Job Details

(Assistant) Production Manager

Protected Salads


Want to play your part in feeding the nation?

Fed up with working in glass that's not fit for purpose?

We're working exclusively with Tangmere Nurseries as they look to strengthen their team. They do a fantastic job of looking after their staff and this role will give you the opportunity to learn from genuine experts and build your career.

This might just not be your next job, but the one after that too.

Tangmere are looking at taking on either a production manager or an assistant production manager - so whatever the experience, we want to hear from you.

What's the Role?

Tangmere Nurseries grow across 30Ha, and this role would see you managing an area of this.

Any grower or grower supervisor will know what's involved in the role. Supervising the team and irrigation, P&D, nutrition.

You'll see yourself working collaboratively with the other growers, as well as working with the owners to implement best practices and continuous improvement.

The role is hands-on, and there's no doubt you will be working hard but the rewards are there. If you have a real passion for growing fresh produce alongside great teams this could be just the role for you.

What do I need?

Tangmere values work ethic and experience over degrees.

You'll have worked in a commercial growing environment before, but whether that's salads, soft fruit or ornamentals, we want to hear from you.

You might have your spray certificates, and it's great if you do but it's not essential.

You'll be keen to build a career as well as be interested in fresh produce. If you're interested in tech that's great, as the business continually invests in the site to make it state-of-the-art.
