll see this business go from strength to strength.

The day-to-day will see you splitting your time across 3 sites, covering 60ac of growing.

You'll be there to lead the development of teams in all aspects of growing from seed sowing to picking. You'll be creating plant management schedules and spray programmes to ensure these trees are top quality.

You'll be working closely with suppliers to make sure your team have what they need to.

This role has a strategic and operational focus, too. You'll be implementing Standard Operating Procedures, coordinating labour and ensuring H&S is a top priority across the sites.

The business is heavily researching new innovative methods of doing what they're doing, and you'll get to have your say, and be the person to implement these new and exciting plans.

What do I need?

You'll have a background in horticulture. Whether this be commercial growing or horticultural operations, we want to hear from you.

Communication and people management will come naturally to you.

You'll already understand the seasonality of a business like this and be able to use your knowledge and skills to plan and execute the most efficient running of these sites.

What's next?

For an informal chat about the position, please call me, Sarah on 01780 480530, email sarah@morepeople.co.uk or drop me a message on LinkedIn. Don't worry if your CV isn't up to date, just send what you have already, and we can sort the rest later.
