Homegrown sales teams
Being part of Riverford is about much more than flavoursome organic food. We try to build long-lasting relationships with our customers and welcome them into a community of likeminded cooks. This begins at the very start of their journey with us – which is why we employ our own friendly and knowledgeable dedicated sales teams.
What we look for
- Confident and charismatic
- Happy working to daily targets
- Passionate about good food
- Someone who relishes a challenge?
Then we’d love to hear from you. Previous experience isn’t a must, as long as you can throw yourself wholeheartedly into a lively team.
You’ll also need to be a confident driver with a full UK driving licence, as you’ll be having lots of adventures in one of our ‘Live Life on the Veg’ vans.
There will be some early starts and late finishes, with extensive weekend working – but there’s plenty of fresh air and fun to be enjoyed, and no two days will ever be the same!
What do we offer you?
As well as a competitive basic salary and uncapped commission, benefits include…
- Comprehensive induction training on our beautiful farm in Devon, followed by an individual training plan
- Casual, comfortable dress code – we’ll provide all of your branded clothing
- 33 days’ holiday (pro rata if you're part of our seasonal team). For permanent employees, there’s a generous company pension scheme and an annual profit share
- Heaps of social events for staff, including two big parties every year
- 25% off everything we sell online
- Free organic fruit and veg (you get to take home the display produce)
As of June 2018, Riverford is employee owned. The company founder Guy has chosen employee ownership to protect Riverford’s values, ensure its independence, and because he believes the employees are the best people for the job. When you join us you will become a ‘co-owner’, which gives you greater insight into the working of the business and more of a say about how Riverford should be run, through our employee council and trustees.

More about the job: Sales representatives (permanent/full time)
We’re very proud of our regional sales representatives, with successful teams established up and down the country. Our representatives have a passion for fresh, great-tasting, ethically sourced and 100% organic produce – and love to share this passion with others. It’s never a hard sell; most people love talking about food!
It’s an enjoyable, team-focused, outdoors role; a field-based sales position with a difference. We look to build a great team atmosphere, with competitions, road trips away, and big parties to celebrate our successes together.
You will work 5 out of 7 days (4 in London). We give you a variety of activity across the week; visiting high streets, shopping centres, businesses and some lovely events at the weekend too.
The variety and planning in your activity gives you the best potential to earn some fantastic commission (uncapped) which is accompanied by a very competitive basic salary. If based in London, we’ll also pay for an annual zone 1-4 travel card. Average yearly earnings are between £20-35,000 per annum together with full Riverford benefits.
More about the job: Seasonal show team (fixed term)
Our seasonal sales representatives work at food events, festival and county shows during the summer season, talking to people about the benefits of ordering their first veg box.
You can be based in Devon or travel from further afield; it’s all about bringing great people together. Teams work together for up to 3-6 days at a time, sharing temporary accommodation and travelling to some incredible summer events – Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival, Taste of London, Pub in the Park, regional county shows and many more. It’s a great way to make new friends and fun memories while you earn.
We offer a minimum salary of £330 per week, paid monthly, together with generous uncapped commission that could give you £250+ per week extra. While you’re travelling, you’ll be fully covered from breakfast to dinner, with accommodation taken care of too. Saving made easy!
