There are opportunities for training and career development within the company and you will have access to a modern canteen, be working in a clean, state of the art working environment and have your workwear provided!

Key Responsibilities as the Growing Assistant will include::

  • Propagating plants through techniques such as taking cuttings and seed sowing.
  • Tending to plants by watering, fertilizing, pruning, and monitoring for pests and diseases.

  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.
  • Basic computer literacy, including the ability to use software for inventory management and barcode scanning.
