Berry Gardens Growers Ltd, the UK’s leading soft and stone fruit co-operative, seeks to appoint an additional agronomist to support their growers.
The successful applicant will be expected to visit growers according to an agreed schedule providing a complete and holistic approach to crop agronomy; from strategic decisions including crop production planning through to crop husbandry.
Applicants should have at least three year’s experience in a similar role in agricultural or horticultural crops and preferably have BASIS and FACTS. Training to the required qualifications may be provided for those candidates who are not currently certified.
The successful applicant should have a sound knowledge of growing practices in their current role. A suitable induction period will be arranged for those candidates who are otherwise excellent but need time to gain knowledge of our crops.

This is a permanent salaried position with associated benefits, including a company car.
