Spalding, Lincolnshire
Competitive package

Contract Type
Full Time

Think of a vegetable. 

Bet it was carrot.  Or was it 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 Operative (level 2) to enhance our operational team at DGM Growers based in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

As a Multi-Skilled Operative (level 2), 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. 

As and when required, the level 2 element of the role will kick in.  Our Multi-Skilled Operatives are flexible enough to step up as a Relief Team Leader during busy periods and to cover other employees who may be on leave.  Our Relief Team Leaders are responsible for the management and performance of a designated production line.  It will also be your responsibility to accurately order and check the appropriate produce labels ready to apply to the packaged product. 

If you have experience of working as a Production Operative or a Line Leader, 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 Operative (level 2), 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. 

We are also looking for somebody with proven supervisory experience in order to match the skills required for a Relief Team Leader.

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 Operatives (level 2) work 42.5 hours per week, including weekends (all calculated on a rota basis)

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
• Free on-site parking
