One of the most progressive fresh produce companies in the UK of recent years, our Southern based client is widely recognised as one of Britain’s leading salad & herb growers. The company continues to innovate and diversify its business ensuring a successful and sustainable supply to leading retailers and food service sector within the UK. This success has been built on strong foundations of quality, service and a commitment to excellence.
This highly ambitious business now needs a very capable and practical individual that will pro-actively assist the lead Growing Manager with day-to-day responsibility for watercress production areas managing all details of the operation as required. You will consider all options to raise standards, increase productivity, crop hygiene, manage multi-disciplined team and hit budget. You will need to manage a specialist crop so specific hands-on experience of baby-leaf or hydroponics would be an advantage but not a prerequisite. The MOST important element will be your attitude and aptitude! You will need to have the appetite to be a leading contributor to a farming business that have plans to grow significantly within the next few years.
If you feel you have the skills and passion and ideally the growing experience and are looking for a new challenge, we want to hear from you!
