Wages: £8/hr, & monthly profit share available. Wages paid on a freelance invoice basis.
Hours: 2 days/16 hours+ per week needed in early spring/late autumn, and 3 days/24 hours+ per week needed in spring/summer/early autumn; flexibility available on hours/days.
Jobs to include: ground preparation, propagation, planting, weed control, harvesting produce, packing produce, delivering produce, light machinery work, occasionally managing other seasonal workers/volunteer days. This is a great chance to experience how all parts of a small market garden business work, with plenty of autonomy and responsibility in the day-to-day running of the business. The current head grower will still be available for guidance and advice whilst on leave; so an ideal opportunity for anyone thinking of starting their own horticultural business in the future.
Applicants should be highly motivated, reliable, physically fit, enthusiastic about sustainable food production, able to multi-task and hold a full clean driving licence. Some commerical growing experience is preferable. Please send a CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org; deadline is Monday 9th January 2017.
