Job Description

Our organic farming business is exploding! - we are looking for dynamic, reliable, trustworthy individuals who enjoy working with the public and take pride in their work.

You will be responsible for your own market/event set-up and will be able to sell to the public at the capital's foremost farmers' markets and events. You will be selling our best-quality, home-reared organic meat and produce, as well as cooking up a treat on the griddles.

You will need basic maths sufficient to add up the transactions and to handle cash, you will also need to be a clean person who takes pride in personal hygiene since handling food and meat is also part of the job.

We are looking for people with a 'can-do' attitude who love a challenge, who are outgoing and enthusiastic by nature.

Essential for the role, you must:

  • be reliable
  • be punctual
  • be ok with early mornings
  • be trust-worthy

  • have a 'can-do' attitude

Desirable for the role, you could:

  • be confident
  • be competant
  • be outgoing and good at engaging people
  • be precise
  • be professional

What's in it for you?

As well as being competitive pay you will gain, market and event experience, develop your networks as you will be working with a wide range of interesting people across producing, processing, marketing, event management, as well as meeting all your lovely customers, most of whom are, very interesting people.

Moreover, you will develop/hone your arithmetic skills and sales skills, and get the chance to push-yourself and finish the day with a real sense of achievement and accomplishment.

We will also be offering on-the-job training, but also will offer a health and hygiene certificate for those who don’t have this already this / need a refresher.

Potential for development

As a fully-certified organic farm business we are keen to develop our business. We have a fully working farm, with pork, beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, duck, goose, egg and vegetable enterprises, all of which, as we get to know you / you get to know us may be of interest to you and how you develop your career.

When is the work?

The work is mostly on Saturdays and Sundays but we are currently developing markets for weekdays too, which you may be able to apply for later.

Are you up for a challenge / bored of the 9-5 drudge / love a sense of achievement?
