Nursery Manager | Essex

Stuck in a role with nowhere to go?

Two main talking points here, self-development and salad. The question is how do they both tie in together? Well, how about you play a part in fixing the salad crisis, whilst developing yourself at the same time.

We have all been there, joined a business, and thought the opportunities were endless when there weren't. This is not the case here. This business has doubled in growing space since 2021, now operating on 9Ha, and they have big plans to grow considerably more.

The Opportunity
You will be working very closely with the Head of Growing, who is incredibly knowledgeable with over 20 years' of experience. This will give you the opportunity to learn about growing a variety of protected salad crops on a large scale. The promotion opportunities are clear to see, with the current Head of Growing starting as a Nursery Supervisor.

You will oversee 7 sites within close proximity of each other. You will already be managing a team, and the size of the team here can go up to 60 at peak. Using Priva and biological controls is part of the role, so you will have exposure to this and are keen to explore biological options where possible.

The Business
They use hydroponic growing methods and grow in over 9Ha of glass.

They have a strong team in the Nursery, who are self-sufficient and confident in carrying out their roles. Supplying to supermarkets, they have a constant need for products with the demand only getting higher.
