The timing of the work is dictated by the harvest season, but these are all full time positions for a fixed period and will be shift work.  We look for people with a variety of skills and experience and often take people on for a number of months who can move to different roles as the season progresses.”

I like to be outside and I feel this is helping me to learn a real variety of skills, which will be essential for my future career in the industry. Working in the horticultural sector is really interesting and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a job to consider it.”
