We are looking for someone with a positive attitude who can work well as part of a small team. Though previous experience in the food and beverage manufacturing industry would be preferred, it is not strictly necessary.
An attention to detail is paramount as the successful candidate will be expected to have an appreciation for quality control as well as health and safety standards. A level of fitness and a strong back are definitely required as many aspects of the job are physically demanding. Due to our rural location the successful candidate must be able to transport themselves, ideally holding a full UK driving license. A current fork-lift truck license is also preferred.
This is a chance to come and be a part of our team, working in a remote, luscious idyll alongside passionate and hardworking colleagues. A job that follows the meandering path of the seasons and offers many unique experiences that are unlikely to be found elsewhere.
