Think of a vegetable.
You probably thought of a carrot. Or maybe even a potato?
You could have chosen pak choi, or choi sum. In fact, you could have thought of fennel, Jerusalem artichokes or even celeriac. Have you even heard of any of these vegetables? At DGM we are specialist growers, importers, packers and suppliers of niche products like these. With a very broad customer base, you may have even seen our produce in leading supermarkets and retail stores.
We are ideally looking for a Multi-Skilled Production Operative to enhance our operational team at DGM Growers based in Spalding, Lincolnshire.
As a Multi-Skilled Production Operative, you’ll be required to sort, trim, count, check, weigh, lift and pack fresh, niche vegetables in line with our customer specifications, carefully applying the correct labels whilst constantly checking for quality.
If you spot any issues of concerns with the quality of our vegetables, it’ll be your responsibility to report this to the Production Team Leader as soon as possible so that appropriate action can be taken.
If you have experience of working as a Production Operative, you are one step closer to becoming part of our unique team. If you have experience in working with fresh produce, we would love to hear from you!
As a Multi-Skilled Production Operative, you’ll need a keen eye for detail as you’ll be trained to spot product issues to ensure that only perfect stock reaches our customers’ stores. You’ll also need to be a strong communicator as it’s vital that everybody is kept in the loop at DGM Growers.
Ideally you’ll be well organised with the ability to meet tight deadlines as it can be pretty hectic here, especially in peak seasons!
Offering a competitive salary and attractive benefit package, our Multi-Skilled Production Operatives work a 10 in 14 shift pattern of 42.5 hours per week, to include alternate weekends.
We are in a pretty remote area, so it is vital that you are able to drive
If this role sounds like it would be perfect for you, we would love to hear from you!
Our benefits include:
• 25 days holiday plus eight bank holidays per annum
• Pension scheme
• Company share scheme
• Childcare voucher scheme
