Vacancy for part time assistant grower at Bennison Farm, Colchester, Essex.

We are a small Community Supported Agriculture scheme supplying weekly Organic veg bags to our local members. We are looking for a part time assistant grower to work alongside the main grower and with our volunteers at regular workdays. The job will involve all aspects of growing, harvesting and packing the produce to provide our members with their share of the harvest throughout the year.

Previous experience and drivers license strongly desirable. More importantly the applicant needs: the strength, stamina and motivation required for this physical job where much of the work done by hand, outdoors, in all weathers; a commitment to Organic and sustainable agriculture; and a friendly, approachable manner and willingness to work with our community of volunteers.

Hours are 2.5 - 3 days p/w March to October and 1.5 - 2 days p/w from November - February based on an 8hr day. Pay £8/. Please note - I need a minimum commitment of the employee working to the end of this calendar year.

Application deadline 9th April. Start date flexible – preferably by end of April. Selected applicants will be invited two trial workdays to determine who is best suited to the job.

Please send your CV and covering letter and provide two references. Apply to Danny Steele, [email protected].
