This employer has vacancies in the following categories:
Based in Wigtoft, we are a nursery growing containerised conifers for the wholesale market. We operate on a single site of 26 acres and propagate around 95% of our stock ourselves.
With a multitude of tasks that need completing throughout the year, work is very varied and we are able to offer our permanent team a full time contract of 39 hours per week all year round. In addition, during busy periods (usually March - July) we also have overtime hours available.
We currently have vacancies for general horticultural workers whose role would include tasks like: moving and spacing plants, cleaning and sweeping beds, hand weeding crops, working on potting machines, cleaning and labelling plants in the despatch area and packing trolleys. In winter months, we work on propagation, taking cuttings from adult plants and also grafting.
We place a strong emphasis on having a flexible team which means that all members of our team are trained to carry out tasks right across the whole nursery, apart from roles that require specific qualifications.
In addition to recruiting general horticultural workers, we also are interested in hearing from anyone who has PA1, PA2 and PA6 qualifications. Although anyone with these skills would spend the majority of their time fulfilling general nursery jobs, they would also spend some of their time completing the spray programme.
We also have a seasonal and part time driver vacancy. Using our 7.5 tonne lorries we deliver many of our orders ourselves direct to garden centres on journeys with no overnight stays. Interested candidates should hold a license of category C1 or above. CPC training would be available if required.
Rates of pay for all vacancies depend on previous experience in our sector. However, this should not deter candidates with no experience from showing an interest as full training will be provided on-site.
We look forward to hearing from anyone who would like more information about joining our friendly and welcoming team.
