Seasonal Farm Supervisor (Polytunnels)
39 hours per week
£10 per hour
We are looking for a polytunnel supervisor to join us between March and October. This role is largely based in our polytunnels though there will also be some outside work involved. You will look after everything from planting through to clearing and will mainly be working with basil, tomatoes and mini cucumbers.
Working with the other Polytunnel Supervisor, at our peak in the summer you could be looking after a team of around 20 so some previous experience of leading a team in an agricultural setting would be desirable. You will need good communication skills as you will be working with individuals who may not be very confident with English. We are looking for experience of working in a similar environment and it is essential that you have a full driving license for this position.
This is a fixed term contract between March-October. There is some potential for the contract to be extended but this will depend on how the season develops. The role is 39 hours per week spread over Sunday to Friday. Whilst the contract is 39 hours, you are likely to be doing some overtime depending on workload. Start times are between 4.45am and 6.45am with a variable finish. Based at Wash Farm, Buckfastleigh, Devon, TQ11 0JU
